Update on my Red F100 snake truck model

Postby Big Bopper Bart » Mon Jan 11, 2010 11:16 pm

Well...here she is,based off a reissue 1979 For F350 4x4 model I got off eGay years ago. I shortened the bed and modded the bed with a dremel and alooot of body putty.The body is nearly done and is almost ready for its first coat of flat red.The tow boom is just sitting there for mock up and will be shortened and modded like in the movie. Lemme know what y'all think?

Looks good so far. Will you be converting the square headlights to round?

Thanks Zarana,Yes I will be,but its gonna be a pain in the ass to make a front end for it. I wish I could find the "Boonie Boss" model as it has the 73-77 style front nd that closely matches the 70-72 F series front end that was on the orig. truck from the movie.

Lookin' good, Bart! It's going to be very cool to have another red F100 around!

What parts do you need from the Boonie Boss? Let me know.
