Ford C-600 Flatbed
Posted by kvwildhare on Monday, September 12, 2011 11:38 AM

This in-progress truck is destined for a dorama.  The truck is mocked-up at this point - nothing is glued in place yet.  The weathering is done with hairspray.

 Here's the completed interior:

.....with BB-Gun holes in the back window:

Thanks for looking............

Sergey, I used real glass (.006" microscope slide covers) stuck on a piece of clear tape, then punched in the holes with a needle.  The tape keeps the glass from shattering.

slusher, the hairspray is applied over the "rust" coat and under the color coat.  You then soften the surface with water and pick off the rusted and scratched areas with a toothpick,  I did an article on the technique in Scale Auto a few issues ago.

Awesome truck!!!  I'm doing one of these as a semi tractor to pull a car carrier.  Might have to try that weathering  technique.  What issue is the article on this in?

It looks even better now with some color on it and the wrinkled paint is perfect. I am still looking at all of the junk, I mean detail in the cab.

Put down the bed (stripwood) and built the sides, which is 1/2" scale corrugated roofing dusted with Metalizer "Aluminum" & "Stainless Steel" (spray cans) to look galvanized. The sides still need nuts & bolts:

The bed bolts where made by sharpening the tip of a 7mm mechanical pencil...

...and pressing the tip into the bed.  The "bolt heads" where then painted individually.

It looks better than poking a hole in the wood and it's cheaper than bolt-head castings....
