Ford Model T salvage truck - WIP - Completed
Posted by Carlo2012 on Tuesday, March 24, 2020 6:13 AM

Good day to all of you, hope everybody is in good health notwithstanding the difficult situation we are facing. As for me, i'm staying at home and playing with my favourite toys. Lately i've been working on a Ford Model T heavily modified.

The car started life as a delivery van made by ICM.

The van body have been mercilessly cut. The cabin only survived. I intend to transform it in a flat bed truck.

Before

and after

This is the raw shortened cabin.

More will follow.

There isn't much to say about the other parts of the old truck, i just built it out of the box, just took care of some weathering and dent.

Looking really good.  Waiting for updates.

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

Now let's go to the most interesting item. This is a salvage truck, so there is a crane on the truck bed. I found suitable pictures and drawings in the net. Then i started  to scratchbuild the crane. I used various plasticard sheets and profiles. Here are some steps of the build.

More pictures. The crane is completed. Some weathering improved the look..  Have to say that i am happy, the crane is not bad.

Now let's put together the truck and the crane. Also i scratchbuilt some accessories. Now the model is completed.

In future i am planning a diorama,  the truck will be the central item. Time is not a problem, we are in sanitary lockdown at home. God bless you.
