  1. Outstanding piece of trucking history brought back to life! I'm sure these rigs were popular with penny pinching fleets.
  2. The Ford is on my buy list when back in stock!
  3. X2! .I'm afraid the future is just going to get worse, I wont even mention the telsa big rig, which may not even have a driver.. I prefer the mechanical look of the past, the lubefiner hanging off the cab with oil hoses, west coast type mirrors with all the brackets, and turn signal lamps bolted to the tops of front fenders. Needless to say, I won't be in the market for any modern big rig, my money will go towards reissues or never been done before 50's thru 70's trucks.
  4. I doubt this, it has been covered in resin. Not sure who offered it, but pops up from time to time on ebay. https://www.worthpoint.com/worthopedia/1962-ford-100-shortbed-pickup-resin-131715956
  5. Just received 2 '65 longbeds. This is the kit I was waiting for. Probably get another 2 in near future. The long bed is unique tooling.. I can finally build a 65 or '66 F250 Camper Special. Maybe Moebius will go one step further and offer the 8' Flareside body in this series, which also can be expanded to use on '53 thru '72 pickups.
  6. I have to admit I wasn't a big fan of the 7400 back in its day, but, times have changed. Those simplistic boxy older cabovers now look much more interesting to me. This one is right on track to be another excellent build!
  7. IMO, forget the younger generation as being the focus on what to build, most are not going to spend there free time assembling and painting plastic parts anyway. I very much doubt if there behind the avalanche of reissues from the old AMT kits, its because of the older builders who still have the passion for the hobby. The success of the Moebius '65-'72 Ford pickups should tell us something. Continue this trend Moebius, nail the shortcomings and voids from the Big Plastic companies of the past and this time focus on some heavies as well. I have no interest in building modern aerodynamic fiberglass motels on wheels as seen on todays highways. Most of us who started building model trucks in the 70's will continue to buy and build model trucks if we get some new never done before classics. Here are a few suggestions.
  8. Finally my Dodge Tradesman 300 1 ton has correct 1 ton hubcaps. Thanks again Bill
  9. This bus is a classic, will never goes out of style. I'm in for couple as well. Question. Will it come with fender flares ( rubber on the 1:1) ?
  10. Good original F 350 for reference.https://www.hemmings.com/classifieds/cars-for-sale/ford/f350/2203013.html#&gid=1&pid=1
  11. Another good reference for the AMT F 350 Super Camper Specialhttps://barnfinds.com/3k-mile-survivor-1977-ford-f-350-ranger/
  12. Very impressive! Bringing a photo to life!
  13. Found the logo for Redwood Construction, same company in earlier post of the Pete Logger.
