Default '69 Ford F250 *Body Pannel Molds Started!!*

Man, i must be nuts! But, here we go!

Its too cold here to do anything with the hummer, so its time to work on another project. This is gonna be a scale version of my F250, I-beam suspention and all! Oh yea, and an aluminum body.


The beast in all its glory.

and for those of you who dont know what I-beam suspention is, here:

before you go "HOLY BACON! thats complex", they labeled every washer, nut, and bolt.


Cheers,
-John-

Is it going to have scale suspension travel from the beams or crazy desert truck travel? I love to see I-beam suspension aired out in a jump with all the camber change.

That's fine, I was just trying to get the rough ratio of length of I beam and lateral links ...I didn't realize they've been using them for that long. 1969??

My '72 Ford Econoline has the same setup, kingpins and all. The I beam setup looks complicated but can be farely easy to work with. Build the pieces may be a pain in the . I'll watch this because I want to make a scaler of my van.

Klowd, are you planning to replicate this suspension down to the details?

as much as i can, yes. Im also gonna have a full engine bay with a 360ci Windsor and a full interior. Its gonna take some time and alot of work, but it will be worth it in the end.


I got the frame rails drawn out to 1/10 scale.


Because this is only a one picture update, Ill give you a Narwhal i drew last week.



Cheers,
-John-

I'm very interested in seeing the twin I-Beam. Looks like it's going to be a killer build.
