Maybe Danny at Scenes Unlimited could come to the rescue? He has tires and would only need to carve up some new wheels.

Got these wheels and tires coming in about a week or so......they'll have drum style wheel backs with front and rear hubs..

It doesn't look like it'll have any actual branding, which is no doubt to avoid  licensing. But some of the features look like they belong to a Reitnouer trailer, which I've got no issues with. They're some of the finest built aluminum flatbeds out there, and their Big Bubba and Bigger Bubba are two of the more popular trailers in the heavy flatbed industry. As for it not being branded, I couldn't care less, it looks very promising. I'm already sold on it, will be getting at least one to build as a covered wagon.

Can't please everybody.  if they had made a container, some would say they should have offered a flatbed.  What are you gonna do?

I found the fit of the windshield to be horrible (especially for a new tool). It was impossible to install without scratching up the painted rubber windshield gasket.

It is based on no particular brand but has general elements of many types, and of course, the basic suspension of the previous Moebius semi trailer van kits.

Perhaps not likely but maybe we can hope they've improved proportions on the toylike '68/69 F100 grill for the '67. Fortunately there's a resin caster with a ready replacement ^_^

I like the flatbed. I will get one for sure. I read the whole thread. Did I miss what scale it is? (It looks 1/25 IF the cars are 1/25)

I finally picked up two extra 1970 4x4's and ordered a Fireball Super Swamper kit for one of them.  I've heard only good things about them; alas that quality like that will take time because I want them now now now!  Oh, well.
