Well, they are finally here!

After 12+ years, the old Cheez-Cast '66-'77 Ford Bronco resin kits are available once again!

The first five kits will be sold on eBay, as auction-types of items.

The rest of the First Editions (of 50), will be selling for $50, plus $5 shipping/handling.

The web site http://www.ResinBronco.com should have all the ordering information on it very soon.

They will be drop shipped straight from the resin manufacturer, so the there should be a short turn around time (we are hoping for a one-two week time frame at the most).

Thanks so much for all of your interest, patience, and support with this endeavor.

This is a curbside kit, no motor, and at this time, no rims or tires.

A good donor kit is the Revell/Monogram '80 Ford Bronco kit, for the rims and tires.

I have started modifying the prototype, changing around the dash, and some of the interior.

So who's the super-secret mystery resin caster? I'm sure they'd like a little acknowledgement for all the work they did to get decade plus old molds and masters back in a condition so they could be used again.

Nice work Gregg! I have one of the old original Cheesecast Broncos but definitely want a pickup version! My high school had a dark green pickup that they used to plow snow from their lot. The coaches also used it to make teams do a forced run. There's a photo in my yearbook of the coach sitting in the back bed watching the runners behind him. I need to duplicate that pickup!

Let us know if anyone hits that Buy It Now Button! :lol:

OKAY. Great that this is being made available again, HOWEVER why are you going to Ebay when you have E-modelcars? Seriously Gregg, It is disingenuous of you to advocate us using it and you don't ? :(

Mike, after all the work, time, money, effort, etc. that I put into EMC, no one wants to use it, I give up on it. Probably will let it just lapse and forget about it. I tried my best to make it work, and no one, besides a very few, (thanks to those who did help, I think you were one of them, Mike), but I have to move on.

Thanks Gregg, I am in for one now and another when you have them in 1/24 as well. I remember seeing these at a couple of shows in Wisconsin way back when and meant to get one then but didn't and thanks to you, I can!

I will have to check the website daily to make sure I am one of the 50!

If you go to one of the uninhabited Hawaiian islands only accessible by a small light boat, then wade to shore and work your way through the sugar cane fields, you will come upon a small bamboo hut where they make the kits!

So why do you suppose the secrecy and subterfuge?

Paranoia, i would assume.
