53 F100 ideas please
Posted by Anonymous on Friday, January 23, 2004 5:20 PM
I've recently been given a few kits by a friend of mine who tried his hand at models which left me stripping all of them of orange peeled paint jobs. I plan to biuld most stock because most are customs anyhow like the Roth Outlaw and so on, but the only one I can't figure on what to do with is the AMT 53 F100.
I flat out of ideas so anything thrown at me would be appreciated, the only mod so far is a '69 Camaro front susp. to lower it a bit. Thanks everyone Question

I guess this is the flip nose kit. If it is, this is almost the same kit that I am currently working on. The kit that I have is a Revell 56 Ford F-100. I am chopping the top, tubbing the bed out, hinging the doors, etc. The goal is to make it into a pro modified truck. I am using the chassis from a Revell pontiac pro street j-2000 (Rick Dobbertins). I have been working on this for about 2 weeks progress is good so far.The top is chopped, bed is tubbed, and I have figured out how to attach the chassis.

How about a tow vehicle? The edges of the purple aren't really ragged, the quality of my photo site isn't real good.

You could cut the top and do a wild paint design.

If you can't buy it just build it

I just did an F-100 Pickup that is posted in this section just a few posts down from this one. Check that out, just another idea for yours.

Certainly not to everyone's taste, but the chopped, channeled, slammed, big-wheel look, with the front fenders re-shaped, works for me.

Plan your work, work your plan.

Measure twice, post once.

You know fellas, this guy who is now just "Anonymous" posted this nine years ago. It's awesome that people on this forum are so helpful, but I think it's a given that after all this time, since he's no longer a member here, he's not going to see any of your suggestions. Whistling

I'm not a fan of big wheels, but this is prettty nice!

And for a more traditional look, just change out the wheels and tires. Note that they are both close to the same color and stance, but what a difference the rolling stock makes. Just make sure the front end is in the weeds! Big Smile
