F350 flatbed

Post by cobra98 on Sun 28 Mar 2010, 11:26 am

Hi fellas, came across an old ford cab in the parts box & decided to give it a go.
This is my first attempt at this much scratch-building but,it's getting there.
So far,I've got the bed,stacks,mudflaps,& fuel tanks roughed out...still a ways to go.

I like what you have done with the stacks. Great looking tray too.
The mud flaps look like real rubber.

Guys!... I'm gettin' a little to old for this time warp thing!
This topic started out by "Cobra 98" on 28th March 2010.
Last official post on this topic was by "Mustang 67"... May 2010.
Next posts on this topic by Phil & Allan 22-23 October 2014.
If my calculations are correct (I were not good at sums at skool) Rolling Eyes
that's around 4 1/2 years between posting comment on this build?
What gives?.... Or should I "S.T.F.U", and get back to my model
 bench!... Very Happy
