Moebius 1971 Ford Ranger Review by Rick HopkinsPosted: July 28, 2015

This review is for the new release of the Moebius 1/25th scale 1971 Ford Ranger pick up truck.
This kit is well worth the cost, it’s super detailed in every way! I’ve built three of these kits now and all of them fit together very well with the exception of the tailgate halves (need to sand the two halves before fitting together) and the wind-shield fits a little tight between the roof and cowling (be careful so as not to snap the clear plastic.)
Also, the body texture itself is a little rough, it’s not real smooth like most models I’ve built in the past. to fix that, all you need to do is spray on a couple coats of primer and sand it before you do final paint. On my two kits you see here, I scratch built two different camper shells **not included in kit**
The kit is very accurate to the real truck… I had a real one of these back in the 80’s and this kit is dead on! Great job Moebius!
