Impressive. Looks like I might have to get one, or two.

Can't wait to hear the whining over this one! :rolleyes:

Dang man! Do you have a tunnel to Japan in your back yard or something? It seems like you always have your hands on the newest Japanese/Chinese kit right as they come out.

I now see why it has a high price tag. This kit is something . Detail looks from the pictures . The amount of pieces is stunning . My only beef with this would be the black plastic for the body , but that can be painted over.

Looking forward to the mailman coming next week! I ordered mine on March 31 from Hobbyeasy in China and they should be here soon.

Great service and with shipping the two kits were less than $60 each.

I'm not really into trucks in scale, so I won't be getting one. I've had trucks for "daily drivers" for the last 20 years, and it sure comes in handy every once in awhile.

That's a great looking kit. I'm anxious to see how it goes together.

It was pointed out by James that the tires are OEM correct

I wonder how much that factored in to the cost of the kit?

I noticed that in your pix. Hankook tires would also have been correct for OEM.

From what I see, I only really see a couple of things that are off to my eye. One is the seats. They look a little "blocky" to me. The other is the tie rod. It looks more like a tie rod assembly from a '99-'07 GM 4x4 rather than a Super Duty Ford. Granted, I'm only going from the pix of the parts still on the tree. I'll be finding out soon enough, should have mine in a few weeks when Big 4 in Indy gets them in. Yeah, I know I mentioned in the other thread I most likely wasn't going to get one, but it's just too neat of a kit to pass on.

Bill, the seats caught my eyes right of the bat, and that is what I noticed as well

I saw the kit today at the car show and it looks great!!! The only thing I didn't like about the kit is that it is molded in black and will make it a little harder to paint orange......... B)

Wow. Most impressive.

Soon as I have the money, I'm getting one. I think the real trucks are plug-ugly, but this is so nicely done, the effort deserves support. I'm sure I can find a good way to use it for a creative display, too.

I wouldn't think one molded in black would be any harder to paint orange then say, Barbie Doll Pink ?

:P

It's ok they roam in a pack and tend to stay deep in the threads that are over 15 pages long. I think we should be able to hold our ground 'till morning.

LOL!!! Great analogy!

While the seats do indeed look to need some re-shaping, I think as far as pictures show, it looks really nice. Pricey, but nice. Aside from the already mentioned seats, which should be beaten to death by noon this afternoon, I think it's a great new entry into our hobby. Please folks, encourage this manufacturer! Don't split hairs over trim thickness or valve cover engraving. I'd love to see what off-beat topic is next!
