Baywatch TV Series Ford Ranger Splash
Posted by spencer1984 on Friday, June 30, 2017 9:45 AM

The earliest continuous issue of Scale Auto Enthusiast I have is the February '95 issue with the Ranger Splash review/build by Tim Boyd, which came in quite handy for this build.

AMT's '93 Ranger Splash kit with the optional lift blocks, wheels from the promo, parts box tires, the surf board from AMT's '41 Ford Woody, light bar from the Ecto-1A, and scratchbuilt rack & toolbox. The rescue cans are modified LEGO parts, which needed new handles but were pretty close to the right size and shape. The decals and license plates were drawn up in Illustrator and printed onto clear stock, with the exception of the "Ford" badges that I got through eBay. Not a show-winner by any stretch, but still a fun little project.

Any comments/criticisms are welcome!

That's looks cool, always cool to have something different in the collection.

Have that kit in the stash, thinking of making a roadside service truck out of it.

Want something done right, you got to do it yourself.

Thanks, guys! mclovin, a few of the parts like the front suspension arms and bumpers can be fiddly to attach but no real "problem" areas. Also be careful lining up the cab and box to the chassis, but again it's more "requires patience" than "doesn't fit."
