'32 Ford pickup cab in resin?

Hi all,

I was wondering if anyone knows whether there's a '32-'34 Ford pickup cab being cast. I have a "crew cab" version from R&R, but would like to build a regular cab. The AMT/Lindberg kits are so scarce these days.

Thanks in advance,

Don't know of any resin '32 Ford pickup cabs or kits. There was a guy making them 2 years ago at NNL EAST. Unfortunately, I bought one and it's just junk! Never heard of the guy since.
For years I've been going to do a master of a '32 Ford pickup for the Revell kit, but usually, I spend 3 to 4 months mastering something, only to have the kit reissued with THAT same body. :(

Well, you don't have long to wait--the New Hawk Model Company announced at this year's RCHTA the reissue of both versions of the Lindberg/AMT '34 Ford pickup.

Now, for the easy part! The only difference between a '32 and a '34 Ford truck cab is that for 1933, an extra, wide raised molding was added to the back of the cab, above the beltline molding, for the purpose of strengthening the sheetmetal back panel, so that it wouldn't drum and crack at the seat-mounting boltheads. For a '32 Cab, simply file away this wide molding, and you are there!
