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
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.
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.
