    Default my vehicle builds

    so getting ready to build an N scale Truck & trailer for my layout so this will be my vehicle thread.

    First truck up will be a 50's-60's-70's era Diamond T by a new company called Royalemodels.com after getting this tuck from them i'm pretty impressed I does need little clean up but nothing major.

    the trailer will be a trainworx flatbed with the bulkhead removed see proto photo



    so that's the real deal and here is the model

    So after trimming very carefully I started to get to work on this truck still need to sand the base nubs where I trimmed it from the frame.

    Also be careful with the tires as there are nubs for the axle on the back of the front wheels.

    Also check your axle length as you might need to trim it as I did to get the tires in their correct position no big deal as I would rather trim than add a longer axle.

    Overall after sanding I'm impressed with this truck being resin it'll take a little bit of work but it's worth it to have a rare truck on my layout will be buying more from

    Royalemodels.com

    The following pics are hopefully in order just depends on my phone.

    So while I'm taking my time getting the truck ready for paint these arrived today an already getting them ready for primer and paint as my Diamond T is getting closer to primer.

    2 of the 4 will become mow trucks and the other two will become pov's.

    These are neat as the tailgates actually work so they can be posed in many ways.

    Are you going to disassemble the F100's to paint the interior? I will be interested to see how it is done. They are a nice model but seem delicate.
    Cheers.

    @Maurice

    Took the F100's apart fairly easy atlas glued the seat, rear bumper, and dash steering wheel on the frame.

    The cab, bed, tailgate, are separate parts from each other.

    Now the glass is a weird piece you must be careful as I accidentally broke one into 4 pieces but still usable.

    Also carefully remove the headlight lenses so you don't get a magnifying glass and down on your hands and knees to find said lenses.

    I got lucky.

    after that it's fairly easy to work on thinking I may have one window half down the other 3/4 ways down.

    Again the glass is the hardest part use caution started by prying the side part of the glass inwards on each side then gently figured how it was supposed to come out.

    Hope this helps see if below.
