Just wondering if there would be any interest in a resin 92-96 Ford Bronco. I'm working on one now and have a friend that I could ask to cast them.

How much would be done, just the body and interior? Or would there be a chassis plate/frame? Which kit would be the basis?

If it's based on the AMT Bronco, I would definitely want one!

I will go along with Jordan on this one- what is included and what would be the price point?

Could be interested if the price is right.

I would be interested if the price is within reason.

The kit I'm building is based on the AMT 93 F-150 Short Bed. I'll have to talk with my buddy and see what he would charge to cast them. He's down for the moment, I just found out today that 2 weeks ago he had a stroke...

Do you have any photos? Sounds like a lot of work converting the F150 into a Bronco.

Looks good Chuck. It is hard to tell from the photo if the lines are correct. I don't mean to be critical, but having been the owner of an '88 Bronco and my fire department had a '92, I am used to seeing them. Pinecrest Scale Models(long out of business) made some great resin Broncos. Here is one of their later versions that I am working on:

Back in the day, I believe that they ran around $40 for the kit which included body, interior bucket, seats, chassis plate, and 4x4 suspension. Don't know what ever became of the molds. The owner was a nice guy to do business with...

Since it's based on the F150, it would only be 2WD, which the 1:1 never was. Hopefully some sort of 4WD system could be cast and included as well.

You should see the 81 to 88 Blazer/Jimmy he made from the Fall Guy truck.

This is the blazer I made to look like my 91.

What did you use for those Rally wheels on your Blazer model?

1/24 Monogram Rallys from the 77 Chevy Step Side kit.

I talked with the caster the other night, I have a few more things to do on the master of the Bronco then get back with him. I'm going to try to make it as complete a kit as possible...

Even if it were only offered as a body and interior tub, I'd be interested. I have more than enough F-150 kits to use as donors, and cobbling up a 4wd front end shouldn't be a problem.

I could offer it as a few different stages I guess. One with just body and interior and another as a complete kit...

I think the easiest thing to do for the 4WD system is use the parts from the rereleased Monogram '81 Bronco, since it's the same scale. However you'd have to mock up the parts on the chassis first to make sure that they will work with the AMT kit.
