Tremendous Chris. Love the detail including the brake and clutch pedals coming through the floorboard.

Thanks Bob. A few engine compartment details will purposely be omitted because space is so "tight."  This cab-over-engine design leaves very little room under the hood.

@jack-dodds Thanks Jack. Glad you like all this... but, like 1:1 bodywork, it's alot of labor! 😣 😣

Ahhhh!  The sanding stage!  My left arm (non-sanding) looks like Pee Wee Herman's.  But my right arm (sanding!) looks like Arnold Schwarzenegger's!  Sanding and sanding and sanding and sanding and sanding and sanding....

9-25 UPDATE PART 1:  I was able to FINALLY (..it took 5 years!) put color on this old truck and get this 1/18 1956 Ford COE F750 body on to her frame for the last time. Still a "mini-ton" of body detail to add such as, chrome trim & emblems, mirrors, running lights, skid pads, decals, small paint touch-ups, etc.. etc..  .... THEN TRAILER WORK will resume after that, but there's light at the end of the tunnel. 😉 

Here's a "quick 30"

@marty-johnson LoL! I said the same thing during assembly...it took quite a while to line up everything. Regardless the planning and "well thought out" execution/engineering there's always something that comes up. This effort was no exception. 🙄 🙄

@chris Wow...what a fantastic job!  To be honest I wouldn't have gone with those colors BUT now that I see them on the finished truck I realize I was wrong.....I think it looks awesome.
