    Default 1957 Ford F-100 Short Bed

    Hello everyone.
    I've been in love with Headquake's trucks since 2011 maybe, so i gathered myself up for this one.
    There are a lot of beautiful trucks, but my first love was this roundy guy


    It is my first ever wooden built, so every step of it is a huge skill lesson. The first thing i did is studied all the 57 ford thread that fabulous Rick built and gathered all needed materials. And began to learn the shapes of the truck. It took me some time to understand all the lines.


    The trickiest part is to make to even side pieces, but it is real fun to built. I think i got them pretty close.



    Forgot to say that i only had AR60 axles, so this truck will be slightly bigger than usual. Hope it will move.







    Also i try to film a build video, and it helps me not to rush through the procces. The chassis isn't done yet, still waiting for some parts.
    On to gluing side pieces together and the grill next
    Hope you will enjoy this built as much as i do

    Looking good! It really is much harder than Headquake and 2Beers make it look. Those guys are, I don't know, like wizards or something. But you're off to a great start! Maybe you're another one. Sorcery abounds...

    If you have wood and putty - you're bound to succeed



    Spent these days carving and gluing.
    Headlights are 3 pieces. I ve realised that its shape is possible for me only after glueing plastic on it. They turned out pretty i would say.













    I wanted the vents be functional, so made it from both wood and plastic.






    He is chubby, huh?


    Really enjoy how it is coming along, wood is a great material.

    On to glueing the grill and lower "jaw", and grind all the unnecessary edges.
    More to come.

    Default Hood is on!

    Thank you guys!

    Was some days off and broke my camera after i made the pre-alfa hood. So unfortunately i have no vids about hood making... But i've finished today final graving and on to filling small defects with putty.
    Here goes the pre-alfa hood


    As i missed with the shape of the hood, the easiest way to correct them is to glue some wood on it!




    It took me some time to figure out all the angles, but i think i got it pretty close. Little by little and it will be done.









    More to come!
