Default ext, cab 95 f-350

here are a couple pics of my 4 door ford that i just started. i cut the styrene for the hood and for the back windows. i don't have any styrene bond so i had to order some. next i am going to get the drop bed done. i am up in the air as to if i should cut the box off and seperate it from the cab or just keep it connected. i am also planning on making a toolbox for the back. i need to get a king blackfoot grill for it cause this one is horrible looking. i am also contemplating on going with the rc4wd white oem steel wheels. i have alot of sanding to do on the roof and this will be only worked on when i get a chance with my daughter bouncing off the walls all the time lol. i dunno if i am going leaf suspension or 4 link yet. i have axial axles and transmission that are going in it. any feedback is welcome. i am also painting the body black.

thanks, it has a long ways to go but i am thinking bout throwing it on my scx chassis that i already made custom links for. then i am going to either make or get a leaf sprung chassis for my f-350 body. i have my dad's car trailer outside right now and i pretty well much have everything except tires and wheels to make a trailer. i will then use my f-350 to tow the 92 4 door. i even have it figured out how i am going to make a working screw jack on it.

Separate the bed! Then you can get that cool chassis flex:



Also, you can take the extreme grill, cut out the center and make a radiator core for it. if you like, instead of trying to locate King grille:

thanks for the replies guys, lol didn't know my little truck would catch the eye of the 4-door kings and then pants has to show off his mad skills and post pics. and i agree that i will seperate the bed and cab. then i will spend time on the cab and finish that and then work on the bed. i like the idea of doing a floorpan like you did pants. also you must have made the bed for the red blackfoot.

Here's my build thread: http://www.scale4x4rc.org/forums/sho...ight=blackfoot

Here are all the pics on their own:
http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v5...o/BlackfootV2/

there's no trick to making the cab back. Styrene is relatively cheap and if you mess up you can just make another one. I make lots of mistakes on this stuff.
Also look at lots of google images or real trucks to figure out what its supposed to look like. I have a whole file of f150 truck pictures, including ones of just frames, cabs only no beds, etc.

cut styrene and glue into place:


sand gently:


The drop bed took a bit of work but it wasnt hard really-just took patience and time.


The biggest reason I did my build was to get the chassis flex!




Yours is off to a great start. Work slowly and methodically. Be patient and don't get discouraged if it doesnt go right the first time. Just keep at it. I don't really have any special skills except maybe learning from my mistakes, lol.

i agree with you guys, i am going to go with leaf springs from my old highlift and have some rc4wd white scale shocks in 80 and 90 mm laying around. also i think i might pull off the t-rex 60's off my other truck or buy another set. i like the idea of going for just an old redneck 1 ton ford that is jacked up.

http://s1096.photobucket.com/albums/...20door%20ford/


here are some pics of my update on the ford. i bent and welded up my own frame. i wanted to go with suttle bends like a real 1:1 frame, i didn't need to go extreme beings it will be leaf sprung and won't have the greatest articulation. the frame bending went pretty well except in the very front i started bending before it was hot enough and i kinked it a little so i welded it in and grinded it down. i am thinking in the future ditching the axial axles and getting rc4wd axles so it looks like i have dana 60's. don't mind the body work so far i am in the process of sanding everything down and starting over. i might go with some mild lift blocks under the leaf springs to give it a more jacked up look cause i want to keep the body as close to the frame as possible. also made jigs today for the axles which should make things easier. i am going to weld shock mounts in the front and i am going to angle the rear shocks just like the 1:1's and and then i can keep the box as close to the frame as possible. suprisingly bending and welding up the frame was pretty easy. any comments welcome. oh and i did get the styrene pretty close to fill in the back windows at least. after i get the roof and hood done then the rest should be pretty easy.

Awesome looking truck and frame looks like it fits like a glove.

Glad to see you have photobucket. You can post the pics directly here by placing your cursor over the pic till you get a drop down below it. Then click the "IMG" box and it will copy it, then place your cursor in your post where ever you want it, and paste it. It will only show the link until you preview and submit. Then the pics will show up in your thread. Just thought I'd help.
