I printed the photo of the pickup,
and placed my chassis on it to see how the cab would look. 

It was a pretty close match (photo and model),
and I can cut out a pattern for making the model from the photo. 

Regards, Dave L.

Here is another possibility for the 1912 chassis,
but I am leaning towards the pickup.

I can put an interesting load in the bed.

In the meantime another Gulf pickup came,
and it will get the black fenders and wheels treatment. 

Since Ford did not offer the pickup bed on the Model T,
until long after the brass radiator was discontinued.
I am assuming that the bed here,
was offered by one of the many aftermarket companies,
and just bolted to a roadster body. 

I am still deciding on color for this model's body and bed. 

Regards, Dave L.

The Testor's cement removed the Gulf lettering in just three seconds,
and after a scrubbing with liquid detergent (Dawn),
this will be ready for the rattle can paint job. 

Fenders and wheels will be black,
and body and bed color is still undecided.

I liked the color after priming the body and bed,
so went with the gray. 

I read that early Model Ts came in a few colors,
including a gray. 

I used some white tires I had on hand,
I like them on the black wheels.

My latest Ertl Ford pickup project. 

My supply of these is about used up. 


I really enjoy turning these toys into nice models for use in Gn15 or Large Scale.

Regards, Dave L.

My collection of Model Ts has grown,
and I am trying to include many of the various versions of the car that Ford produced,
in twenty years of production. 

The "Runabout" was the least expensive and is the basis for the Ertl models. 

By 1916 the shiny radiator was discontinued and the next year it was painted black,
so the Ertl models are pre 1917. 

Regards, Dave L.

OK, now it's time to rig a slot car track on the layout,

for those to run on.

;)

I have another project ready to go,
an Ertl Ford tanker. 

As I have a tanker already in my collection I'll probably not use the tank,
and figure some other treatment for the chassis and body. 

I'll post more photos of the process than I usually do.
Thanks for following along.
