Gordon the 1940 Ford Delivery Van

Post by min16i on Sun 07 Jun 2015, 12:28 pm

Alright you lot have talked me into it.

Here's my first WIP so be gentle Laughing

This is Gordon the 1940 Ford.

Why Gordon?

Well it's an AMT kit so when I opened it the first thing I thought was "Flash Ahh Ah"

I'm thinking he is a Coca Cola Delivery Van.

Not a stocker, wide steelies, probably not the flat head but I'll build it to see which I prefer when the glue it in part comes.

I've started sorting out the flash, sink holes, and pin marks.

I must say that I am in awe of you folk who build AMT all the time, need a big ticker to do the prep work before you can start modeling Very Happy

Here's a quick pic of the started V8.

Anyhoo that's a start, I'll try to keep up with the pics.

Pics showing here no probs. Not a fan of the 40 fords but I do like the vans / delivery body style.

Looks good so far.

Silly humour from a silly man.

You want flash?  Try the Revell/Monogram '53 Delivery.

I think I can feel an update coming on Shocked

Got the day off tomorrow, got to have a look at a water pump for a mate and then into the model zone.

I'll take some happy snaps to let you all know what I've been up to, not huge volumes but at least I'm having a bit of a go.

Here it is... the update Very Happy

Got the body in it's first coat of primmer, using Alclad grey for the first time, quite impressed, came out of the gun really well.
Here's a pic with a Mini waiting for it's turn. The Mini is going to be a 1/24 copy of the one in the shed if I ever get either finished.

Next up is the custom exhaust, can't have a V8 with a pea shooter now can we...

 photo IMG_2392_zpsqpyyybtp.jpg

First time with plug boots, not too bad, a bit fiddly.
Going to do away with the steel rod axle, after all it is for static display.
got the headers painted just need to line every thing up and chop them.

Engine sitting in the chassis.

 photo IMG_2388_zpsavvttyj6.jpg

Wheels with valve stems, still need painting and weathering.

And finally a random collection of bits...

What another update...

I'm a bit proud of the load bed for the old girl so I thought I'd share it.

Thanks for all of the positive comments.

A question for those far wiser than me...

Would the underside of the body be all one colour, say semi gloss black or would the different components be a mixture of colours?

Did they paint the whole floor black?

Looks great, that wood floor looks neato.  As for the undercarriage, I like to do mine something like this:



The brownish colour is red oxide primer, then I airbrush a flat black onto areas that would have sound deadener from factory, like wheel wells, driveline tunnels etc.

Thanks Mate,

That's where I was headed.

Once I find some batteries for the camera I'll stick up a couple of pics.

I promise I did take some pics, I just have to take a brief moment to post them Very Happy

I've been in the shed cutting the floor out of my Mini, not in the hobby room cutting up styrene.

Just need to find a happy balance.

Then this week is Origin 3 plus the Ashes start, might be able to do a bit whilst watching the cricket.

Okey Dokey,

Here's how the underbody is looking.





Second pic has drive shaft and rear axle in place.

I'll give it a bit of a muddy up once the engine goes in.

Next installment...

Glued the donk in...

Just need to do a bit of fettling to get the gap and alignment right.

Thanks Guys,

I've been revisiting Shawns XE thread and it's inspired a bit of creativity and inventiveness.

Ordered some paint for the body so hopefully I might get to throwing some paint at the big girl.
