Sneak peek ....The IMC Tanker Trailer kit is back !!!

Posted · Report post

I've been hinting for while about another old IMC tooling coming back, well here it is !!! ...I just shipped this one back to Lindberg for use as box art. It's a test shot that they had chrome plated. Not the best plating job on this one but they'll do better once they're in production. A big thanks goes out to Ernie Petit and my friends at Hawk - Lindberg for letting me share this one early.

There should be an unplated version coming too. For those who aren't familiar with this kit it can be built as both a long tank (shown) or short tank trailer. The short tank can also be easily mounted on your favorite truck chassis. If you want to see what a painted one looks like with the L-700 check out the link to Timstrucks.com and go to the bottom of the page.

No release date or pricing info yet, If it's packaged with the L-700 which I'm assumimg for now, it should be priced about what the L-700 Trailer and 40 Ford Combo kit is going for. No word if it will be sold separately but I wouldn't rule it out. Look for an official announcement sometime this fall.

Now I'm not much into trucks and tankers (I do like the L-700 though!) that is one cool piece!. I can see that being our local milk tanker circa 1968-69 when I lived near a diary.

I might be interested in the short tanker (space) I'm trying to picture how that one looks........... :unsure:

It's not the best photo but this one was at the NNL East 2008. Maybe some here has a better photo of it.

Yes, the Semi Box Trailer was announced last year. It's also a former IMC tooling that shares some parts with the Flatbed and Tanker trailers.

The Semi Box Trailer should be available later this year.

I know this Lindberg release will spare my Revell Beall tanker from the saw. I'll use that for a big tanker and get a couple of these for truck mounted tanks. Yay Lindberg. B)

Although I don't build truck models at all and know next to nothing about them, I must admit they are one of my guilty pleasures on this site. Not only is the work truck modelers do spectacularly wonderful almost all of the time, but there's something about the detail and complexity of the subject that is completely seductive. I may never build one but I will always enjoy these big rigs to the max! And this shiny chromed tanker with all its cool details embodies everything I love about these things! Can't wait to see this incredible piece incorporated into someone's build!

Whoooo......that's spooky....How could you have known what my exact thoughts were on this subject... ;) .....

Bernard, not taking a shot at you mate, what you said is almost word for word the way in which I was thinking......you said it first, and better than I could've.... ;)

I would love to attempt a nice truck build one day....as Bill said, maybe combine this with the L-700 kit.......I'm liking that idea......hmmmmm...... ;)
