  10. Greg L. added a post in a topic Revell Q1 2015 releases   

    I heard the '80s F 150 'Ranger' will be the regular short bed and not the step side. I have not seen new photos of it yet. I think it only came out once in the '80s.

    (it's the stepside that is being reissued, I just saw the catalog page)
  11. Greg L. added a post in a topic MENG F350 DUALLYS   

    Matchbox made a diecast 1/24 dually similar to the Meng Ford trucks, maybe the year before Ford changed the headlights.
    I have one with Campbell soups logos. (they also made a tow truck version, without the wheel lift set up)
    The cab and bed are riveted together, not easy to take apart. It comes with chrome dually rims with triangle holes in them.

  13. Greg L. added a post in a topic Esci Ford Transit- Paris Dakar & Hertz versions   

    I found one of these van kits at last years NNL east. Maybe I will have it done for this years show, for their van theme.
    I tried to research the van that was actually in the Paris-Dakar race. I could not find much but I did find a photo of one similar.
    The vans were heavily modified for that race, including a 4x4 set up.
    Im not sure about the rims in the kit, it seems like they need lug nut detail.
    Still a neat kit. All of the Esci kits I am familiar with have nice tires with lots of detail on them.

    Also it has left and right hand drive options.
