Just noticed the other day that Tower Hobbies is show a Mid-May release for a Moebius 1956 Chrysler 300B. Did I sleep through someone ever mentioning this kit being released?

They also list the '71 Ford P/U for Mid-February.

As always all release dates are tentative, your results may vary.

Interesting...hadn't seen any mention of that anywhere. Nice if it does happen, the '56 was a better looking car than the '55, IMO...

Not a big stretch to make a 56 out of the 55, as the differences between the 2 are subtle

Me personally I would rather they make an Imperial instead

I'd prefer a Windsor, to modify into Richard Zocchi's lead slead, but the '56 300 is a better starting point than the '55.

Anybody need a '55...or two?

I emailed Moebius to confirm.

Yes, the '56 will be out mid 2013.

I thought that the 55 was great, this is even better. I can't wait for this kit to come out.

Not a surprise. Moebius is doing as many variations from each tool as they can. I'm happy to see they are resourceful enough to be doing this. It means they'll be around for the long haul and it's no secret if we support them with our pocket book, good things will come!

I am just finishing the 55. It does seem to be a possible summer 2013 release.

I missed this, but I'm not surprised. I sort of saw this one coming.

Yes...a T&C and a New Yorker convertible would be welcome, too.

I like the idea of a '58 DeSoto / Plymouth / Dodge / Chrysler / Imperial . So long as it includes the Bendix Electro-Jector as an option !

I'd love to see them do a '55 or 6 DeSoto. I have to say I'm not too keen on the '55 and '56 Chryslers, but I'll buy 'em if it will nudge the fine folks at Moebius in that direction. B)

That Imperial sure sounds nice! Is there a website or phone number where we could contact Mobeius? These are ALL great suggestions, HOPEFULLY we can get a few more pops out of this great mold!!!!

It'll be out sometime this year. It's confirmed. They do a poor job (IMHO) of updating their website. They've got several other things to get out first, like the ProStar and several sci-fi kits. I haven't even seen the box art for the 56 300B yet, so it's still a ways off... It'll be kit #1207, MSRP $29.99, that's all the info that's out there so far.

I don't think that there has been any big announcement made yet, However,our wholesale customers have known that Moebius models is producing a new 1956 Chrysler 300 B kit for some time now. The tooling mock-up has been in our hands for a couple weeks now and we have reviewed it and feel that with a few minor refinements, it should be ready for production.

Here are a few shots of the mock-up - There are some details missing on this mock-up because they are the same as in the 1955 kit.

This new kit will have the new 1956 body, with new separate - correct for 1956 door handles, new tail lights & rear bumper, some additions under the hood as well as a new set of hood hinges. The interior has a new dash with the push button shift pad, the exhaust pipes are also revised

I would expect that this kit will be available during the 3rd quarter of this year..
