Had some issues with the first post




I got the 1911 closed cab pickup and the 1912 flatdeck. I'm building the flatdeck first.




The kit consists of a number of laser cut sheets and a box of 3-d printed parts.




I started with getting the front fenders attached to the lower body. There's some tricky bending and some fiddly attachments to this step but if you take your time and follow the instructions it turns out okay.




the underside has the frame, lower engine block and bellhousing attached. I assembled all of this as a sub-assembly before painting.




This is the sprue(?) of the 3-d parts. Darryl uses a resin 3-d printer for some excellent detail. That's a Canadian quarter that it's sitting on.





I decided to paint the cab and wheels in an oxide green. I left the wheels in the carrier card for painting and used some post its it mask off the rest.




Next the black on the lower body, fenders, hood

Nice looking kits, Glen. They look like they're challenging to build. This will be interesting to follow.

Interested to see how these will look once completed.

Making wood look like metal will be a challenge, but I'm sure you're up to it Glen....

Great pair of vehicles project Glen. Interaction Hobbies seems to be putting out some great kits continually. Being the era of those vehicles, using wood would be fitting. Looking forward to your progress.

Thanks everyone. So far I'm enjoying the challenge.
I finished up most of the painting



The cab and wheels will be green with a wood-tan deck and stakes. I'll touch up the edges as I assemble the parts.




I airbrushed the 3-d printed parts in black and then brush painted the radiator, front lamps and steering wheel center in brass.



This is how far I've gotten today. I assembled the back half of the cab, installed the seat and assembled the cab front. I'm waiting for some glue to dry before continuing.

Hi Glen,

I'm following along with your build. It's looking good. I've been wondering how these kits are to build; especially now that Jordan is no longer.

Glen,
I will also be following this construction. It is always a treat to see what you build. Great start so far.

Glen,
You're doing a nice job on this kit. I'm following along with great interest.

It's only make-believe

Thanks for sharing this build. Always interested to see what others are doing with products that might be applicable to my era. However with over 60 Jordan vehicles yet to build, and an absence of motivation to build them, I donít think I will be acquiring any of these in my lifetime. Iím interested in your airbrushing of that Acrylic paint. What can you say about that?

Thanks everyone.
Jeff, I do find some similarities to jordans.

I don't know if Darryl has plans to up-size these kits but he has stuck his toe in the O scale market with up sizing the vintage travel trailer

Denny, I could devote a whole thread on airbrushing acrylics. But I think you were referring to the bottle of green artists acrylic on the workbench? I thinned it with some Testors acrylic airbrush thinner and sprayed it with my badger 200 internal mix brush.
