This is an S-Scale (1:64) utility truck bed based on the Reading® 108" dual wheel service truck bed. It is designed for a tight snap fit onto an Ertl® Ford® F-350 Pickup dual wheel chassis that has had the existing truck bed removed. The truck bed comes with three (3) different bumpers in the package so that you can choose the best bumper for your project. We have also left the tailgate as a separate item; you can use the truck bed with the tailgate or without.
The truck bed is printed in ABS plastic which be painted with acrylic or enamel paints with or without a primer. We recommend a paint sealer if the unit is to be handled a lot or run on a regular basis. Super glue (Cyanoacrylate) is recommended to attach the selected bumper and tailgate to the body.
Each truck bed goes through a post-printing process that includes: extraneous plastic clean-up, a light sanding of the body, and a light acetone wipe on the body to provide an additional layer of smoothing. Additional sanding and smoothing maybe performed as desired.
The truck bed is available in the following colors of ABS plastic: white, gray, gold, orange, green, red, blue, black.
The package includes:
1 - utility truck bed
1 - bumper with trailer hitch
1 - recessed bumper
1 - straight-line bumper
1 - tailgait
NOTE: Ertl® truck not included.
