Tower says, "Moebius 1/25 Great Dane 53' Trailer" not Reefer Trailer. So I'm sure Tom iMetzner is correct.

Jonathan, I don't see anywhere in the original post of yours where you said "Reefer Trailer" and it doesn't show that you editted the post either. I don't know what Chucky is reading, but it sure wasn't the post you and I are reading.

Will it be a Super Seal or Classic? Will it have curb side doors or roll up doors? Will the doors open? Will it simulate polished Stainless or Aluminum sides? Spread axle, sliding tandem or Tridem? Carrier or Thermo King? Steel disc wheels or Aluminum? Helps me out a little Dave.

As an aside, I don't know if Moebius or anyone else plans to make new-tool vintage truck kits, but as far as Internationals go, I'd love to see a '60s-70s Loadstar...like in a stake bed or dump truck configuration.

I'd like to see some more Internationals. 9200I, 9400I, ect. Also, some modern Freightliners like the Classic XL, Columbia, and cascadia. maybe Mobius will answer our wishes of modern trucks.

RYAN.

We could use:

Posted Image
Photo etch Placard Frames

Photo etch Lonestar and Prostar scripts, correct photo etch hood mirrors and brackets, authentic photo etch International muffler guards, accurate resin GPS dome, accurate 5 hole disc wheels for that "fleet" look, Current Thermo King and Carrier Transcold reefer compressors.

Get Microscale to offer modern 1/25th, 1/24th scale truck and trailer graphics...

I could go on!


Any word on this stuff?

Here are some shots of the new Moebius ProStar Mock-up
Yes it has LoneStar badges on the door - we'll fix that. The cab on the mock-up may be a modified LoneStar piece..
I think that the front bumper is an older version and may need some tweaking. Newest bumper is three pieces and has slightly different appearance.
I don't have the mock-up in my hands - we'll probably fix a couple things before it gets sent over for a final hands on review.
It looks alot like a ProStar to me..

WOW!!!! love it, still looking for the long stare to get here.
Pleas don't start taking this thing apart about what all is wrong. We (builders) have been crying for new kits, now were getting them and still crying about what is wrong. If you can fix it fix if its real bad then say something. Because not all kits are dead on.Look at AMT,Revell and the others at how far off they are some time not even close( like the Rubber Duck). And these guy jumped in hot water over heads trying to something good. So enjoy it as builders some better than others. Give some help to the one that are not..
Dave you all are doing a great job!!!!! if things keep going maybe we can see new stuff like KW'S,Pete's Hummm. Great job.

:blink: Now THAT'S a truck. While I do like all the chrome and the longer wheel base on the Lonestar, I LOVE the look of the Prostar MUCH better.
