Default 1961 Dodge D100

This is the 1961 Dodge D100.

1/6 scale.



What a great decade that has given us so many wonderful cars and trucks.


This time I'm modeling in Blender. It provides a much more stable working process and it's free.









I printed the left part from white polyamide, it's very light, it practically does not weigh anything.
The right side is printed from a glass-filled polyamide, it weighs a bit more and is very durable.

The parts have no traces of supporting material. Polyamide printing reproduces complex geometry more easily and provides large sizes of the model.



The cab is separated on parts to notice the inaccuracies that I might make when modeling and to be able to replace if I break it.

I printed the frame for the cab, and I'm going to build entire body of styrene.

Incredible work! I can't get the hang of Blender. If AutoCAD Fusion 360 is available in your country you might want to give it a try. It's free for hobbyists here in the US.

What type of printer do you own? The results are incredible!

Thanks!

Blender looks familiar to me, I'm glad I switched to it. I did not test AutoCAD, it just did not happen, maybe I should.

I do not own a printer, always printed in a store, I think this way gives a better result.
Polyamide printing requires a huge printer, it's like a machine and cost a fortune.

Love these early trucks, almost owned a sweet D100 long-bed with slant six engine back when. Great modelling and planning to make it bolt together, interchangeable/replaceable parts. Did you print in two different materials to test the durability?

Ah man. You stepped it up a few notches. Next we will see a Steel or Aluminum frame instead of wood.

Beyond excellent work so far. Wish i had the brain and patience for software drawings. Will watch this one just like the Bronco.

I was looking at some pictures of the '61 Dodge, are you going to make the bed a "slabside" or "stepside"? Power Wagon 4x4 or 2WD?

Thank you!

I printed parts in two different stores and from different materials, I did not plan it, but variety leads to more opportunities, so I can compare the durability of the materials.
I'm going to build an original bed (not stepside). Originally the truck is 2WD, but I'm going to make it 4WD.

I think I should clarify this aspect. You might be wondering if you can get the printed parts. I would like to upload the files, but there is a reason to not to do it. It's not a finished product. Since I only printed the frame for the cabin, it requires A LOT of future work, otherwise, it will only lead to disappointment. If you still have enthusiasm, I should say that I prepared it for a printer that works with polyamide, which is quite expensive. The printing of these parts cost me about $ 600.


Start filling the cab. Using komacel and Evergreen styrene. 1,5-4 mm sheets.

Amazing detail. I have a 69 Sweptline, your reproduction is excellent. looking forward to the completion. Glad your doing a wide bed? Really gives the true Sweptline.

Awesome scale! Nice to see more 1/6 scale projects coming to life.

That's some incredible skills, getting the back window and firewall done correctly. Nice workmanship.
