Resin wishlist for new Dodge D-100 Longbed kit

Recommended Posts

Also- I'm thinking that now the raw material for somebody to produce a 1/25 Ramcharger body is going to be more affordable soon...we just need somebody to step up to master and offer one in resin.

So:

-better side mirrors, that look more like the base model units.

-grilles for different years (and the appropriate hoods and lower valences).

-Ramcharger body (see above)

-4x4 suspension (this is already available from a few different sources).

-dare I dream? a body, grille, hood and bed for a 1981- 92 Dodge Ram

-D200/300 hubcaps and wheels

-Wagon wheels, like the ones found on Warlocks and Macho Wagons

 

Can anybody think of anything else you would like to see?

I'd like to see a crew cab body and interior.  I have a resin club cab body and interior.   Agreed on the Ramcharger, a pre-79 Ramcharger conversion with separate roof would be nice.

Dually fenders... of course, they could probably be adapted from the amt F350 tuff truk fenders , if a caster took up the gauntlet...

and it would be cool to see the '81-up cabs as well  B)

Plus One, on the Grills, and D200/D300 Hub Caps and Wheels.

I had messaged Joseph at Fireball Modelworks about the possibility of developing some items for the Dodge and he said he was too busy with all that he has on his plate to even start new stuff. I am hoping others in the resin community see the opportunity to bring us some goodies.

Way back when, I took the Blazer roof and modified by sectioning it narrower to fit the dodge and shortened the bed to make a replica of my Ramcharger

Yes! Hopefully Fireball Resins can do these caps and possibly some nice 9.50- 16.5   bias ply highway tires and offer them with his excellent 8 lug 16.5" rims he already offers with the F 250 4x4 conversion kit.

Those are the exact hubcaps & tires that I had on my Dodge. I think Fireball Modelworks is tapped out right now, though, so I would hope that maybe somebody else will step up. SEL maybe?

I believe that would be Kris Morgan at MAD. Not sure that it's listed on his website.

i'm not really up on Dodge truck kits of this era, but how about a shortbed? Either a conversion(frame, driveshaft,etc) or bed only

Some updates:

1) there is a caster on eBay who offers the dually fenders. I have seen these listings several times.

2) Hart's Parts does grilles, hoods and tailgates for '72-'73, '74-'76, and '79-'80 trucks. They are reasonably priced, and I can vouch for their quality and service, as I have ordered from them before.
