M-715 Project Installment #3

Work has concentrated on the back of the pickup bed. This one is utilitarian to say the least. Sheet metal and steel tubing is what they used to make this up. But it makes it fun to duplicate. I took the center part of the Honcho tailgate and merged it with some 0.030 sheet stock and built it up from there. Some brass work along with it makes it functional. The beginning of the taillights has been done and will work on the bumperettes and pintle hook next.

The frame is now lengthened the 10 scale inches it needed to have. I reinforced the frame just ahead of the rear springs. It was pointed out to me that the springs scale out to be about 6 feet long. But I'm not changing them this time. Will go with what is there.
