With the bed being a separate runner, I'd bet money on it...and LOOK a window mask for the windshield trim!

Notice, under "Super Duty", it says, "1/24 Car Series CS 001". The first in a line of 1/24 vehicles? Looking forward to this!

I hope so. I think i can make out the turbo on the far right. Definitely one of these. Then hopefully they do a dually! The hilux is really amazing. Way to go Meng!

The info board says something to the effect of (I'm not looking at it right this minute) "In 2008 Ford redesigned the F-350 Super Duty with this that and the other and powered by a diesel engine".

Judging by the top left tree, it's also going to be a 4X4!

I saw this on facebook and did a happy dance. Finally the perfect hauler for the line of galaxie trailers! And as for a dually I REALLY hope they do one of those as well.

If this kit does well sales-wise, I would think it might persuade Revell to tool up some new kits of modern trucks.

Lets hope so

The box art and decal sheet both show 4x4 markings. It's a Crew Cab, diesel, 4x4! ALSO TWO wheel choices, TWO running board/bar choices, along with the option for a closed bed gate, or open with the tailgate "extender".

Take my MONEY!

I like it. The 1/24 scale is fine with me but I think that there are a considerable number of builders (or are they just forum posters?) who won't buy anything that isn't 1/25. I remember liking to build 1/25 AMT car kits with Revell 1/24 engines and wheels/tires because of their slightly larger size.

What's great is that since they modeled the F350, there are so many different things you can build with it (if they produce a dually version, like Monogram did with their '90 F250/F350, then ever more versions arise).

 

I'm thinking I'll have to buy at least two, one to build stock and one to build custom.

It'll be interesting to see how the engine goes together and looks - the engine bay on these diesels is literally completely filled! I am slapping a winch bumper on my truck this week...this is cool news.
