Didnt Volvo quit producing these because they were a slow seller? I remember it being their venture into the 'conventional' market.

I know they were having electrical problems in the sleeper. I drove several different Volvo's and each one would have something wrong with it.

Volvo killed it because it was to heavy , this is what I read but I still think it would be a cool model kit.

We could even simplify their work... Lets have a reissue of the VN670 or 780 with an engine and poseable front wheels. But any recent truck would be welcome such as the 880.

I would love to see these come back, I was out of my modeling phase when they were issued the first time.

All the Volvos had problems. Bunk heaters were an issue and something to do with the steering due to the set back axle. I even heard of a dash falling into a guys lap while he was driving.

Italeri is listening or back in touch with the market, because their all new Iveco Stralis kit, again has an engine included, long live the "old concept" kits!

;^)

You are more likely to see an 880 as a resin kit than from Italeri.  Italeri will offer a totally new American subject.  But not announce it before 2014 at the earliest.

That would be fine with me ,I like working with resin kit , as far as a new American subject goes I can't see them doing anything else then a Peterbilt.

I've gotten the impression that the next one will be a Freightliner, Western Star or a trailer.

Italeri will not offer a cabover.  They are only interested in representing typical American type trucks.

Hopefully not with an atypical generic type chassis this time...

I'd STILL like to see a Kenworth T-2000. Personally I think it's a BEAUTIFUL truck, too bad it was discontinued!

Eisenhauer X2 or Eisenhauer Freigther would be a great model kit.
