Chevy is pretty well covered in plastic kits, but one thing I really want is the '55-'57 GMC pickup. Also definitely the '73-'79  Ford 8' Styleside, a 6' bed and especially a step bed version. With the loss of Modelhaus, I would love to see someone put out the Ford '57-'60 and a '61-'63 stepside.

IH trucks do have a big following, even though they stopped making pickups in '75. Here is a model ahead of its time, a 1 1/2 ton without the big wide fenders and running boards found in other period trucks.

Will add on the to Ford resin wishlist since there are so many  pickup kits out there. The 8' Flareside and 9'  Flareside  (F 350) would really open build opportunities for '53 thru '79  models.

the Ford '57-'60 

The ' original 60 Ford pickup seems to be very collectable, they routinely sell for $100 in glue bomb condition, but I'm really getting tired of the '60 front end. IMO,  a '59 front end conversion would be a big improvement, the only different parts would be the hood, emblems, grill, separate bumper and gravel shield.

I'd love to see some Studebaker offerings. The 46-48 M-series with the vertical grille is a personal favorite of mine. The following one, the R-series is especially attractive and then there's the Champ that shared the front sheet metal with the Lark. Even before these was the gorgeous Coupe Express of 1937 vintage......fabulous.

Since I lean towards heavy construction trucks there  was one  my bucket list and just recently filled by Jamie R owner of moluminum..the mighty Oshkosh F or P series cab. This cab makes a fantastic plow or mixer ...and is now available..heres it is 20181210_172543.thumb.jpg.924fc859c59b3f3730b4a2a2d2ba15c5.jpg

I was impressed how well the parts fit together,  and how smooth it is..usually resin parts have a fine texture..these parts  are glass smooth.

Now to decide..

A white WC-22 or an early 4000 Series Mustang in 1/25 scale.b0576754202177f5c80b7f837fde4a50.jpg.3eabe9e6950dd41a6088bf0c7be7043c.jpg

Good choice on the WC-22, I'll go for that!

An accurate set of 20" 6 lug Budd wheels has been on my wish list a long time.
