Default Tamiya Ford F150 Body Upgrades

When I was a kid, my friend rebuilt his Blackfoot. He shaved off all the "Ford" script from the hood and tail gate for that "custom" look. Then he made a custom grille out of styrene to look like it had an aftermarket insert. Truck looked cool. A few months later he bought the Super Blackfoot. Weirdly, he was upset that the truck didnt have the ford script and had a grille just like the one he made on the old blackfoot. I guess the grass is always greener somewhere else...

Oh well, in the mean time, I made these:











Sprue is there for alignment and should be cut off after glue sets for lettering placement. The sprues are fragile but I had to make them thin as the printing gets exponentially more costly with a thicker print. The side emblems are on a 0.3mm pad that will allow them to be painted and places after the body is decaled to fill in those annoying holes left by the decals to normally go around the original molded lettering. They are available here:

Make sure to select the "print it anyway" check box if prompted in the line item when checking out. If you are not prompted then ignore me.

I have a few other things planned for my Super Blackfoot shells so i'll keep you posted.

I am sure you have seen the light kit:






All those bits are in my shop here:

There is a section called Blackfoot where everything resides. Hope you like!
