Mini Farmside Outtake: 1952 Studebaker R2 Stake Bed

6-8-2013 010 (800x533)

OK, so Mini CCs are not really getting much attention from you, the viewer, but I thought it worth showing how diverse the scale model arena is getting lately. Who ever would have expected one of these ’50s Studebakers to be available in anything but a $100+ Brooklin Models variant?

Currently an orange ’52 R2 pickup is also available through M2, along with a ’56 F100 pickup, ’58 Chevy Apache tow truck and ’57 Fargo COE stake bed (I kid you not). Doors and hood open, and all models come in a clear plastic display case. Not bad for six bucks! I think some vintage 1/64-scale Farmall, Ford and John Deere tractors would go perfectly with this. You could create your own Ed Stembridge mini-farm…
