Ford F100 Pickup

Recommended Posts

Have finally made a start on my F100 Resin body (Munterwerks)

 

Picked up a cheap kinsmart diecast Chevy wrecker in which the whole back half was in plastic.

So my plan is to mate them together to build a Ford Tow truck / wrecker.

 

Seems to fit quite well.

Hey Chet - thanks for the reminder - not much progress on this lately as life keeps getting in the way. I have the kits' windows fitting snugger now after some more careful carving and filing.

I also filled in the wheel arches a little as I thought the openings looked a little too big..

 

Next job is to make some sides for the tray and get it into primer... & yep it's a lovely shell so PM Mr Munter if you are keen.

Ok so happy with rear tray now and have it sitting here mocked up on a PCS-32 chassis from Pendles..

Next step is to fit some body mounts and get it running...

Looking good, Pat.

 

Whatever you do please allow for some weight addition to counter balance the rather high COG.

Yes, the weight of the Penelope Pitlane made a difference.

 

Are you suggesting we introduce ute racing?

 

I am reluctant to suggest anything to our group these days.

Got this running on the weekend and it's a hoot to drive.

As the wise one said - it needed quite a bit of weight underneath to keep in the groove, but goes surprisingly well.

All blue tacked in for now which will need tidying up at some stage...

I used plastic Avantslot front wheels all round and trued up some standard Racer tyres - I think they were..? Grip quite well.

 

Handles so much better without the tow rig - but I've made my bed and it's just for fun. Unless we bring back truck racing ... B)

Coming along nicely, I must of missed this post back in May.

 

The Kinsmart models do come in handy for their plastic pieces.

 

Can you not use the light etc from the Kinsmart model?

 

I used the chrome etc for one of Munters Resin 57 Corvette, still no chassis though.

Matt.

Thanks Matt - you just reminded me I have the cherry roof light and the wing mirror squirreled away somewhere... hmmm - will look at headlights now as well....

 

That chrome looks good on the Vette too!

You need some greaser hanging out the window

 

I'm thinking this bloke might make a good Towie ?

Thanks Matt. I couldn't find a pale enough early 'Gulf' blue so attempted to mix and airbrush.

However it was a complete experiment as I'd not used it for a finished job before and probably should have practiced... a lot.

 

Hence the 'dirty' look to hide many flaws...

 

Here's some earlier pics

Interior sorted.

 

A quick paint of the kits vac tray, donor steering wheel from a BMW 635csi & 'Bob' got a lick of paint.

Shame to use him inside but - only had helmeted options...
