Meng Models are at Nuremburg toy fair to “pick-up” new business with their new Ford F-350 kit in 24th scale

The 65th Spielwarenmesse International Toy Fair Nürnberg sees many model making companies from all around the world – it is an important show so many model distributors are showcasing their best new product – as is MENG with their previous kits and an all new F-350 pickup in 24th scale!

They have elaborately prepared for this show.  – you can see each of their very nicely finished models in isolation showing them off to their greatest advantages- MENG was not content just to have their old kits on display but they have announced an all new modern kit that will make a few different corners of the modelling fraternity very interested..

The brand new product announced In the 65th Spielwarenmesse International Toy Fair Nürnberg is the Ford F-350 Pickup truck in 1/24th scale!
This kit looks like it could have some great potential – a very detailed car with the same detail of their 1/35th scale kits could indeed be a game-changer and have companies like Tamiya looking over their shoulders. The scope to detail this up as a deer shootin’ truck from the backwoods of the USA – with a dead deer on the front, a gun rack and  some primer paint on one of the replacement panels!

The press release states…

“In 1999, Ford Motor Company released a new F-Series pickup, the Ford F-350 Super Duty, which was powered by a diesel engine. Its size and payload were increased to meet customer needs of special multi-purpose transportation, towing and hauling and other use. After many years of development, Ford F-350 Super Duty has become a top-ranked luxury pickup with heavy load capacity and high level configuration.
This 1/24 scale Ford F-350 Super Duty plastic model kit replicates the accurate exterior of this muscle truck. The precision and complex engine bay is fully represented. Two options of the wheel hubs and side steps are provided. A movable tailgate and a bed extender are included. Realistic metal plated parts are provided for the engine grille and wheel hubs. Metal reflective mirror film is provided for the rear view mirrors. Length: 277mm Width: 112mm”
MENG must be congratulated on the displays and awards for their models which are winners not just here but in a lot of modeller's hearts - these are some of their excellent kits that people have really raved over in the short history of this company so far..

So that is all we have new from MENG – we will show you more when we get it – if you want to meet the team MENG is positioned in the 65th Spielwarenmesse International Toy Fair Nürnberg (Jan. 29 – Feb. 3, 2014) at the stand E-41 in Hall 7.
