Default Showroom stock 90's ford F350 dually crewcab longbox!

I have started a few more builds lately, figured id show ya'll what ive been working on.
Custom 1 off 90's Ford F350 CrewCab long box dually conversion for the tamiya blackfoot body.
Heres some pics to show my progress....
So this is just getting going, basically gluing the big pieces together.

The hood scoop shaved off, and the roof patch smoothed in

Drop bed and new bed rails

after a bit of putty and sanding

drop bed almost done

body is almost done

more to come...

i seriosly considered only building it as a regular bed truck, non dually, but i have been dying to build a dually for such a long time so that got the better of me. Ill probably start a team of ford builds after this one. i thinking ill be doing a bronco next and maybe a crew cab long box non dually. Thats if i dont get my hands on a highlift F350 to convert, id like that as a crewcab long box!!

they are the tamiya rims from the semi trucks, but the tires are off of a G wagon rc from the source, they have a lower profile and alot more detail in the tire itself.

im gonna try and get some chassis work done on it this weekend so you guys can see it sitting on the wheels.

oh and just to describe what went into the dually fenders, they started out as the stepside fenders from a marui big bear. cut the wheel arch out of the big bear fender and grafted in a blackfoot wheel arch so that they would match the actual truck. I then widened the fenders 3/8's of an inch to make them the right size, basically just a bit wider than a tire itself.

all in all, about 4 hours for each fender. thats not including putty and sanding.

Looking good cloddyman. I too ended up using those tires for a project. Bringing this next to the war in the woods?

to get the tires you would have to buy the entire radioshack/source RC G Wagon. I paid 19.99 for the G wagon itself, and did a complete build on it, and the tires were leftovers. Luck should have it that they fit on the tamiya semi rims.

This is what i did with the G wagon itself.


Marmech - i might bring the body to the war in the woods for everyone to check out, im hoping i might get the chassis together through the week, maybe have a roller by then.
