Where Are We Today
Sundance RV Resort
Yuma Az.
In my last post, I wrote of a model that I had started to occupy my idle hands, it is now finished. The model is of a 1991 Ford F350 pick-up truck.

This is what it is suppose to look like.

I changed the look of the model to look like our 2015 Ford F 350 pick-up truck, which you know we affectionately call "Black Beauty".
The following pictures show the progress of the build.

Just like with my RC planes, I like to build and consider myself a good builder. It is the small detail stuff that I wish I was better at. However, building this did occupy my time when I needed something to do besides reading or watching TV. I may have to do one next winter. This model will find its place in the "Hangar" when I finish it when we get home this spring.



The Hangar

As mentioned in my last post, there is another model purchase that has been made. I will pick it up on our way home around the end of March, stay tune for that one.
Until the next time, take care and travel safe. Thanks for stopping by and feel free to leave a comment, if you wish.

  2. Believe it or not, I used to put models together when I was a kid. It kept me out of trouble for several years. Unfortunately, none of mine are left. Black Beauty is a beauty!!!

    1. Nancy, I can see you doing this. I also did it as a kid, but like you, mine are long gone. Yes we agree, Black Beauty is a beauty.

  5. It's all about the details. Great job Bill. I look forward to seeing the future project completed too. Very nice hanger you have back on the Ridge and I'm sure you'll soon have a whole area dedicated to models other than planes. Enjoy!!

    1. Thank you, the future project is on the plane side of my hobby. I will post a picture of it after I pick it up,also pictures of the construction process. The "Hangar" was built for my hobby, so there will definitely be a spot for models of both kinds.
