Brad Norgaard restores the Scout Truck - A Must View for All Airformers

Brad, thank you. Go to Brad's website.

'59 TradeWind Blog

This brings the 1959 Caravan to life in the 3D and physical world.

Your Restoration of the African Scout Truck is fantastic.

A grateful Scout, lives the trip again.

Thank you,

Pee Wee

Thumbs up The coolest!

Brad and PeeWee, that is amazing.

Brad, you're attention to detail is impressive. What a wonderful thing to do. I'm sure PeeWee will treasure it.

Are you sure those rivets are to scale, Brad? They look a little large to me.
No really, That is awesome, you did a great job, I am impressed. More pics please?

Silverhawk, Bob

Thanks all for the kind words and no, the rivets are not to scale. They would have been too small to work with if they were.

I'll post more pix soon.

A few more pix. I'm hoping I can get it ready to travel so I can take it to the restoration rally tomorrow. Very close.

Good Enough to be used a stand in

Brad,

I had to look very, very close to validate that this is your minature Scout Truck. Outdoors in comes alive.

Really, really nice.

Pee Wee

Hey Brad, I just wanted to say again how much I like your Scout Vehicle. Those outside shots are lifelike that I had to save them. Thanks for posting them.

Here is the original in Nairobi, Kenya.

There is not enough praise for Brad's African Advance Scout Truck.

Kudos!

I seriously thought i misread the post.. At first it thought it was a scaled down model and was amazed at the detail.. then in the sand I was sure it was a restored truck with the camper on the back.. Had to go back and reread what the heck i was actually looking at..

Again.. Great job.

I did the same thing, I kept thinking where did the Scout Truck come from all of a sudden and in such good shape.
