I was looking at and admiring the '53 Ford dump truck in the Light Commercial section that was posted by Pharoah and that truck is a thing of beauty!!! There is a fine example of a gap in the model world of a big truck that needs to be filled. I have to wonder if there would be enough interest in the mid to late '50's big trucks - Ford, GM and Chrysler products - to make it worthwhile for a caster to start offering conversions of these in resin? While the truck model market seems hung up on the highway rigs ( Kenworth, Peterbilt, Mack, etc. ) there were many larger commercial versions of pickups that did much of the work in building our nations. Personally, I;d really enjoy building some of the work horses of the day back then that did everything from serving as single ( or tandem ) tractors for short hauling to dump truck, tow truck, flat deck delivery truck and even farm truck duty. I;d really love to see for instance a late '50;'s GMC or Chevy or a '56 Ford Big Job offered that we could build in any one of countless forms that were common back then. Maybe this post is in the wrong category but I am talking resin offerings here... So what do you think?
