First Gear is such a great company. I own many of them.


These Fords have just been produced. And with the plastic kits usually more money than what you can buy these for it seems like a great deal. Christmas is coming!

That looks very nice....didn't realize First Gear did any 1:25th models, thought they only did them in a strange scale like 1:35th.

I think this was posted on here a few days ago...pretty neat, never seen a First Gear model in 1:25th, thought they were some odd size like 1:35th.

Yeah, I have a 1958 or '59 GMC box truck that's 1/36th scale. Pretty sure it is a First Gear.

we have overlapping posts
I started this one as well
http://www.modelcars...showtopic=66509

First gear makes great models, and I try to get them when I can. Their 1/25 scale is something they started on about 10 years ago and it is starting to take off. Originally only the rigs were done in 1/25, then they started to make 1/25 muscle cars. They also made a great 1/25 scale dodge ram van, short wheelbase. Search for one of those vans on google images or ebay they have great working doors.These are my two 68 C-10's that came out a couple years ago.

That's odd they have current NJ license plates. Not vintage ones.

Wrong body style if a '73 is what you want.

My dad bought a '75 in that exact color combo in November of '75. It had a 360 with a three on the tree. He was rough on it, especially for a new pickup. Even as a kid, I would complain about how he treated it. He would always say, "I bought it to use it, not to look at it!" I have an AMT '73 F350 that I plan to build a replica with. Maybe with Moebius doing the '71, they will also give us an F150 from that generation.
