Default 1955 Ford F100 Trekker

Hey guys. I just finished this project and thought I'd drop it here. This is a 1/24 scale Monogram model kit on a Fungi leaf spring chassis. It has the Preditor 90 motor and Hytech servo as well as all the Hot Racing metal goodies.
The wheels are Gearheads and the tires Micky Thompson claws.
Axles, tranny, and electronics are all Trekker.
The LEDs are micro Xmas lights running on three button cells under the hood. The "radiator cap" is a strong magnet that pairs with another on the bottom of the hood holding it in place.

Due to Photobucket being jerks, all the pics are moved to Reply number eight.

Here's a few details like a scratch built strap and buckle holding the fuel can.
And an axe for the rough stuff.
Driver and navigator figures. Those five point seat belts are also scratch built.

The winch is also from Jim Frye.

The shafts of the mirrors were removed and replaced with a flexible material my wife uses to make bracelets. This way they bend and snap back instead of snapping off.

Great looking truck. I'm loving the details! I really like the idea for the mirrors, very ingenious.
