Moebius 67-72 Ford Pick-up news

Recommended Posts

Mike...no I didn't ask about release dates. Given the variables involved in getting a kit to market, my own philosophy is that any date a manufacturer states may well change anyway,

There was a huge scrum of people around the Moebius stand during much of the event; even though I didn't ask, I'll bet others did. Anyone hear anything that would answer Mike's question?

Their info at IHOBBY was 2Q2015. There was a placard by the display models. But, Dave would be the best to answer.

online today, 71 F-100 due out 12/2014, we'll see..

Al,

Can you say where you saw that? I checked Tower Hobbies and they have it as April 2015, Mega Hobby shows it as a pre-order (no release date) and I couldn't find any thing at Modelroundup.

I was hoping that the revisions wouldn't take too long and they would have this kit out soon, but who knows?

Interesting, it appeared that the 69 short bed, was farther along in the release process.

Actually no. Believe it or not, all the parts for both of the first versions have been tooled at the same time.

This Idea was based on the Retro Box Art that Sven posted. The only other Artful Rendition that I have seen was. When the First when the Announcement was made that a 71 F-100 long bed was actually going to be made. I do not recall any Box Artwork for the 71, Although there may be some in the advertising at the Moebius website. However I don't visit that site often. Do you happen to know who will be doing the Box Art for Moebius, when the real product hits the store shelves?

I believe I understood that all the parts for all the Bumpside versions (both those announced and other future variations) are being tooled before the first version of the kit will be released.

This is consistent with how several model companies (Revell and Moebius included) are doing new product development today, and is one reason why kits now take what seems like "so long" to get to market the first time.

I'm mostly interested in the short bed/six banger version, is it on the same schedule?

Will we be seeing any test builds of the actual kit parts any time soon?

I wonder how many advance kits of the short bed 69 F-100 are out there, & who do you have to know to get on THAT list....:-)
