Hey guys,
I am thinking of building this kit.
It would be my first attempt at a semi.
Has anyone built this or a variation, is it a good kit.
Thank you.

I have one on the way.
It comes with the truck full detail,trailer detail?, and one rally car.
My plans are to custom paint and decal the rig and trailer to match a class one buggy or Trophy Truck?
Basically an off road race team,if it comes out ok it may end up as my first diorama with figures and a camera crew and pit set up?
But that may be too ambitious.LOL!
