Moebius is boldly going where others have gone before, but striving to be the best at it. So it is going to take some time to get there. It's all good! I can't wait to get my hands on the best looking modern (aero) truck around...

We sent instruction sheet, Paint chart and decal sheet files to the factory onThursday - If all goes well kits ought to ship around 4/25 - that puts them on store shelves in May - maybe around May 15th - 20th.

Very cool! Will the decal sheet be similar to the Moebius LoneStar or the Revell of Germany LoneStar?

Decal sheet will be similar to LoneStar in that the interiors are very similar - Decals for exterior are different..

Includes some stripes for two tone paint scheme..

The ProStar at Jabbeke as well as the partially finished loneStar day cab wrecker and the silver& blue LoneStar ( also a test shot) are all the work of Guido Kehder in Germany. Here is the link to his site - his work is some of the best I've seen. There are several shots of the finished ProStar on his site as well as in progress shots of the big wrecker.http://www.die-leitplanke.de/

Those models and his details are outstanding! Should be a great model Dave, sure wish you had a wrecker body for it, I would buy 2 kits!

Our old car kiits are not produced from factory drawings - We go out and measure cars and photograph them with size references in the photos. The factory develops 3D files and tooling mock-ups from photos.
 
 Our two big trucks were develooped from CAD files provided by Navistar.
 
Finding and measuring an old Truck is a lot more complicated than sending a set of CAD files over the internet.
I'm not ruling out old truck kits - just explaining that it's not a simple or fast process.
 
We have some more big truck projects in mind.
 Let us get ProStar done and on store shelves and then we'll see where we're going..
 
ProStar tooling is finished - we're in process of finishing packaging, Instructions and decals now. I'd like to think that kits will be in stores Before the end of April. I'd like to say that they'll be avaialble earlier but I don't want to over-promise..
 
Dave



Sounds promising.... Hopefully other brands of trucks in the future. I'm loving the lonestar and prostar but a mack Titan and or granite would be awesome plus they are global.

I've been waiting since December for my Lone Star and Pro Star.........I don't want to, but if the quality is as good as I've heard it'll for sure be worth while waiting on. I have two of the Moebius trailers in the box just waiting for equally good tractors to put in front of them.

Why are you waiting on the LoneStar? That kit has been out for well over a year now.

ProStars should be on the water in the next few days - we just need to schedule getting them into a container and on the boat!
