Why? There will be a 4WD version of this kit, eventually.

I wonder how quickly the different versions will follow the initial release? Weeks, months, years?

 

I wasn't paying attention to the Hudson releases, so I have no idea how Moebius does it.

Some pictures were leaked that showed this series of kits with a 4wd set up. It hasn't been said when they will have the 4wd version out, but considering they already have it tooled up, I would say it will be months.

I would agree. I'm sure Moebius will have something definitive to say in a few weeks in New Jersey.

Well if you figure there are 5 variations of this kit, and we know for sure what the first two are, I imagine those final three (presuming no further Model King involvement) will probably get spread across a good 18-24 months.  Moebius has the two new car kits to issue as well, so I don't expect they'd necessarily express issue out all of the truck kits in the first 12 months.  Between the Pontiac, the Comet, and 5 variations of this truck tooling they've got kit releases for two years (and that presumes no Model King involvement with the two car kits) without actually having to do any NEW new kits.  Perhaps they'll pivot back to another large truck kit since the Automotive side of things is "planned out" for awhile.

Moebius mentioned in a post on their FB page that they'll have news on a trailer in a few weeks. Maybe something completely new or a variation of the Great Dane they have or.....

Just noticed on the Tower Hobbies website that this kit is now shown as being "late Jul", sure hope that is an error. I know they don't always run current with other outlets as far as release dates, maybe we will know more after the NNL East.

I was talking to Dave & Art about these. Dave has to build the second test shots (the two displayed at NNLE are the first) and make sure he approves of the kit. Then it's time to talk box art & packaging. I'd guess late summer.
