    So I did some cleanup on this truck be very careful trimming it from it's sprue base and the wheel sprue base.

    One thing I noted is check the axle length as you may need to trim a little off the brass axle I did and it's no big deal to me.

    I would rather cut than be short.

    Also when trimming the tires from their sprue be careful as the from tires have axle shoulder nubs to help hold on the tires I will still use a touch of acc glue so as not go lose the tires..

    Now it's off to the soap container to remove any mold release after I do some light sanding and cleanup on it.

    Overall very pleased with having a rare truck for my layout now on to figure out what color's to paint it.

    Here's the updated pics in no particular order as my camera loads them it's way.

    This will be a slow build want it right the first time TTFN

    So these came in the mail today will be making two of them into mow trucks the other two into pov's.

    The tailgates actually work so this should add a little into the mix of what these trucks will be up to.

    Will start getting these ready for the paint shop when I primer my Diamond T and repaint the trailer fairly soon.

    Okay got the F100's apart.

    Watch very carefully taking the glass out as the cab glass is durable but also fragile.

    I broke one but that truck will have one side window 3/4's of the way down the other 1/2 way down +/-

    Also be careful not to lose the headlight lenses don't ask me how I know 8^) .

    Got lucky and found both headlights.

    On to the pics as it gets closer to paint time

    Looks good but to new for me as the headlights at least date it to 1984-5

    Nice looking truck thoughstill waiting for a 1970's W900A model KW.

    Can see that one hauling a cattle wagon or skateboard maybe a thermos bottle.
