Inspired by Jimmy Shine's 34' Ford Pickup Rod. I was looking for a new project and found an Iconic Rod, built by a legend in the field of Rod Builders, definitely an inspiring Personality.
I set to task researching the internet for pictures and drawings to assist me. Even purchasing a out of print copy of "The Rodders Journal" edition No. 15 from 2001, delivered all the way from the USA.

The 34' has some radical features including a Suicide Front End which took some head scratching. I wanted a model that could also be radio controlled so I have also included location points for 5mm bearings in the rear and front axles, The motor has a location for a servo to control the steering and there is plenty of room in the back for motors and batteries,.
Added dash and steering wheel,motor and seats :)
( there are a lot of parts around 60!!)
Added V8 hub cap and pictures of dash in the cab
I have now put the cab, the tray/bed, and the chassis on my Shapeways shop to buy as assembled pieces
A rewarding model.
its up to you
