this one took some time to find the base truck (I finally had to spend a fair amount on one) and then a lot of time to complete. many steps. the decals could have turned out better, those were not as good as I hoped, just hard to see parts of them. I printed those myself.

Nice one. That looks like a 78' Ford, considering what's available that's a good starting point. What is it, Hot Wheel, Matchbox, Greenlight, etc?

looks like you got the right year of F100 to use, what is it, 1973?

yeah this was one of my more rewarding builds. everything came out as I wanted except for the semi ok decal.

good lord, how does one shorten the bed? I think I'd ruin it if I tried that.

I tend to be limited by what parts are/aren't available, and also the limitations of cost. I do pride myself on making as many parts as I can out of just cheap shit I have laying around the garage. for example the roll bars are u-nails bent to shape, with a hanger piece glued on the back as the third piece. and primed and painted.

I'm also hesitant to try methods I think may mess up my paint jobs or create problems where I can't back out of it. just trial and error really and I've pretty much taught myself. I've ruined several paint jobs and had to strip the whole car down and start over. that's always fun.

anyway, again - props to you, yours look incredible.
