New kits of old rigs?

29 posts in this topic

Posted (edited) · Report post

I've seen quite a few threads based around wants of new rigs. But not too many about the classics. A Peterbilt 281 would be a great addition to somebody's lineup. Looks cool as-is, and of course more than a few would end up as Duel trucks. So... would you guys like to see a newly-tooled kit of an old truck? And if so, which one(s)? Don't hold back, now!

A few I'd like to see (please forgive my Binder Bias...)

YES!

Especially the B model Mack and the Diamond T, seem like no-brainers for new kits!

LOVE that Brockway!

And any IH in scale works for me. :D

Can't believe it- forgot a couple more of mine-

Early F-series Cabover ('56 shown, any year '38 to '56 would do, though.)

And a Big Job F-series (or T-series if it's a Tandem)

Hey Chuck, your images are not coming through for me. I like the older rigs as well. The new stuff tends to start looking like everything else on the road. Just BIGGER!!!!

Have to agree with everyone else, anything truck old or new. Also would like to see anything in a modern day Freightliner.

Yas, a Freightliner Cascadia, Coronado, or M2 would be very welcomed! Especially the Cascadia. They're everywhere!
