Hello,
These are my two F150 trucks. The all black one is the 2004 Beanstalk FX4, the black over silver is the 2003 Ertl Harley-Davidson Supercrew.
As models they are huge! Although the Ertl was almost 40 pounds/$75 in the UK, the Beanstalk is the better model. However, i love 1:1 F150s for their size and their loud, brash, brutishness. Even the 1:18s look out of place in the quiet village i live in :giggle .

Here are the pics:

I think that here in Texas, owning a 1:1 F-150 is a birthright. :giggle
We even have a Texas edition.

I also can't get enough of the F-150's and I am currently working on two mods.

Ascine - can you please post the pics of your F150s after you've completed the mods?

The F150 might be a birthright in Texas, but in rural Staffordshire, they are a very rare sight. I saw a new shape F150 in the summer, the first and only one i've seen around here.
One day i will own a 1:1 F150. You guys won't know how out of place a big US V8 truck looks in my street. It is a very quiet, genteel place, with some old thatched cottages, small country pubs that are 100s of years old, hedgerows and farmers fields.
I'm literally 50 feet away from the village hall where the pensioners go for their morning tea. I think i'll scare them all away with a sinister looking black F150 w/ 22 inch chrome rims sitting on my driveway! :giggle

:cheers

Yes I love those trucks!. I live in New Zealand and the largest trucks here until recently were Toyota Lancruisers! Ford has started to import Right Hand Drive F150's and F250's. They are made right hand drive by a New Zealand company and they apparently have better quaility interiors than they get in the factory! I haven't seen one of the 2004 model F150's yet. I actually like the look of the F250 more than the F150. I have 2 Beanstalk F150's and three Ertl F150's (a Harley Davidson ed, a standard blue model and a Outdoors version.)
They do look Huge in New Zealand, I saw a guy in a Nissan Patrol wilt when another pulled up next to him in a double cab Ford F250! It dwarfed his truck.

Personally I like the look of the Dodge Ram. There are quite a few of those where I live now as they are importing them and converting them to right hand drive (Chevy Silverados are here too). The same company does Ford and Dodges (Conversions in New Zealand).

I have about 10 or 12 Dodge Rams (Ertl 2500's and Anson 3500 Dually's) and 1 Motor Max double cab 2004 Ram.

Thanks for the link Nocky!
I might be able to have a RHD one as my daily driver. The only problem is the cost. A brand new supercrew in the UK costs 35,000 pounds ($60,000+), and this is in LHD form. So if i buy one it will be a 12-18 month old example; because of this it may be difficult to find a right hooker.
This may sound stupid, but i really love something about owning or seeing a huge American car/truck outside of the States!

Ascine - looks awesome, you have done a fantastic job of detailing it! :cool

:cheers
