Hope you like this one.

I wanted this to convey the story of a bloke, finding his dream machine, and then towing it half way across the country to bring it home.





The Ford Ranger is from AMT(8944). It is the 1993 model 4 x 2. It was built out of the box, with the rear suspension modified to give the impression of added weight from the trailer and the load of spares in the back. The spares came from the left over parts from the 1940’s Ford and from the spares box.


The 1940 Ford and trailer originally came in a kit together with an 1953 model F100.

The trailer was rebuilt using evergreen plastic and wheels off an old WRX Rally car. The trailer was painted blue and decals were put all over it to give it that look of” being around for some time”. Numerous scratches and chips were done along with some dry brushing.

The 1940 Ford came with moulded dents and broken glass. The kit was made with the door and fender left off . The interior had the seat put in with tissue paper being put on the seats to recreate the fabric. The finish was created by putting down different layers of blue and black paint . It was then sanded back to show the rub throughs and give it that aged appearance.


The Ford was glued to the trailer, with some chain added and attached to the trailer.



Painting and Weathering


Both the Ranger and trailer then received a dusting of Tamiya Buff, Deck Tan and Flat Brown to give the impression of a long drive through all types of road conditions.
