  1. The ease at which the Moebius parts interchange with the AMT suggests to me that it may be intentional.
  2. The engine has to be deep enough in the chassis for the snorkel to clear the hood. You either have to press down on the engine really hard to get it to snap in place or trim the mounting tabs on the water pump. IIRC they adjusted the tooling and the newer releases have been corrected.
  3. I do believe that one of the marketing gimmicks of the Longhorn was that you could put your camper in and close the tailgate.
  4. There was also a Datsun pickup with the same trailer and wetbikes

  6. Sergey, I think if you search for chassis you should find what you need!
  7. Look to be Mercury Cougar wheels. From the MPC '71-'73 kits.
  8. The console is a seperate piece. The only other kit with the bench seat was the Hardcastle & McCormick GMC.
  9. How about some 22.5 truck wheels that I can't seem to find in scale? I can't find good pictures of the Volvo one but the Kenworth one is easy to find...
  10. Oh, oh, this one too! 😀
  11. Several different colors in the chassis were used up until the early 90s by which point they switched to a uniform light grey across the board. The engine would be a Ford design of 358ci but are usually built by a specialty shop or in house by the biggest teams.
  12. Were they actual sleeper cabs, though? PACCAR and DTNA offer small sleeper looking extensions that are extra storage. Very common for logging, scrap metal haulers, etc around these parts.
  13. The Packard chassis is probably beefier...!
  14. Kootenay 3D Model Parts does Budd wheels too. I know he does them to fit Italeri tires, not sure what else they fit.
  15. You still need the dummy transfer case from the Explorer, though. 😉
  16. The front of the roof where it meets the cab is almost square on the Blazer while the Bronco has a curve to it. The tumblehome on both trucks is different from the other, too. But anything's possible...
  17. No, but it was a sweatbox in the back seat. Black, giant fixed windows, no AC... 😓
  18. There is a seller on eBay that does a printed Bronco II body. Would need a lot of work to make a proper vehicle out of it, though. The curved rear windows would be fun. Use the AMT Ranger or Explorer kits as a donor. I've been seriously considering getting it as I grew up in an '88 Bronco II. 🙂
