Revell Foose Ford Pickup Truck Model Kit


revell foose ford pickup model kit


This is a Revell Foose Ford pickup truck model. This is the second one I've built. But this one is more or less a quick build.

The kit I used had a scratched / gouged front windshield.

Recenty I ordered some Vallejo Air paint, a pink color, and ended up with an extra bottle because I accidently ordered two of them.

I also had some anime / manga style stickers I had ordered months back from Amazon. It was a bag with about 100 or so different stickers.

You can buy model cars with these style graphics on the decals, but they can be expensive, so I ordered these stickers figuring they would end up on a vehicle project I built sooner or later.

With these three things coming together I decided to just build a quick version of the truck since the windshield wasn't perfect anyway.

I also wanted to try a Vallejo paint on a car model and see how well it worked. So this was a test / experiment as well.

The model truck itself was assembled stock with no mods.

I shot the body and related parts the pink color and as usual, the Vallejo paint lays down nice and smooth. I did not use primer. I previously tested the paint on a plastic spoon and it went on with no issues so I didn't see any need for primer.

I painted several spoons and then tested different clears. The best results was MinWax Fast Drying Polyurethane Clear Gloss 33050 out of a can (available at Lowes when I bought it).

It didn't harm the paint, and gave the paint a nice glossy look (and thus, sealing it as the same time).

I picked out various stickers from the 100 or so and cropped those with scissors to fit the different parts of the truck. These stickrs have a high gloss sheen to them. They went on with no issues. I did use some CA glue to hold them down in some of the more hard core curved areas.

Overall I think it all worked out well as a quick project. The paint worked perefectly, and I now have some experence with using the stickers on a model for the next time I use any of them.
