I have gotten to help on this project some....and was not aware that it was going to be announced at Toledo. As soon as they can I am sure Dave Metzner will get on here and give details. But he will be out this week at iHobby. If I get a OK I will detail.....but that will be a few days at best. Just let's say it will make modelers happy!

I hope Moebius does a 73-79 next since so many parts from the 71 can be used and it will hopefully have a correct regular longbed and not the rare Camper Special option.

I swear, if I were able to do a back flip, I would do one,maybe two!! THANK YOU Moebius!!!! Looks like they may also be planning on doing a '68-'69? I especially like reading "First in a series of 1:25 scale highly detailed Ford pickup model kits". I agree 1000% with my buddy Jeff about the first generation Bronco. Is it too early to pre-order a case??

2013 may just be one of the best years yet for us!

That Moebius Models' Ford Ranger would make cool "Hillbilly Pickup", bit rusty and dusty and equipped with a Shotgun, of course. :lol: I'm really looking forward to all of those, but the Ford Pickup is maybe the best one. Those kits from Moebius are always top quality, and that is already enough to buy their kit. And when the subject is interesting, I can't wait to see one on my Bench.

Needs to build also one Rat Roadster, and pick another one for parts. Oh man, that will be another very pricey year for me...

Along with Moebius' 1971 Ford Pick up I was just informed that there will be an additional kit announced in this line. Dave Burket of Model King will be issuing a Moebius tooled 1969 Ford Pick Up Kit. Details of what each kit will include will be posted as soon as a few small things are worked out. But these two kits are just the start of many related truck kits and some other FANTASTIC automotive subjects!!

All we need now is for AMT and/or Lindberg to introduce a new tool of some kind and 2013 will go from a nice year already to stellar!

Cool...I like the '69 style grille more than the '71. Hope this series is successful and the aftermarket responds, would love to build a '67-69 Crew Cab.

Any news from Moebius about other new kits? I've heard rumors elsewhere of a mid '60s Ford (maybe a '65 Comet) and perhaps another '50s subject or two. I guess any news from them will be coming out at iHobby later this week..

I haven't seen the modeling public in such a positive mood in ages ....... Not since the early 90's when we got a rash of new tools. All the news the past few days proves we're living in a healthy hobby. These are indeed good times.

Thanks to all involved

This will be a must for me. I had a 67 with a 71 grill in it.

If it's accurate to the real one, I hope the make extra beds, the originals only last a few years,lol

You got it! My 67 had the painted white grill and this guy I knew that worked at a Ford body shop gave my a 71 aluminum grill that had a very tiny dent in it. Looked better than the painted grill.

I just remembered, I also had a 69 pickup.
