Lindberg Ford F150 4x4 Model Kit

Lindberg Ford F150 4x4 pickup truck model kit.

This truck represents the pickup truck generation from 1997 to 2013. They were all pretty much the same with very minor cosmetic differences.

The kit builds well with just a few annoyances.

The interior is very tight when inserting into the cab. The dash has to go over a lip, while the back of the interior tub has to squeeze into the location against the back window.

It's tricky and took several attempts. There is no sloppy fit here like what is common onother model kits you might be used to. Tolerences are tight.

In the end, the rear window came loose at the top point but it isn't visible unless you get down low and look. So I chose not to make another (fourth) attempt to get it all right.

The rims didn't fit as well as I think the could have on the spindles,and keeping them straight (vertically) was a challenge. Even though I use a jig with magnets to hold them all in place to dry once they are glued on.

I was quite happy with everything else. The one piece bed is a pleasure to have and only the tailgate needs to be attached.

The V8 (probably a 5.4L) looks good although it's only a stock engine.

I dechromed the wheels and painted them black. The tires are really well done for a 4x4. The front suspension is very accurate, and tricky to assemble (much like the real truck).

The body is painted Tamiya Orange. The interior is an off white. I added a duffle bag to the front seat just for interest.

The chassis was detailed with various shades and colors of paint. It's not a mistake on the rear leaf springs. Ford intentionally bowed the frame rails in to make the truck track better (an old trick from race cars technology).
