  1. I am planning to build the service truck as a '66 F-250 4x4 with Fireball's kit as well. I have also, however, converted the flareside kit to 4x4 with the AMT '79 Ford 4x4 parts and everything fits great. Worth noting is the following modifications are needed: the front crossmember needs to be thinned down to slot into place and the relief in the frame for the leaf springs needs to be filled as the 4x4 rear springs mount a little farther forward. The AMT wheel backs slot perfectly into the Moebius wheels and those wheels fit perfectly in the AMT tires!
  2. Man whenever I see those trailers I swear they are taller then me and I'm 13'6! 😲
  3. Interesting! I only knew of the wide six lug pattern used on 3 ton and up trucks.
  4. Great! Listed as out of stock, though...?
  5. Is there anyone out there that makes the Mopar Performance valve covers for the 426 Hemi? Or even a set of finned covers in any kit?
  6. The long bed was last offered without trim so this makes sense. I will definitely be picking up a few of these as well! Unfortunately all of the kits I have are glue bombs so I won't be able to show a parts tree comparison.
  7. Also it is a long bed, not a new tool short bed.
  8. The tooling for the 2001-06 Chrysler Sebring was sold to GAZ and transformed into the Volga Siber. The Buick GL8 in China is still based off the Chevy Uplander platform, IIRC. In Brazil the 67-72 F-series tooling continued until 1992 with cosmetic upgrades; the 60-63 Falcon was built from 62-91 in Argentina with cosmetic upgrades; and the 66 Ford Galaxie was built in Brazil up until 1990. All those South American Fords continued with locally produced upgrades of the Y-block engine as well.
  9. The display with the service bed truck seems to have the stock bed behind it painted the same as the cab. I wonder if the kit will include both beds?
  10. Stopped for the day; turns out the old log book ruler is still useful for something. https://media.fotki.com/2v2EeU2v4xAUC7m.jpg I don't have any Round 2 boxes in the truck with my right now to compare with. But I think Rob was right, it is actually four short boxes for 3 tall ones.
  11. One needs only to look at the latest Escalade reissue to see Revell still doesn't match box contents to box art.
  12. I ordered this and the Chevelle when they released and finally was able to pick them up today. All this talk and no one has mentioned that the kit box is Round 2 sized instead of the traditional Revell box size. Might not mean much to most, but the way I store my stash I've always been able to stack two Revell boxes or three Round 2 boxes per shelf. Perhaps the new Revell is changing their shipping methods?
  13. You might have to start looking on Shapeways for wheels like those. I haven't come across any that big from resin suppliers.
