I think one of these would be an awesome addition, especially with the Brisfit and Ninak postwar stuff coming out now, and most likely a DH-4 as well?

It seems they were used up to the thirties. So, they would also be a nice addition to Silver wings resin planes.

Following the big Photobucket rip-off attempt, all my pictures on the forum cannot display anymore. I try to reupload the RFI pictures, but i'm not sure i'd have enough time and energy to reupload the pictures of the WIP threads. If you're interested in a specific subject and want me to reupload some pictures, just let me know. :)

Indeed! This was built on a Ford T chassis.

Is the Airfix 1/32 Ford T still in production ? I remember converting it to a fire-car some 30 years ago. Converting it to a Hucks starter should be easy enough ...

Indeed, if you find an old Pyro or Airfix kit, this is far from difficult:

Two walkarounds:

And a master even exists but for an obscure reason the kit was not released!

I have NEVER seen a Ford T in 32 scale, by anyone. If Airfix made one, then it would be fairly straightforward.

Yup - the Airfix Model T has been around for at least 5 decades IIRC and would be a good starting point! :)

I'd love one of these things too. Pix of the Hucks in New Zealand last month:

This would be a blast to build! I might be interested in giving it a try if someone can find me a kit to start from...


In progress: 1/32 Trumpy P-38L (very slowly), 1/32 Trumpy Me-109E-4, and some others.....

On deck: Can't choose between 190D-13 "Yellow 10", Hase P-47D, or Tamiya Corsair....

Completed in 2015: Hasegawa F6F-3 Hellcat, Hase Me-163 Jagerfaust , 1/16 Fokker DVII Scratchbuilt Wooden Skeleton
