Default 1966 Ford Bronco 1/6 scale build

Starting the process of building a body for the 1/6 chassis.

I do not choose American brands for my builds, it happens accidentally.
I would like to build some Russian truck for you guys, but I see them every day, and to be honest they are not so beautiful to replicate.

This is the first generation Ford Bronco.
Not extended, not even double cab this time, it should be big enough due to the scale.
It may look similar, but 1/6 scale is really large!

What's the over-all body length going to be ?
And what wheel base ?

I couldn't think of a better body to replicate as that's one of my favorites.

Wish I had your patience and Styrene cutting/forming skills.

Going to look swell and I look forward to seeing you bring it to life

Thanks!
Body length is going to be 647 mm (25,5 inches) from bumper to bumper and wheelbase 390 mm (15,4 inches).

The first fender that I built has some bends and a few cracks, but I kept it, the second not so much.
Styrene fenders look cleaner, but foil has more potential to make something new, the fenders are also much lighter.

Awesome start and excellent work. I am far from a Furd guy but the Early Bronco is one sweet 4x4. Wish more MFG's made them. Look forward to more body work.

Thanks guys!

Short break right after the start.

It was always kind of a mystery for me. When I watch someone else's video, I always wonder how it was filmed.
I want to share this, it might be helpful if you make your own videos or just wondering.

OMG! This is gonna be epic. A 1/6 scale Early Bronco...fantastic! Will you be making the rear fenders stock or cut out for the off-road look. Can't wait to see this thing.

Those are some great looking fenders!

I have to say you make me so damn nervous watching you cut the styrene towards yourself.

Thank you to everyone, glad that you are interested!
I would like to make classic rear fenders if they fit the wheels.

Moving forward with styrene.

Awesome job. Going to be a shame to dent them but the dents will provide character as well. Look forward to when you do more.

Hood next? Tailgate?

Doing the roof, A/B/C pillars separate?

Aluminum cage Too I hope.

Assembling the hood from the left and right parts, filling the shape with epoxy putty.












Foil revival.
