I just got my order for these, and I had to turn to on getting one of them built up... I have to say, this is a very long awaited offering, and I am VERY pleased with it... There was a little bit of flash here and there, but over all, I can't complain about anything... It went together very quickly, too... One of the easiest kits you'll ever build... And with the option to build it with camber or without, makes it even better... The extra frame rails will come in handy for a scratch built flatbed, as the rails are the hardest parts to fab up!! But that's another build thread...ūüėĄ

I'll be building this one with the cambered option, and will be using super singles...

Love the box art...

It came with a little bit of flash... Not something typical of Moebius, but I'm ok with it... It's very easily removed...

Got the frame rails in and fastened to the deck...

I decided to cut out the back end....

Assembled the suspension and the tool boxes... All of which only took about an hour to do... It only took me three hours to get to paint...

The camber is very subtle, but it is cambered...

Paint was pretty straight forward, as only one color was used... I just need to paint the air bags and rear dock bumpers....

The bulkhead and mud flaps...

The super singles they offer go together very easily, as well... I added a little tape to keep them from coming apart, should I not have glued them together properly...

I think they came out real nice...

It really looks good behind my Lonestar....

After decaling and a makeshift load for photos, I think it looks quite good....

Looks good behind my Lonestar, my Prostar, even my 579...

I can't wait to use these frame rails for my next scratch build...
