It is fascinating..before today I'd never heard of Meng.

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.

I have no doubt that they are planning a dually version if the sales are good, it only makes sense as they chose to do the long box version single

Hey Rob, have you seen the 1:35th scale Toyota Hilux kits?, those are made by Meng,  never paid attention to the company that made either tell now

I saw them in this thread for the first time....I don't usually pay much attention to 1:35th.

I dont either, I had seen them before while doing a search for Hilux 1:24th kits, but never looked who made the 1:35th kits

That's cool.  Looks like the "to do" list just got a little longer.

Looks like my fire departments are gonna be getting some new rigs!  Tons of possibilities  between the long box, crew cab, 4x4, etc.  Could make a regular cab, brush trucks, ambulances, rescues, Chief's vehicles...  Need to start saving my pennies!

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

 

I hope not. We'll get the least popular version with the least options and have to buy three kits to get the version we want. I had never heard of Meng models before today. Looking at their test shot and parts layout, I'm impressed. I keep coming back to this thread and pouring over all of those parts. Personally, I sure won't mind $40-$50 for this kit.

You are probably correct

MENG is releasing a 1:35 M2A3 Bradley with BUSK III Upgtade this month that's supposed to make every other prior Bradley look like a joke. It's 667!!! parts, and has a full interior and engine/drive train along with three sheets of Photoetch. HLJ has it for $72, proving the military guys pay, they get results.

So excited!!!! Now I can replicate the welding rig I drive for work.

Here's a resin dually bed for it I'm already making the 99 f350 crew.


What did you use for the rest of the truck?

Sure happy it's an '08-'10 and not the gaudy grilled '11up.  Great to have a scale 6.4 powerstroke finally; probably won't be long before resin copies hit the market.

Really looking forward to getting one of these...my local hobby shop carries the 1/35 meng trucks, hopefully they will get this one in as well.

not to mention the grille and bumper being a one piece unit!  but this new kit should look pretty sweet next to the monogram f250/350.
