Welcome to Masterbilt Models!
UPDATE December 10, 2016 – River Point Station has posted on their web site announcing the shipment of 2008 Ford F series regular cab pickup models are due to arrive in the U.S. on Monday, December 12. It will likely take at least a week or two to clear customs and transported to the RPS location in Warwick, RI. We expect arrival at our location before year end. Please note that 3 models (#538-5058.95 Canadian Pacific Hi-Rail, #536-5057.12 - Slime Green, and #538-5057.61 Municipal Water Authority models) were canceled, presumably because orders didn’t meet production minimums.
UPDATE December 7, 2016 - We are now sold out or oversold on almost all models from our original allocation of this production run. We continue to try to source additional models from distributors and will update the web site as we receive any news of additional models.
UPDATE December 5, 2016 - We are now oversold on the #RPS-536-5155.01 white, dual rear wheel models; if you have one of these on order and you are interested in substituting a #RPS-536-5195.01 white, dual rear wheel model with color-matched type 1 cap we'll substitute for no additional cost. Please contact us via email if you are interested.
UPDATE December 4, 2016 - The latest information we have is that the 2008 Ford F series regular cab pickup models are awaiting shipment from China. This run is
almost completely sold out. We anticipate shipping, barring any unforeseen issues, in late December/early January. As soon as our shipment from River Point Station is confirmed we'll send notifications to all customers who have outstanding pre-orders. You may cancel any outstanding pre-order prior to shipping. We do ask if you intend to cancel your pre-order for any reason to so as early as possible.
River Point Station has sent dealers notification of a production run of all new regular cab models of their 2008 Ford F-350 pickup truck models. We are currently offering the opportunity for you to pre-order these models; pricing is currently not finalized but we've posted prices comparable to those listed on Walthers' web site. We can't guarantee pricing until announced by River Point Station.
This production run includes four basic variations - regular cab with single rear wheels, regular cab with hi-rail setup and single rear wheels, regular cab with dual rear wheels, and an HD (heavy duty) dual rear wheel version with flared front fenders. We have photos of production samples posted (check the 1/87 Scale Models section of our catalog); we will update them with actual samples from stock as soon as possible. Various Ford factory color schemes will be available and some models have wither a Type 1 or Type 2 cap. This production run also introduces new accessory packs (chrome ladder set, spare parts set, etc.) and River Point Station has confirmed there will be delivery of Type 2 caps not available earlier from the crew cab production run. Delivery is expected in late 2016.
We still have a handful of the special quantity purchase of River Point Station 2007 Ford Expedition models with "Sail & Power LLC Dockside Services" paint scheme. We are still offering them at steep discounts and they won't last much longer. These are extraordinary models as can be seen in the photos and make very good customizing or kitbashing projects.
