1956 Ford Pickup Pro Street
Posted by Olezippi on Thursday, December 30, 2021 6:18 AM

Just finished this a couple days ago.  It is the Revell 1956 Ford FD-100 Pickup. Rearend was narrowed and lowered.  Rear control arms and shock towers were moved to the inside of the chassis.  Inner wheel wells and bed were cut to accomadate the Big slicks.  The wheel tubs were made out of pill bottles.  Paint is Rust-Oleum flat white primer then clear coated with Tamiya Clear Pearl and polished with Novus 2.

This turned out great!  I've seen so many of these built trucks on Youtube and yours id right up there with the best of them.  The wider wheels/tires on the rear make it look so cool!

Really nicely done. I like the wires and the details from the engine. Nice idea with the pill bottles too. The pearly white also looks nice, it's not too distracting.

If only I could show my models to my friends...

That looks pretty wicked!  Love the tubbed rear and the big fatties back there.  What does she run in the 1320 Wink

Thanks,

John
