That absolutely looks like a wood bed. Very good job!

Thanks! that was the look I was aiming for...



Change of direction while waiting for parts:

So, I've scratchbuilt a fuel tank some time ago. I think it looked good enough but seemed a bit small. So I've copied the shape, enlarged it a bit and printed. That was some time ago but today picked it again to apply some paint and did something else:


see the mounts below the tank?











Now it needs the metal mounts to the chassis and the fuel cap

Pictures to big, unable to view the complete model try again. Use a file size of 518kb, is still big, and viewable .

More excellent work!
The pictures are indeed huge. With imgur links, you can add the letters m or l (lowercase L) or h before .jpg to auto resize for forums.

Resized from your Original size to 'H' is for Huge.
First one i did 'L' for Large.
H is the biggest this forum displays without screwing up the format or chopping off most of the picture
Hit Quote if you need to see the structure to add the sizing letter

Much better I can view & admire the workmanship. All these parts are printed, that is one nice tool to scratch build with.

Well done

Thanks Frizzen! much better now

Well, things are going slow...was anxious to get the metal stuff done to pass the bed to the lady who will do the tarp.











At first, I will only make the front and rear arch like the real ones but all my reference photos were from 4x4s. This long bed would need one more,atleast

The archs are 4mm stainless steel and the rest 3mm. The feet are steel, brazed to the archs.Was planning to braze everything but I'm quicker with the TIG.

That is a work of art! Welding that small takes patience and a careful hand, and the printed pieces are a great addition. Your attention to detail really shines.

thanks!

One more random detail for the 'mog










I live in a rough neighbourhood



The tailgate is almost painted and ready to be mounted. Did one of the bench seat but maybe I'll put only one and left the space left for cargo

I like the tarp frame also, building a CROSS truck for my wife. Has a tarp over the bed.

Interested in knowing what is the material? Method used building, silver solder, heat source, Tig.

Trying to decide if I do go down this road, the best method & materials to look into. Have plenty of resources, Tig, Mig, Oxy Acl, and a few bottles of map.

Wish to know the most logical, method of controlling the heat, on small gauge materials.

Those joints look good and realistic

I did this with TIG. Initial idea was to braze but brazing stainless steel is different than other metals. I'm a bit green to brazing but it was the nicest option here because I was joining 3mm to 4mm rods. TIG was the quickest option and I'm glad I don't messed up any joint. They are pretty much tacked instead of actual weld but it will do.
i wanted steel but choose stainless because I had better experience bending it

If you could, go for silver solder, better looking IMO . Maybe someday I'll redo every joint with brazing....

True stainless is best Tig welded, thank you for the input. Tack welds look just fine, being Tig welded it most likely will hold up .

Good food for thought, thanks again.

Printed a pair of improved functional tailgate hinges to be glued to the bed. They're printed in one piece, let's hope they hold
Printe



Tailgate with the hooks. Not shown, are the rubber stops(printed in TPU because scale )




First look at the tarp
