Title: River Point Station Ford F-350 Test Shot Photos
Post by: cfritschle on February 10, 2019, 09:21:25 PM
We now have the first examples of the River Point Station Ford F-350 models that were assembled from the test shots of the tooling.  The assembly and painting of the models was done by a non-professional, and it definitely shows.  However, considering these were assembled from test shots of completely new tooling, we can expect the models produced from the finished tooling will be superb!

And to make things a little more interesting, the new Fords were photographed with some existing N scale Ford models.

The RPS F-350 utility will come with end-user applied photoetched West Coast style mirrors.

Ron from River Point Station sent me some examples of the 2nd test shots for the new Ford F-350 models to “play” with.  These moldings are more refined, and should be ready for production.

First, here is a look at the interior for the crew cab.

Next we have views of the painted and assembled crew cab from four different angles.

We can be assured that the factory finished production models will look a lot better than these test shots.
