Excellent, looking forward to this.

Will you offer Ford And Chevrolet grills?

Not sure for the moment.  Probably will just offer the Chevy version.
We are considering doing a multi-slide mould cab body...

Further comments?

Just toying with this idea brought up by UVS... but this will affect our multi-slide mould cab design!



Comments?

Nothing wrong with more options.   But if you can't use the names 'Ford', 'Chevy' etc on the kit, how would you explain these optional designs?

The outline of the logo will spell it all... but with this two cab option, we'll need to change our kit design a little, particularly the canvas top to make this work.  Also, you will have an extra cab as bits/parts too!

The usual official answer - after we did 3d Prototyping, then amendments, sprue layout, QC approval, mould making... probably Q2/17?

Not visible in the picture (but as the bottom of the grille is visibly different I would guess they have designed the two format grilles), so they could just describe the grille mesh shape: square or diamond.

I did not realise the difference in the lights. Excellent.

The grilles are different, the Chevy one is diamond shaped, whereas the Ford one is a square mesh.
Actually there are several configurations of the headlights, so we wanted something which is more common.
Also, the windows can be very different too!

The way we had designed the cabs, you can actually "saw" off the rooftop, window frames, and portion of the cab back panel to make the cab an open-top vehicle too!

It's good to see you getting more invested in this project.  I can't wait to see this kit.

Fantastic - an instant winner!  So much detail in such a small vehicle.  I can't wait for this one!
