Did you modify this? It looks really good. The rear wheels are much nicer than I expected, and the laminated body side moldings are a very nice touch. Exhaust pipe is another nice touch.

Thank you for your kind words.
There were only two modifications I made. The exhaust pipe was made from a cable housing and the front wheels are zeroset (contrary to the kits construction with all wheels outset).

Hey thats pretty cool!
And a very NICE build!

And thats from the ABC magazine?

Just so you know, its actually more like a basic mid 80s Ford F-100 Pickup.

(They've tried to copy the rear pillars but it looks
more like some sort of deflectors added behind the Cabin?)



A Bronco is not really a pickup truck.
Its a shorter bed, and the cabin goes right to the rear tailgate
and it has rear seats, and a removable hardtop.

This model would make a great basis for some modified pickup trucks,
and repaints.

I still think ABC magazine should offer electronic delivery over the internet. There are several folks I know who would subscribe.

I think Ford did use the Bronco monicker outside North America on a small pickup

Maybe the truth lies somewhere in between.

After having read your posts I browsed the internet for some pictures. To me it seems to be a combination of a Bronco cabin and a F 100 truck bed.

Anyway, building was lot of fun...
...and, yes, I would take chance of subscription of an electronic version of ABC magazine, too.
