Cool project. I never seen this kit before, or heard of that maker. Looks like a decent kit.

Spencer,have looked in the box and cant find a shoehorn..Stick out tongue

Had a test with the phaeton lump and it fits ok.

Plenty of room methinks.

Thought I would show the soft white tyres on the kit..

That's neat. I thought they would be hard kit plastic. I checked out the ICM website and I am intrigued with this kit. I think I'm going to try to find one of these C cabs, or perhaps the Model T Roadster. The fire truck variant was cool, too.

Thanks gents.Big Smile

It's great having a base kit to do this with and not  a 'custom' kit to start with.

Nice work on this kit.  I have often wondered why noone built a custom C-Cab. I have the AMT '23 T C-Cab Delivery truck and have been envisioning just such a build.  Looking at the engine mock-up that engine fits quite nicely front to back and appears to clear the firewall; just wondering if exhaust manifolds will clear the fenders/frame rails?

I build models because I can't afford the real thing!

Great colour choice Nigel . " Ford parts Delivery " decals would look Kool I.M.O. I have a 40 COE Diecast with old Ford script on it .. "What If " I guess . The rubberband tyres & bin lid wheels might -eventually- get changed when I find some 1:43 steelies in my spares stash.....

This is a Kool build Mini. That blue looks real good on it. I've also got the AMT kit and looking at what you're doing here makes me want to jump in and build it right now. Looking forward to you next update.
