Just noticed the other day that Tower Hobbies is show a Mid-May release for a Moebius 1956 Chrysler 300B.  Did I sleep through someone ever mentioning this kit being released?

 

They also list the '71 Ford P/U for Mid-February.

 

As always all release dates are tentative, your results may vary.

Interesting...hadn't seen any mention of that anywhere.   Nice if it does happen, the '56 was a better looking car than the '55, IMO...

Not a big stretch to make a 56 out of the 55, as the differences between the 2 are subtle 

 

Me personally I would rather they make an Imperial instead

I'd prefer a Windsor, to modify into Richard Zocchi's lead slead, but the '56 300 is a better starting point than the '55.

Anybody need a '55...or two?

I emailed Moebius to confirm.

Yes, the '56 will be out mid 2013.

I thought that the 55 was great, this is even better. I can't wait for this kit to come out.

Not a surprise.  Moebius is doing as many variations from each tool as they can. I'm happy to see they are resourceful enough to be doing this. It means they'll be around for the long haul and it's no secret if we support them with our pocket book, good things will come!

I am just finishing the 55.  It does seem to be a possible summer 2013 release.

I missed this, but I'm not surprised. I sort of saw this one coming.

 

Yes...a T&C and a New Yorker convertible would be welcome, too.

I like the idea of a '58 DeSoto / Plymouth / Dodge / Chrysler / Imperial . So long as it includes the Bendix Electro-Jector as an option !

I'd love to see them do a '55 or 6 DeSoto. I have to say I'm not too keen on the '55 and '56 Chryslers, but I'll buy 'em if it will nudge the fine folks at Moebius in that direction. B)

That Imperial sure sounds nice! Is there a website or phone number where we could contact Mobeius? These are ALL great suggestions, HOPEFULLY we can get a few more pops out of this great mold!!!!
