    • Site Upgrade   11/18/2017

      The Forums will be down, Friday, November 24th starting 8 AM PST for upgrade.We'll probably be down until 1PM PST, but it might be longer. I'm doing a major forum software upgrade, so I expect the forums to operate somewhat differently when we come back online.  Update: I've had a medical issue come up, and this window might not get used. If it doesn't, I'll push the maintenance back to Saturday, 2 December. 

Moebius bfx mercury cyclone ?

I finally was able to get one of the moebius 1965 comet cyclone kits and I noticed what appears to be a single chrome Webber carb on the chrome tree. I know the 427 sohc version is due next year but it appears a 289 bfx version is in the future!

Hi Jeremy,

Good catch! (finding the Weber on the chrome tree!). Here is the B/FX 1965 Comet I built from the Moebius test shot. There's a nice photo of this model in the new Contest Cars magazine (featured from the NNL North event).

The 289 will come with both the Webers and manifold, as well as a two-four setup and carbs as part of the B/FX version.

Thanks,

Jim

This is a beautiful work of art, no other way to say it! 
The same goes for your Comet!  I am in awe of what a beautiful car you built!

Nice catch Jeremy. 

I'm going bfx with mine as well. Have the hood and Webers and looking at yours Jim I'm chomping at the bit now.

I love the color choice!

Oops, some factory worker forgot to clip it off the tree?

Personally I find it odd, that they don't group the parts unique to version to one tree.

Any word on when these will be shipping? This is a Moebius kit I can really sink my teeth into. I'll wind up building several of these.

Comet B/FX car is possible from our tooling. There is NO B/FX kit under development today.

Will there be one in the foreseeable future? I don't know, yet.

What I do know, is that we have an Arnie Beswick A/FX car in the works for Model King. 

That kit is planned for a 1st quarter 2018 release. PLEASE NOTE that I used the word PLANNED there. Not the words guaranteed for arrival on a certain date.

I'm sure that Model King will be able to keep everyone informed as the actual date for arrival approaches.
