I think I might have to pass on these kits now

 

 

Why? I , like many others, have been looking forward to these. What has changed your mind?

Well your "Seal of Approval" pretty much "seals" the deal for me NOT to purchase one of these.

 

 

:huh:

 

Your loss, but it will leave more of them for the rest of us!

Then handle it privately. This forum isn't the place for settling past transactions, regardless of who's right and wrong.

Will do. My apologies

Once right is better than twice fast.

A friend of mine that lives on my street recently bought an all original, almost perfect 69 long bed. He said it's a little more rare than most as it has a 360 with factory AC and power steering. I'm gonna go crawl all over it with my camera and get pics for super detailing these new kits!

Thanks for volunteering to do that, Ben.

Best source on the net for detail on these trucks is fordification.com. Galleries, original brochures, tech stuff, it's all been done on there....

The project galleries have a lot of great stuff

I wonder why it has been so long since we have heard any new info on these kits?

It was exactly one month ago that Steve Goldman posted pics from the Toledo NNL...: http://www.modelcars...64836&p=1023345

 

...and Dave Metzner posted about them, too, a few days later: http://www.modelcars...64836&p=1026651

I think they intend to take enough/plenty time to make everything dead-on right before they put these kits on the shelves.  Pretty refreshing.

And it will pay off, just like with the Pro Star kit

I did see that thread,  I was talking more on the lines of quality, making it a good kit, not about that it will have huge sales numbers

I actually meant a post showing progress on how the prototypes are coming along. I think Dave mentioned that a few things were being changed and he would have revised prototypes sent to him. I'm just excited to see those. I'm in no hurry as I too want these kits as accurate as possible. It's just nice to see how they are coming along.

I'm told that the first plastic test shots should be in the US sometime between Christmas and New Years.  Generally speaking, once tooling mockups have been approved to tooling, and the steel gets cut/engraved, it can take at least a couple of rounds of test shots to get everything in a model kit to where it needs to be.

I would rather they take more time and get the inaccuracies fixed and produce a kit that I will actually buy than push it on through and put out a kit that I would love to have, but won't buy. The older I get, the less willing I am to buy a new kit and spend a lot of time fixing inaccuracies that shouldn't be there in the first place. With today's technology, there's no excuses for inaccurate kits.
