This is the old AMT kit that pops up on Ebay pretty regularly. Been wanting one for a long while and scored two at once. The kit is pretty much your standard AMT kit from the era and very similar to the ALF trucks in that the stryrene is hard and don't like to glue to well , the decals completely blow and the fit is questionable in some areas. But all that just makes for the challenge we all seek right. Well that and no one else does anything close to this so might as well suck it up.
Here's a few pics, well several actually, takes a few to cover the thing. Now for this one to head off to the auction block as promised to SWMBO as part of the deal for getting two.
And how about a pose with some somewhat period fire gear?
As always comments and complaints welcome.

The only comment I might make is that those steam pumpers were fired with coal, rather than wood.
