    Those mirrors are just one of the 'day two' (or three or four) modifications represented in the moebius F100 kits. The front sway was not offered as an option until the '73 F250/350 and not on F150s til '75. The 4bbl carb truck 390 wasn't offered til '75 and the large power brake booster didn't come along til about '77. A more accurate booster could be found in the revell  mustangs or '70 torino.

    Was thinking for some reason you were referring to the small mirror, not the '73up swing mirror... my bad

    Wanna bet ?  


    Ford also had some pretty goofy looking optional tripod mirrors back then too...

    Another view of a base '69, from the Ford brochure...

    Doubt there was any special reason other than that was the way it fit best when the basic body shell was engineered in the late fifties. The '66 restyle gave the falcon/fairlane/comet bodies a bigger engine bay with more room to mount these extraneous items.

    I don't mind that and hope that blond from a few months ago made them pay her extra for the idiotic pose they put her in...

  12. mk11 added a post in a topic Local Hobby Shp vs. Mega-Store   

    Another consideration for us north of the medicine line is that sometimes extravagant expenditure known as 'shipping'   There still exist some local suppliers that sell at a fair price that beats the toll charged by most online suppliers and when I find one, I try to support them. The chance to talk with fellow modellers is a plus at times too. Even with extra bucks spent, the bridge-building and friendships developed can be worth it. This even applies to trading stuff across the line sometimes.

    I've heard it said 'if you can't win the race, make the winner break the record!'

    A kit just sent to the eastern states was fifteen US tracked;  non-tracked is two or three bucks cheaper. Haven't lost one yet... (touch wood)
