These would be cool to combine with the AMT camper kit that Model King reissued a few years ago. I'm REALLY excited about these!!!! An all new pickup will be great and I bet Moebius will do an awesome job as usual on it!!!!!!!

We have announced the first of Our Ford Pick-up truck releases at Toledo over the week end. That truck will be a 1971 8 ft bed Ranger XLT - Big Block automatic 2 wheel drive.
What we didn't show at Toledo is the second kit. This will be a Model King Exclusive. it will be a 1969 Custom Cab short Bed six cylinder stick 2 wheel drive.

Mock-ups for both kits are being done now. I hope to have them in my hands before Thanksgiving. Once we have reviewed mock-ups and made any corrections needed I'd like to hope that tooling will be under way by Christmas.
If all goes well we could have first test shots by mid February next year. Our hopes are to have kits on store shelves before the end of the second quarter of 2013

Wish I had a pile of great photos, but these kits are only 3d computer files at this time.
As soon as the Mock-ups get here I promise that I'll put photos up..

Thanks,
Dave

These pick-ups will be very interesting subjects, it's good to see some new pick-up tooling!
Can't wait to buy mine!

I have both the hornet and the 300 and I'm almost done with the Hornet.I just love the quallity and uniqueness you guys put into your kits,the quallity is second to none with only minor flaws.You have a customer for life right here.I also like how the sign said "First in a series of trucks" I'm pumped up about that. Any plans on a camper or trailers for this truck to pull/or a flatbed or something?

The straight six Ford engine should be worth the price of the kit alone. :wub: (Yes, I know about the Kitchen Table Resins offering ;) )

Is the Model King short bed going to have a full issuing so it doesn't shoot straight to $100 for available kits like the 79 reissue did?

You guys are on a roll!! I'm not a huge fan of the kit's you are choosing to make, but it's great to just build a different kit once a while! Thanks! Keep sticking to it!!

Unless a 4WD will be part of the "series of trucks", then the long bed should have been a 4WD and the short bed a 2WD. Otherwise, I'm very interested to see what the mock-ups look like!

Okay... did I actually just read what I thought I read?

Not one, but TWO Bumpside Fords? One with an 8-foot bed? And one with a STRAIGHT SIX????

I don't think I need to say I'm good for at least two cases of each. :wub:
