Dnepromodel has been releasing kits of WWII-era Ford trucks, both military and civilian versions. A new addition to their catalog is the 1939 Ford 3/4 ton pickup truck.
By 1938 Ford pickup trucks featured a new cab and pickup bed. It had bulbous front and rear fenders, and a new oval-shaped grille that completed the makeover. It was rated at 1 ton, and by 1939 the 3/4 ton version was introduced. It had a V-8 engine rated at 60hp, and a wheelbase of 122in. Whilst the 1939 modelís styling did not differ much from the previous year, its brake system has been upgraded to that of a hydraulic one.

Dnepromodelís Ford 0.75 ton Pickup 1939 (#35122) is a full resin kit in 1/35 scale. It contains parts to build one vehicle and also includes additional interior details for the engine and transmission box.

Background information on the vehicle sourced from Ford of West Memphis and Standard Catalog of Light-Duty Ford Trucks 1905-2002.

Has anyone seen any of their newer stuff? I'd like to see their quality. I like the Ford trucks. Regards, Eric

Jeeze, I wish they'd do this in 1/25th scale. But this kit can be bashed with the ICM '39 V300 to make an accurate 1939 Ford 1.5 ton truck.

I agree, softskins are very under-represented in most of the hobby, excepting the "truck guys" in our club. Really need them to make a dio truly come to life.

Too cool...just picked up the ICM V3000 at my LHS the other day. Would certainly love to add this one to the collection.
