I built this model in the year of 1982 when I had purchased cab, grille and bumper directly from Jim Etter during a visit in his PA location in the year of 1981. While the model depicted here comes as a sort of box van, my model is a scratchbuilt flatbed, painted dark green as shown here. Frame (from an amt C600) is black. Decals on my model are Bloomfield Construction Co from a Ford Stake by amt.
As far as I remember, the model was easy to build, i.e. to clean, paint and fit to the C600 frame. However, windows were a challenge …
Since being built the Ford is sitting on my shelf, giving nice memories from knowing Jim whom I still admire for his skills and creativeness manufacturing his product line. Following the F-600, I have built quite a few more AIM trucks like a MACK B61, MACK F, MACK F-700, GMC 9500 (short and long), Brockway 760 and 457 plus some more, as well I have used many truck parts on my other truck models. All of the US trucks listed above do still exist, and they are admired a lot by fellow modelers.
