I would love more 4x4 options. Older trucks, broncos, blazers and such.

Same here. A modern SVT Raptor (even a curbside or , I dare say, snap kit) wouldn't exactly kill me, either.

I have about 8 4x4 WIPs going on as we speak! About 4 different GMC pickups (MPC & Revell), a couple of Jeeps, a Bronco, a Blazer and LRE conversion to 4x4 using an old Dencon resin transkit.

 

In the stash are about another 30 4x4 kits including an Unimog snow plow kit- drove one as a teenager when I worked for a Mercedes Benz dealer in the Midwest. Had to be the most impressive off road vehicle I have ever driven, used it to plow snow, move gravel, drag junk cars out of the back lot, used the fork lift attachment to unload trucks and stack junk cars. Never got a speeding ticket but then again I never got stuck in mud or snow!

 

I too hope for a first gen bronco and am anxiously awaiting those old Ford pickups from Mobeius to convert them to 4wd!

I need to build a replica of my 1:1 Geo Tracker.  I bought this new in 1991 and it hasn't failed me yet! I have the Suzuki kit as a start, but you'd be amazed at how many body differences there are between the two.

I've had this pair in my work pile for ever! It's the old Lindberg Trail Blazer. I was building the left one onto the Hogan's Jeep chassis and the right one on the stock chassis for comparison.  Yes, this was a real car.

The AMT - top.  This is a snapper that is pretty primitive. This is just a stock kit photo of how I acquired one of them. I have a second one that I have an entire new interior mocked up into and have it scoped out for the Jeepster chassis.

 

And of course I have plans for a few of the Hogan's Heros Jeeps.

I've never seen those Lindberg Trail Blazers.  Very Interesting..

 

 

Love those little Suzukis, I have a few in the works.

 

Model of mine

Fun fact...that same vehicle also portrayed the 'Paperboy 2000' in the old sitcom 'Get A Life'.

Rodney, those are pretty cool builds off the Suzuki!  I'll be watching if you post their progress!

Here's a Suzuki my daughter and I built together when she was a kid. Back when I got the Geo Tracker new she was all excited and into it.  She asked if we could build a model of it. The Escudo kit wasn't out yet but I had this one. So we built it in the colors of my Tracker which satisfied her.  A modeler friend of mine was also a jeweler and he engraved the little plates for her. That really made her day!

Believe it or not, There IS a Landmaster in the works!!

However, Not many here will want one.

It will be PAPER!!!!!

I believe the scale will be 1/43 at least on the first offering.
