1950 Chevy Panel truck

Post by allan on Wed 05 Mar 2014, 4:20 pm

Just putting this one up its a new resin body that I just picked up, Got it from Steve at star models its a Hendrix 1950 Chevy panel truck, you need a AMT (6437) 1950 Chevy 3100 pick up truck its green on the box art or you can use the AMT Texaco 1950 chevy 3100 pickup truck. Both kits will build it up as a stock panel truck.

Don't know when I will get around to building this one as yet, Just thought some might like to see this one.Oh hqmon has done a RHD dash for the pickup. Grey bonnet is from kit (6437)

Hmmm does not look like it would take much to make an 48-215 / FJ out of that.

Didnt someone on here start making a mold for the FJ ... ????

Checkmate was working on one.
I suspect he's a little busy at the moment as it's only 6 weeks or so until the Tumut show.

Looks great Al, love the vans/panels.

Yeah I've done the FJ panel van, it's moulded just working on a better chassis for it.

In technical terms it wouldn't be a 48-215, 215 is a standard sedan and they didn't make vans in 48. The first van was in the FJ series and was coded 2104. Wink

I'm just working on improving the moulds for the FJ and doing a better chassis so it's easy to work with. (more like a plastic kit for fit and finish)

They did make a 48-215 van only 13 they came out in 1953 just before the FJ which came out in march, you see a lot of FJ vans with 48-215 front ends on them.

It cant be a 48-215, 48 is the year it was made 215 is standard sedan, 225 is special sedan, 2104 is van, 2106 is ute. If it's a 1953 van it's a 53-2104.

big bad kustom, Only one thing the rear floor panel is thin and needs to be put in hot water to straighten it out, over all its a nice clean body. still thinking on what to do with it.
