As an old senior citizen that has been building models since the fifties, I can only say I have not been as excited about model kits for a long time. Now comes Moebius and it's 1969 again! I can't wait until these kits are released. I can only hope there will be 4 Wheel Drive versions and Step Side versions in the wings. 

 

This all gives me hope, and something to look forward to again.  :)

 

Now if only they would make a late '60s, early '70s Dodge Pickup that I can afford. Sure there's resin, but a retired person can't afford $100+ for a Dodge Pickup.

Has anyone noticed on a nameless auction site that pre-orders are being taken for this kit a $120 bucks? Is the kit gonna retail for near that once available? If so I may rethink getting one let alone the several I was thinking about getting.

 

Just curious.

If you're that desperate for one, there's always gonna be someone there to take your money...

Ol' PT has been proven right many times over.

Can you share the link please?

 

And no, they will not retail for a $120

Tower Hobbies has this listed as coming in September and has a price of $26.99. Not sure what The Model King will be offering his version for but probably somewhere near the Moebius one.

Nope, the Ford F100 kit MSRP is NOWHERE near that figure.

If current Model King releases are any indication expect the pickup to be around $33.

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

 

 

A must for me too! I have a '72 That I'll definitely want to replicate

Any updates on when this kit will be available? I noticed on the Tower Hobbies website that they have a mid-September availability. I know there was some last minute fixes to be made so hopefully this is still on track to be out soon!

This is a superb rendering of the F250 hubcap, hope the F100 cap is also being created for this F100 shorty

Interesting that both mockups show the dana rear end and not the regular 9 inch Ford diff. The dana was definitely available in the F100s but was fairly rare. They bring good money from the musclecar guys when these trucks are parted out

...and as far as rear bumpers go, I'm sure over 80% of these came with some form of step bumper vs the relative few that had the deluxe chrome rear bumper in the previous poster's picture. Also, the '68/'69 trucks did not have a bedside marker light; it was actually just a reflector mounted low on the rear.

I knew that they would catch the 1/2 ton hubcap mistake, but if I were a betting man, a 3/4 ton, long wheelbase could be down the road. Just the right application for a resin camper shell, or a utility body. So many applications.

Sounded to me like the '71 longbox gets the 360/390 and the '69 shortbox gets the six.

They have it listed with an MSRP of $34.99, $5 more than the Chrysler 300B; interesting. Maybe multiple building options?
