Just curious if they still exist??? I was digging around in my stuff the other day and came across the trailer decal set for the Smokey & The Bandit II that I picked up a few years back. It has to be the biggest decal I have ever seen in scale!!! It just got me wondering if anyone knows about what ever happened to the 1:1. Also, did these decals come in a kit originally??? I have always wanted to build one and I think it would be better if I had a whole kit to start!!! Has any of you tried or built one??? KT

Hi, I have one of the kits, It is the old Great Dane trailer with the ribbed sides, So not sure if someone had swapped the contents in the box or not as it was opened when I bought it. So hopefully someone can help both of us out!

No swap occurred. Although inaccurate(real thing was a high cube van, like a moving van), Ertl made the kit based on a Great Dane Dry Van. I have one too. As for the real trucks, I would love the answer to that myself. i would love to know what happened to the KW from the first movie.
