That will be the Model King issue from Dave Burket, I suspect there will be some kind of announcement when he has them ready. 

I'm hoping Dave's hoping to have them for NNL East (4/26/14).  Model King usually has a big vendor area at that show. Fingers crossed!

Is it just me or does the windshield look a bit short?

Chop Top?

That pic is a mock-up from about a year ago and amazing in itself but don't judge the kit by it ....

to me it just looks to be the shadowing and the lil bit of overhang from the roof causeing it to look that way.

I think the windshield wiper arms are way too thick, I'm not going to buy one now. They ruined the kit.

The nit picking of a kit that isn't out yet is more than out of control.

Let's just be grateful that this is filling a black hole in the model truck scene. This looks a lot more accurate than a lot of the other stuff that has been issued by different manufacturers. I say "Thank you" for listening and for taking the risks associated with something brand new being developed. The AMT 70's Ford trucks weren;t exactly perfectly proportioned but guys sure do pay for them these days.

Guys are still trying to milk 1-200 bucks out of the original sealed kits in that series. Hilarious. All you're getting for that extra 75-150 bucks is a grill, basically, and box art if you're desperate for that.

I email Mobius and asked

 

 

I have been reading, on some Model Car Magazine Forums, that Moebius will be releasing a late Model Ford Pick Up truck in 1/24 or 1/25 model scale. Am I, too bold in asking if this is true, and if so, how soon before I proudly give you my money to have one.

 

Just a little eager

 

 

"There response"

 

 

 

 

 

We are working on a 71' Ranger, it will be out later this year, that is about all the info that is available regarding it right now.

 

 

 

Thanks.

Now I see that Moebius Models will also have a booth at NNL East! Could this be the debut? Fingers stuck in crossed position.

 

Any updates, Dave?

From what I hear, there will be a new variation of the reefer trailer announced at that time too.

That would be awesome if they were. Maybe I should cash in some air miles and fly up??????

I will confirm that Moebius will be at NNL East.  I've been in touch with Dave Metzner and they will have a two table display. He hasn't shared any secrets with me, but I don't believe the kits will be available at the show. A little bird tells me they'll be on open water at that time.

 

Revell will also be at the show with a three table display.  Ed Sexton will attend.

 

We also had Round 2 coming, but sadly John Greczula emailed on Thursday that they regret that the logistics won't work for them this year.

 

Sad because this would have been the first year we would have had all three major manufacturers in the house!

 

Generally the manufacturers don't sell kits, they just do corporate displays and talk to folks.
