That must have cost a fortune!!! Look at the box art, there isn't even a fifth wheel on it in the box art.

Let's see inside the box. Is it really a Ford W9000, or did AMT use the Astro cab. I hope this means that you're not calling off your resin cab.

Nice handmade model box for your kit, Ben? Remember the tread on making the decals for this? Shrinkwrap?

Ok Larry figured it out! LOL

I just wanted to see the reactions I'd get. I've always wanted this box and yes, I thought it would be really cool to go with my model whenever I get it built.

Send a photo of this to Round 2 models and see if this inspires them to get off of their duff and offer some new tool model trucks.

 

You forgot to have the French description on the box.

 

Nice Photoshop

LOL, Hi Jacobus. Sorry for tricking some of you. I just wanted to have a fun way of showing off my new toy. I hope to have my Ford W9000 cab ready soon. Eric will be casting and selling it as soon as it is ready. I just want it to be the best one ever offered.
