Starting a couple new projects. Darryl at Interaction Hobbies came out with a number of Model T truck kits and I had to get a couple of them

Looks great, Glen. Very impressive work.

slimrails Posted - 06/09/2019 : 07:34:04 AM
Terrific job, Glen.
Michael Hohn Posted - 06/08/2019 : 7:26:22 PM
Lots of character. What a nice kit!
desertdrover Posted - 06/08/2019 : 7:25:02 PM
Another outstanding model completed. That is one sharp looking vehicle.
Glen Haasdyk Posted - 06/08/2019 : 7:13:45 PM
Thank you.
I finished up the second truck last night.

This truck pretty much went together like the first. Everything fit together well. I gave the brass radiator an A&I wash to tone it down a bit and left the canvas roof a bit more tattered.

Michael Hohn Posted - 06/03/2019 : 10:04:43 PM
Thatís going to be a spiffy model when youíre finished. The weatherbeaten appearance is well done.

desertdrover Posted - 06/03/2019 : 09:53:50 AM
That is some Intricate work going on there. Your building is fantastic looking Glen.
Glen Haasdyk Posted - 06/02/2019 : 8:17:37 PM
Thanks Bob.
I've been a bit distracted over the past week due to other projects and a trip to Calgary. I have found some time to continue with the closed-cab truck

I assembled the cab/truck bed and glued it to the fenders. After I glued the roof onto the cab a heard a rattling and discovered that the steering wheel had become unglued. I can't re-open the cab so I'll just have to live with it. n the other hand the interior is so small, you can't even see it.

I didn't paint the inside of the truck be yet, except for he gray primer. I'll be working on weathering that up a bit later.

very effective grain simulation.

Glen Haasdyk Posted - 05/26/2019 : 11:31:22 PM
I have the four walls of the cab assembled and ready to be put together.

I added the window glass (also laser cut). I still have to add the steering wheel to the front wall.
Glen Haasdyk Posted - 05/26/2019 : 6:19:11 PM
Thanks everyone. I just finished most of the painting of the closed cab truck

I'm going with basic black on this one, but weathered. On the parts that would be metal (fenders, chassis, hood) I first airbrushed in Model master Rust, followed by flat black. On the parts that would be wood, like the cab and box, I painted them in a gray primer, then also painted them in black.

Then I took my Fiberglass eraser brush and carefully scratched the black away, letting the under-color show through. This shows some wood grain and a worn paint look.

I also did this with the metal parts, showing rust coming through the paint.

That T looks good, Glen.

Thanks for introducing us to these models.
Michael Hohn Posted - 05/20/2019 : 10:21:47 PM

The Model T is very nicely done. Your modeling is like an assembly line.

Philip Posted - 05/20/2019 : 9:19:45 PM
Wow.. Turned out nice!

Glen Haasdyk Posted - 05/20/2019 : 5:37:01 PM
Thanks everyone.
Denny, Now that I have built Both Jordans and these I'd have to say that they are pretty similar in construction. Both are basically flat parts to be built into 3-d constructs. As I said the most difficult part was forming the fenders to fit on the main body but after I did the first, the second was pretty easy. (yes I've gotten that far on that one) The instructions were pretty good as well and Darryl has posted a video of him building one of these with some extra tips. I didn't find the parts any thicker than a Jordan.
I would like to mention that if you are comparing Jordans to these, make sure you compare a Model T to a Model T and not a Model A of newer vehicle. Model T's are pretty square compared to a newer model, which makes this construction a bit more practical. If one was to make a kit of a Model A, I would think the fenders would have to be 3-d printed as well to achieve the compound curves in them
Overall I really enjoyed building the kit and have already gotten parts of the second closed-cab pickup ready for paint.
