1/43 scale tow truck

Hello,
My name is Dan Silvestru I am from Romania and I made resin models ( Dan Models company )
This year I want to start a new range the 1/43 scale resin model car.
I was think to start with some old tow truck.
Because I am new in the 1/43 scale market I need your opinions regarding this trucks.

Dan; Brooklin made a 1940's Dodge but it was very limited and expensive. I've always wanted one. Chevys and Fords have been done by everyone. Internationals, Dodges and other 1950's truck that are seldom seen would be nice.

Dan; US Model Mint (Brooklin) makes some nice 1/43 trucks. I would buy a 1/43 Mack to pull their trailers.

My initial project for the 1/43 scale ( as the title of the topic ) is 1/43 scale GMC truck range starting with 3100 to big 7000.
From tow truck to heavy duty truck all using same cab and COE cab.
Please see some examples

So your opinion is to made the Mack H 67 at 1/43 ? I have documentation for many 1950-1970 models and I hope made some of theems ! For example this Autocar ( my model is at 1/50 scle ) but I can made at 1/43 too

Dan, your work here is phenomenal.

Amazing details top, and underside (not that I'm a truck expert...)

Anyway, typically 1:43rd stuff is a lot harder to sell in the US than "real" 1:64 like AW, M2, and GL.

In my opinion, it would be amazing to have some of these trucks you want to make to be in 1:64 so they will fit nicely with guy's collections.
Especially trucks to go WITH cars like a car carrier or a tow truck.

I'm far from a diecast marketing expert, but I'm my 50 year of playing with toys, 1:64 is what I would buy.

Best of luck and thank you for your fine photos!
