I have first test shots of the Great Dane reefer. I've built two of them - there are a few fit issues to be addressed but for the most part it goes together well.
Here are a few shots of them - the one with extended landing gear had one leg of the landing gear that got bent over and not noticed until after I'd put the camera away - it has been fixed..
If everything goes according to plan kits should ship from the factory around the end of April and be on store shelves by end of May.

Ok, you've convinced me! I'll get one. It looks like it's a really nice kit. I think Moebius has another winner!

Only the front and rear walls will be chrome.
There will be decals - one option being Erb Transport as they run lots of Great Dane reefers and lots of International Tractors - this will give you the trailer to match your LoneStar if you chose to paint it in Erb livery. There will be a second option - Honestly I haven't seen it yet so I can't say what it'll be.
I'll turn one of the test shots over and shoot the bottom of it tomorrow - try to get photos posted in the next couple days for those who want to see what would be the greasy parts.
