I guess no ones knows the truth about where the Front Range Geeps came from. Does anyone remember a new company that was starting up called "East Coast Models" HO Scale. They were advertising is Mainline Modeler during the early 1980's about the new GP-7's and GP-9's they were going to come out with. They paid Fred Becker to make the molds and models for them, then Fred filed bankruptcy and hid the good molds. Later he started Front Range Products afterward with the ECM geep molds. Fred was a con-man that lived off other people including his employee's, he screwed everybody anyway he could.
