Im big on the fords and other american pickups but was wondering what my options are for 25th scale imports like yota datsun/nissan maybe even vw, again 25th scale to play with my american 25th scale trucks, if i wasnt being picky i woulda picked up the lifted hilux toyota kit in 24th, ill even take snaptite just want to change it up.

Your only options are the Toyota Hilux kits in 1/24th scale, or next month when Revell releases the Datsun off road truck snap kit in 1/25th

I've got some old little pickups in a box that I just uncovered after 20 years in storage. Not sure what they are, but I'll see what's there - maybe we can do some trading? :rolleyes: PM me if you are interested. I'm pretty much strictly into North American stuff - trucks and cars - especially old annuals that are salvageable.

There are a few older Toyota and Datsun pickups in scale.  There was a Chevy LUV, which is an Isuzu and a Ford Courier that's a Mazda. AMT did a Dodge D50 which is a Mitsubishi.  Check eBay for details, they aren't rare or expensive kits

MPC made a Datsun with a stepside and straight side bed. It's a pretty cool little kit.

Revell also did a 3rd generation 1978-83 Toyota 4x4 as a snap kit. Looks like a decent kit but it does have plastic tires which I know some people hate.

 

I have a different boxing of that Datsun and for some reason they put a small block Chevy under the hood instead of the proper 4 cyl.

That's one of those kits that eventually you'll come across one for $10 at a show.  You can set up an eBay search agent and they'll email you every time they get one listed.  Search for (chevy,chevrolet), luv.   It becomes a game to find one at the right price.  I recently was shopping for both a 1972 Chevy Impala and a Chevy Chevette.  Took me a while but after bidding on a few of each, I got what I wanted at a reasonable price.   Good luck!
