What else can I say that is Positive that hasn't already been said? Thank you to you and your colleagues for believing in the truck market today! I see at least one new tanker on my fire department's roster. Perhaps two - a straight tanker AND a tractor drawn(pulling a Revell Beal Chrome tanker) .

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.
Hope to have mock-up revised and in my hands by early April
I know, I know there are some people's hair I'm going to make stand on end by mentioning this...and yes I understand it's a mock-up, and not in anyway reflective of the final product...buuuuuuut....
What you have attached to the front of that truck appears to be an interesting amalgamation of the older bumper and the newer one. The top picture is my personal truck I drove, it was a 2010, the lower was one of the trucks we got right before I left to take a local position with another company. It appears you have the correct shape and proportions for the 2013 bumper, with the inset/indents for the old bumper.
The other thing that stands up and screams at me is the fact the grill (it may just be the angle of the photograph) needs less grill and more grill surround. It appears too tall and doesn't seem to swoop down like the 1:1. Again that may simply be the angle, and the fact that it's hard to distinguish the separation of parts in gray primer combined with the franken-truck nature of the prototype. Stuff you're probably aware of already, but I spent hundreds of thousands of miles behind the wheel of one of these, and it's near and dear to my heart. This is the kit I always hoped Moebius would do when the announced the LoneStar.

Here are some Photos of two 125BBC 15L ProStars - The Black truck has the older 2 piece bumper the Yellow one has new 3 piece bumper Also please notice the small filler panel between the front edge of doors and rear edge of hood - that small filler panel represents the 3 inch difference between 122 and 125 inch BBC dimension and is the easiest way to tell that you're looking at a 15L ProStar.

I am very very courious about how the Prostar would look hooked with the Great Dane trailer. So if you still have there with you the test shots of both the models, could you please post some pictures of the combo?
Thank you in advance,

I do not have the ProStar in hand yet. the photos are of the tooling mock-up which is still at the factory.
I anticipate that the mock-up will be sent to me within the next week or two - for final approval by the licensor once a few minor corrections are made to it.
Once the licensor has seen it and approved it - it goes back to the factory to be used as a tooling reference..
I may be able to get some shots of the trailer with the Mock-up while I haveit.
I do not anticipate having test shots until perhaps the end of May

I wonder who will build the first crete or sunflower truck ??
Will the Prostar have the hood mounted spot mirrors? Also just wonder can the low roof version be made from the kit.
