    Yes, we're getting 65-66 Ford F100 pickup based on the current 67-72 style kit.  Details still not finalized but multiple versions are planned which will include the stepside for the first time.  A 4x4 version of the current kit should be out later this year.  I have a test shot of that sitting right next to me.  More on that 4x4 kit in a separate post soon.

    I'm with Curt on this and I think the majority of resin buyers would never support any of these direct rip-off artists knowingly.  If your going to be in the resin casting business,  being copied is a chance your going to have to take.  I hope you do Paul, life is too short to worry about every worse case scenario.

    This is my latest build, a Kansas Highway Patrol 65 Plymouth Belvedere built from the Moebius kit.

    There was a display model of the '50 Olds made from an Ertl diecast but nothing other then box art pictures of the Studebaker.  It's almost unheard of for kit tooling to be produced and then scrapped instead of being run. The only exception that I'm aware of was Revell's first version of a mid-eighties Cutlass which there were at least one test shot shown at least 10 years ago.  It was very simplified compared the recent kit as I recall.

    That's for an under-dash set of gauges to be included in a later issue as shown below.

    65 Belvedere Kansas Highway Patrol
    Take one Moebius 65 Plymouth Belvedere kit, swap a few parts from the Moebius Satellite and Johan Police Car kits, add a few aftermarket parts along with a few minor modifications and you can make this ...



    You can see all the build photos in the on the workbench section, just follow the link below.

    ..... continued from yesterday. Once the foil work was completed the body got several coats of my favorite PPG lacquer clear and was set aside to dry.

    While the clear coat dried I finished detailing the dash by adding a column shift lever and a two way radio. Note the photo color difference between daylight and evening at my workbench. Weird huh ?

    A test fit of the polished out body to see how it looks on wheels again ...

    Another shot with the body permanently installed along with the glass. I also started on the single spotlight for the left A-pillar.

    Here's all the rear bright work installed, note the package shelf lamps Kansas used back then. I would have expected amber or red lenses over yellow but that's what they used.

    The front bright work was next followed by the hub caps, handles, mirror and the spotlight head with the red lens. The inside handle is sourced from Lindberg's 53 Ford kit.

    The last pieces of hardware to go on is this four part Federal 17 Beacon. The domed lens and lamps are Johan pieces, the base is resin part and I made the gasket. A whip style antenna will also be added.

    All it needs now is the graphics and it would be ready to go "In Service"

    I'll post the finished pics in the under glass section later today ....

    Time to catch everone up on my KHP Plymouth project which got interrupted to build a certain Comet model you might have seen posted here a few months ago. I did managed to finish the Plymouth before the end of the year but I failed to post any of the progress so here I go ....I sprayed the headliner first, re-masked the body and shot the Light Grey upper color.  

    Before spraying the lower color the Plymouth lettering was foiled, a light coat of primer was applied and the letters were picked out with a toothpick dipped in thinner. this process will be repeated after the color coats.

    Here's the finished lower color applied. I normally let my painted bodies sit for a few days before adding the foil trim and then clear coat but you won't have to wait that long since it's already done.

    Here's the hood after picking out the lettering again. It will really pop once the clear is applied.

    And here's an in-process shot of applying the foil trim. The window gaskets were done with a fine Sharpie.

    I'm going to pause here so I don't overload with posting photos, watch for another update very soon.

    That's always a struggle especially when it comes to plated parts.  When I see opportunities to improve the mounting points I will make the suggestions.  A lot of times they will make the changes but there are limitations.  Sometimes parts have to be grouped a certain way to allow for insert changes for alternate versions.
    I can say that Moebius car kits have improved since the beginning and they do listen to constructive criticism.

    Here are some more photos of the AFX version 65 Comet Cyclone that will be a future release






    Moebius made many changes to this version, sharp eyes will spot the body trim differences. The chassis has been revised to get that high suspension stance and that's a new engine bay to house the well done 427 Cammer engine. The interior sports racing bucket seats, a roll bar and a deleted rear seat trim panel. A tach and a 3 gage cluster go above and below the dash respectively.
    A big thanks to Dave Metzner and the others at Moebius Models for allowing me to early preview this to you. If you want to see a few build in process photos follow the link below.

    Yes with Dave Metzner's OK I was able to preview this early test shot of the 65 Comet Cyclone A/FX version we'll be getting at the Motorcity NNL today.   There is no release date or packaging details yet.  I will be showing much more of this model in future post so stay tuned  ....
