Thanks again fellas.

I've been trying to take it easy today and just get some ideas on how this things gonna sit. I took a few pictures of it to give me (and you) a look at it's size in comparison with some other stuff.

Here it is next to my Wagoneer body.



I think the width is gonna be perfect for what i'm going for. Check out the 1.9 tire and rim under it. Almost looks small, but very stock like.



And here it is sitting over my 57 chevy truck with axial axles and reduced Swamp Dawgs. Even those wide tires barely stick out the sides more than a centimeter.



Well, its a lot of work to make a truck this way but its so worth it. How else would i be able to get a scale 67 fargo body to play with.
Think i'll start working on the bed next

Great job, never heard of a Fargo. It was a really sharp truck. I can't wait to see it all together.

Yes it is a lot of work, but well worth it when no one else has what you have, unless they want to build one too. I'm still watching Headquake, its looking great.

Yeah, Fargo were basically the exact same trucks as the Dodges, but sold up in Canada as Fargo's for some reason. I figured doing the Fargo version would make it extra rare, and more Canadian. There's not many of these trucks left around due to the rougher winters up here.


Well, got about 12 more build hours down in the last couple days and i'm that much closer to having my very own 67 Fargo. Got quite a lot done actually. Mostly concerning the bed.

Started by cutting out a flat piece of 1/4 inch for the floor, cut out the wheel openings then used styrene to make up the wheel wells. I heated up the top piece and bent it over the side arches, then sanded the edges round and left a few dents because, when is there ever no dents in a 40 year old truck bed? Also cut a bunch of thin strips of cardstock and glued them to the floor. I painted thick wood glue over the floor to seal it all together and sanded it a bit.



Then i did the same on the inner sides and glued in a styrene lip around the top and included the six post holes and sockets. Excuse my lack of the correct words for most of these parts. Ha.

I built the inner panel of the gate too, filled in a bunch of little cracks, rough sanded and primed.



I also spent way too much time to cut the tiny F-A-R-G-O letters for the front of the truck out of some styrene. Hard but worth it. Made the front bumber out of some styrene as well and stuck it in place.



Well thats it for this update. Its getting closer. Gotta finish the tailgate and rear bumper next, then think about starting the interior. Its really looking good now i think. Here's a few more pics of it set up and sitting together finally. More soon, thanks for checking it out.
