Argh , was reading about truck show in the vintage truck mag . Might come up for a look see .
Place some balsa runners between chassis and tray it will look like real wood when you paint it and its easy to work to conform to the chassis .

will be looking closely at it on the weekend Sad ,Silverfox was here last night picking up some new kits we just gotten from the USA Smile ,showed him the COE, Shocked he said it can be fixed,going to be a pain as it will have to be painted dark green then red again Rolling Eyes just knew something was going to happen sooner or later,I have the worst luck at building models of late, Rolling Eyes think something is telling me to give away model building Rolling Eyes

Hi Allan, I cant afford to buy an Opel Blitz just to rob the chassis. I am going to have a go at scratch building one.
What are you going to use for the engine and trans, the F7 & F8 had the big 337 engine that was also fitted into the 52 Lincoln.

I am trying to locate a Dencon 337 ford engine, but he seems to have gone out of business.
