Wow

That is for sure some attention to detail. Although I'll give them a -1 for the Ford not having rusted out wheel wells.

After seeing that it has freaking interior I take back my -1 for rust. Apparently the truck owner took very good care of his truck, didn't live in Michigan, or just had it repainted.

That's some seriously good work. You could have convinced me it was a real truck if you didn't include a couple of the pics.

I didn't read the build thread, but I'd assume this is why he used a Ford:

Yes allot of people use those Hilift body's for there scale builds. Just wish i had the talent to build something that cool !

Also seen a few were they take two body's and build a crewcab. I will see if i can find some pics.

Some of those pictures are scale, but some are real 1:1 fullsized. Observe:



The guy in the baseball hat, standing next to the van/SUV, with the yard pole lights at his head height ~ same height as cab of pull truck.

There are a couple others that you have to really study, but he definitely did a good job with making his scale model look exactly like his real unit.

Observe house in the left background: unless he made a diorama of his whole neighborhood, the grass and asphalt don't look like his living room carpet.

There isn't a full size version. The truck was totally scratch built with no full size for comparison. The picture is deceiving due to angle at which the picture was taken !


Same driveway and house in background as the picture you said was fake. Same Just a different angle ! If that is a real truck then this guy needs to seriously mow his grass !!
