Another wheel that would be nice to have. The 19.5" wheel is correct for '56-'66 Ford and Dodge. Mainly found on 4x4's. It was done by very accurately by a die cast company in 1/16 on the '59 F 250 4x4, but we could use it in 1/25.

A BIG +1 on this one. Anything IH is welcome.

I like IH trucks too.  I have a diecast of a 54, I think in came with the craftsman lawnmower in the bed.  I have had it taken apart for quite awhile thinking I'm going to cast the parts in it.  I also have a diecast travel all that has some kind of Briggs and Stratton engine diorama in the back.  I would like to turn this into a resin subject too.

I grew up on a farm in Indiana.  My Dad had a 56 pickup.  It had the straight six.  It had three speed on the column.  It was also a 4 wheel drive, it had two gear shift levers on the floor as well and manual lockout hubs on the front.  Man, if only he was a car guy and would have kept it.  He traded it in 1970 for a heavy duty Chevy pickup.

This 6 hand hole lock ring wheel used in the 40's, 50's and early 60's  in 1/25 scale.

Drop Danny at Scenes Unlimited a line and see what he may have in the works. He has expanded his line of truck wheels and tires recently and this could be something he is looking at.

I would like to see a few resin kits .....Like Western star Cabover or a Peterbilt 352H 110 cab or  a Autocar AT64F Hood /grill in 1/24th scale . I know that AIMT makes one in 1/25 but I want it to go with the Italeri western star.

Bringing it back to the top again, the  60's version of the WF cabover in 1/25. A 3D printer should be able to copy this very nice version already done years ago in railroad scale.  Now that the 70's AMT re issues are plentiful as donors, these will SELL!

Just found a super impressive 1/15 scale WC 22. Hopefully we get  a good quality resin in 1/25 soon!Fumby Street Motors 1957 White WC-22 Stake Truck 1:15 MIB Ltd Edition All Green | eBay

Yes that Fumby Street Motors model is very nice. A friend of mine has one. 
I created a 3D computer model of a WC 22 several years ago, but I don’t know if it’s suitable for 3D printing. It would most likely need a lot of work to get it ready. 
It would be a nice subject to have in 1/25 scale.

It's one of my favorites.
