  1. Curiously the Blazer for the catalog shoots has the correct door handles! I like the catalog Pulldozer graphics better, I think.
  2. I'm sorry, did you write the article? My original title was pretty specific, I thought. You're the first one to complain in eight years. 🙄
  3. Thanks, Hakan! I figured if anyone on here would find holes it would be you. 😁
  4. You might be better off getting another rear axle and converting it to an offset front axle.
  5. Any 1950 Chevy pickup with four wheel drive from the '50s would be an upfitter like NAPCO or Marmon-Herrington. Those components might look different than what you'd find in any kit. Swapping the body onto a newer 4x4 chassis is fairly common and the Deserter chassis is the easiest one available.
  6. If this set was released after 1991 they could both be 1:24 Monogram kits in Revell boxes.
  7. That was indeed a typo and has been fixed. Thanks for catching that. Whoa, that is interesting! It is listed as 1:25 scale, suggesting that it isn't related to this chassis. It does look like a rebox of the Pennzoil Firebird with smoked windows, though. If only there was a number on that box!
  8. Could it be that the front and rear body pieces are straight from the '87 GTA kit? 🤔
  9. My interest in this particular set of kits stemmed from coming across the Model King issue of the Firebird in a closeout shop. I looked for more information on that kit, it's relationship to the Camaro kits and, well, just had to write an article! https://sprue.xyz/2020/04/12/history-of-monograms-gm-f-body-alston-pro-stock-chassis/ As with my previous articles, please help me increase my accuracy of you know my assumptions to be false. Thanks for checking it out!
  10. Now if only someone offered the correct bumper... 🤓
  11. Not that I've ever come across. Only the wrecker.
  12. I tried the '65 camper on a '59 El Camino body once. It doesn't quite fit properly... 😔
  13. Are the massive slick tires typical of this style of race car or track specific? I confess I don't know much about the style of racing these cars would do, but they are fascinating to me. I just keep thinking that they should be running something closer to Nascar sized wheels?

  15. Yellow frame on the left is from the original 1987 issue, black one is from a built-up reissue of USA-1. If it is a modification, it is quite an extensive one. It looks to be different enough to be a separate insert. That being said, the stock long bed was last issued in 1989 and the first USA-1 kit was issued in 1990. Looks like I have some digging to do for a new kit history article...
  16. FedEx Expedited uses a lot of these, as well as Landstar above and Black Horse carriers. All team brokers where this truck is their only home. For when something absolutely needs to be somewhere ASAP. Have never seen a tandem truck, always single drives, sometimes a lift axle.
  17. https://culttvman.com/main/big-news-from-moebius-models/ 1966 Ford Custom Cab F-100 4 x 4 for 2nd quarter 2020 1967 Ford F-100 Service Bed pickup for 2nd quarter 2020 48 foot cambered trailer – previously announced 2nd quarter 2020 1953 Hudson Hornett reissue 2nd quarter 2020
  18. Interesting that the 40' container and chassis is going to be on the market as both Italeri and AMT.
