Wip Ford pickup Revell 1/25 scale.I wanted to make different custom ....
Here's my version I hope you understand my translation. ;-)
First step chop top 2mm. Keeping the rear window to keep a fluid line, I
often noticed a chop top on the rear window and really, it's too small ...
I add the card to plastic 2mm above the roof. I then regrooved the
entourage of the glass with my dremel gutters redone in plastic card. I
sanded all the bodywork, walking legs, wings front and rear tipper, side
gates, a large smoothing!
I then glued all the component parts of the hood. it was from that moment
that I "cut" part of the body so that the chopsticks come to the height of
I started to sculpt my wings before adding the evergrenn. My idea down the
skirt, remove the brackets and bumper and lower grille angled
I appeal to the dump, which was stuck to the car by removing spaces. I
wanted it to be wood (mahogany model ship) and head exposed screws (pin).
First stage removal of plastic, creating welcoming wood beams which, by the
way you see the hole for future wheels. Later I added the plastic card to
redo the panels of the bucket.

The hue and a mixture of pearl gold metallic red and purple pearl. If you
look at my
All was polyurethane varnish, no sanding no polishing was necessary. A
little bare-metal, tires modelhaus wheels (Ford 49). I used the dog dish of
37. The headlights were painted the body color, yellow bulb. For tail
lights, I removed the original media, and I create queue iron. Juice in the
shell, etc. ... feel free to post questions, and complete the WIP on my
fotki. plate holder in the bucket and the frame.
