Hi! It's just wonderful! I was just asked by a client to do one, could you please help me out as to where you found the blueprints? Of course, if you don't mind =) Thanks and congratulations!

Hi, this is probably too late for you now. Sorry, I have not been online for awhile because we have been so busy. No blueprints. We took a side view and front and back view photo off the internet, we then increased the size of the photos until we were able to get a size that we wanted to work with. Hope this helps and sorry to have not responded earlier.

Hi, the entire truck sits on a wood base for support underneath. The back bed frame pcs are all made of gumpaste and then glue in the box form to make up the back of the truck. Once those pcs were glued and dry, I amde a pattern for the fenders, cut the fenders from gumpaste and glued them onto the truck bed frame in the appropriate spot. I stuffed very soft tissue under each fender to keep its shape and let it dry. Once it was dry, I pulled out the tissue and placed a few small balls of gumpaste, about the size of a pea just inside the upper part of the fender and used them to give extra support.You should not be able to see them. Glued the little balls against the fender and the side of the truck. Hope this helps and good luck with your project!
