    I used several of these kits as the basis for other models by lengthening the frame and adding resin wheels/tires.  I did a min-pumper, a light rescue, and a wrecker.  The only one I could find images of was the mini-pumper.

    It is ironic that the number 1 selling vehicle in the US (for several decades) is the Ford F150 pickup, yet the model companies look the other way when it comes to modern light trucks and Sport Utilities.

    I guess this new version explains the aftermarket dual exhaust and not the single muffler system that the original stock versions used.

    Hopefully they will offer both the long and short wheel base / pickup box versions.  Actually, it is pretty easy to make a 6' box version from and 8' box version, but much harder and more expensive (2 kits required) to make an 8' version from 6' version.

    Here is a rescue that I built from a couple of R&R panel trucks  Used the second one to length the body to be a 3/4 ton C20.

    Wheels of Time has now added a model truck column written by Lee Hartman.  After belonging to ATHS for over 30 years and getting WoT as part of the membership, I'm really pleased that they've added model trucks to the magazine.  If you love older trucks, this is the group to join.  In addition to WoT, they also do a separate publication with a photo of every truck registered at their national convention.  A great bonus for memebers from all over the world.

    From conversations with Don and Carol over the years, they said that he had written approvals from the model companies to reproduce parts for kits that were long out of production and would never be produced again.  He also purchased the kits or models he used as masters and in most cases improved upon the original part. Don was also an avid model builder who mastered most of his own kits. The only time that ran afoul of written approval was when the mastered and produced those early GMC pickup truck conversion parts.  They did the work based on a verbal approval from someone at GM and when that person left the position, the new guy came in a suddenly wanted a royalty before he'd provide written approval.  Supposedly, they negotiated and finally got written approval, without royalties, a couple of years ago, just as they announced their retirement.

    I think that cash flow may be a problem with Moebius right now.  I know that they have the Ford 4X4 pickups tooled, but aren't promising when they will be released. I think that on kits like the Comet and Hudsons, once the initial rush by older modelers to buy them goes by, the rest sit on the shelves of hobby shops (at least the ones I frequent) and refill orders for additional kits aren't being placed.  I hope I'm wrong but in talking to owner of my local hobby shop, he said the only Moebius kits that he has had to reorder have been the Navistar Lonestar and ProStar, and the Ford pickups.  Without cash coming in, tooling and production of new kits has to be put on hold. 
    Just my thoughts.
