Default Roc Hobby Magnum - 1/18 Ford F1 RTR

Another model is on the way from one of the most prolific RC crawler manufacturers ever.

A 1948-1950 Ford F1 (First Generation F series) that uses Roc Hobby/FMS's proven aluminum 'C' channel frame and their Chevy K10/Glacier wheels and tires.
Tires are 19.2 x 13.5 x 56mm Cooper Discoverer tires.
No official sneak peak or promotion has been seen anywhere in the normal channels except
it was available as a Pre-Order on several sites in the UK, Australia, Belgium.

Since stock Ford F1 trucks were two wheel drive only, this makes it a truck outfitted with factory optional "Marmon-Herrington All Wheel Drive."

Now this truck is available, showing in stock as I write this: https://www.mcmracing.com/en/home/18...it-ROC11814RTR

Roc Hobby Magnum 1/18th RTR ROC11814

Roc Hobby is proud to introduce our latest 2022 product; the 1:18 Magnum, a highly detailed RC scale vehicle modeled on a popular post-war design, featuring a spacious and comfortable cab with realistic dashboard and seats.
A wide sill extends under the door and a flat one-piece front windshield, coupled with a larger rear window, provides a more wider view. Put your hand on the five chrome-plated cooling grilles where you can explore the
cleverly-integrated turn signal lights. The spacious rear cargo compartment and openable tailgate make loading and unloading of cargo convenient.

Roc Hobby 1:18 Magnum, a classic scale off-road vehicle from yesteryear ready to impress RC enthusiasts with its hard-core chassis, suspension and classic appearance. Equipped with a strong and reliable aluminum alloy beam,

I say Roc Hobby/ FMS/ EazyRC is a prolific manufacturer because they churned out this list of trail trucks, crawlers and super scale replicas
in rapid fire.

Did some calculations, and if this 1/18 model represents an 1/1 Ford F1 with a standard 6 1/2 foot bed and a 114 inch wheelbase, I get a scale of 1/14.7735

That's 1:15 scale.
