1965 Ford N950

Post by miwi on Tue 31 Dec 2013, 9:19 pm

I had bought this kit year ago from Dans Model from Romania.

I had cut the hood. This will be hinged. I also changed the resin front axle with a more stiffer one from KFS









I had added  the air and fuel lines to the chassis. It is not 100% correct but I think that it give a bit live to chassis.  The engine will be next  thing that I have to detail.

There's some nice detail there mate, look forward to seeing more as you progress.

It's going to be a "kick-ass" truck when it is done i reckon.

Yes it is not a cheap kit but I think it is worth the money. Excellent quality, easy to assembly. great surface finish. I found only on air bubble on the hole kit!

No it will get Spyder all around. I'm not sure if I use 5 spoke or 6 spoke design. Also the tires are to modern. I hope that I find some old Ertl or amt tires somewhere in my parts box

Spyders and the old Ertl/Amt tyres will set it off really well.
