River Point Station Ford F-350 Test Shot Photos
« 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.

An Atlas F-150 with the RPS F-350 crew cab.


A GHQ F-350 with the RPS F-350 utility truck.


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.

Here is a "first look" at production models of the River Point Station Ford F-350 and Ford F-250 trucks!



I am impressed!   ;D

Re: River Point Station Ford F-350 Production Model Photos

The photos posted by the hobby shops/etailers are of the final pre-production models.  Ron was able to work with the factory to "refine" the printing of the headlights and front turn signals to get an extremely accurate ratio of headlight to turn signal.  Here are a couple of photos of a production version F-250XL crew cab.





I am particularly impressed with the treatment of the gray grille and light surround since I own a 1993 F-250XL and a 1994 F-150XL with the gray grilles.   :)

If you purchase any of the River Point Station emergency vehicles, you will probably also want to purchase the light bar accessory pack. You get 10 clear (colorless) light bars ready to paint. A 0.035 inch hole (#65 drill bill) in the roof of the vehicle is all you need to mount the light bar.

Here is the crew cab from the fire department set with the light bar installed. I also added a trailer hitch made with 0.015 music wire in order to tow the rescue boat.



I am finding a lot of uses for these trucks!  ;)
