Latest kit bash WIP 9-26 pics.
Posted by TnT on Tuesday, September 19, 2017 4:50 PM

Well my dad had a 72 step side around 77 or 78. Going through my mess of a basement i seen these two sitting and thought if i could find some wagon wheel rims i might be able to build the old mans truck. Looking through a box of glue bombs i found the vantom with unpainted wagon wheels. Now if i could find a 300 6 cylinder and a pair of stacks i would be in business. Well i went ahead and started. It was an old water company truck with black and orange paint. He sanded and primed it. It had mudders on the back and regular tires on the front. But this is where i am at.

Lol. I did have a lot of thought over chopping it up. But i thought i could build a wood bed or chop up the f100 bed to fit snug to the body. Just section the middle a bit.

The stepside looks cool. Nice conversion.

If you are stuck on a 300 six, I'm not aware of one in scale. I think a couple inline six car engines (250?) are available, though.

Thanks spencer. A little touch up to do on the grill then dull coat it. As far as remember they did not have chrome grills.

So i found a pic with a bit of the truck in it. I had chopped up a step bumper to fit, but it did not have one. The fenders were wrong. Found a old glue bomb basket case 55 or so that had the right fenders and the right bumper and mounts. They fenders are swimming in aP.P. bath. I deleted the body trim and rocker panel trim. Now to find the pic of the front half to see the mirrors. The tailights might be an issue.

Good job so far. Their is a Moebius \Model King 1969 F-100 that has a 250 straight 6 in it.  The truck is a turquoise blue on the box.
