does your kit have waterslide decals for the crates or are they the polyfilm self-stickers? i recall hers having the sticker type and i was not happy trying to get them to work.

As a builder more than a collector, the fact it's been built instead of "collecting" dust makes it even better
I remember as a kid seeing them in PR back in the late 70's early 80's and the size was impressive.

Now the question is: Do you have the conversion factor to change from mulepower to horsepower?

Hi...Bill MacDonald ..Now thats a real old model . I advise you to prepare your self , if you ever decide to build the 10 Mule Team Kit . I got worned out by just painting 8 horses , 10 mules is alot of work. So take it easy and drink coffee every 2 hours.........barbo.
I'm guessing my mother got this as a mail-in freeby back in the '50's or early '60's. I doubt I will ever build it.....not really my thing, but interesting nontheless!

i remember watching the old western anthology tv show when i were but a nobbin. some scale livestock for dioramas/trucks would be welcome; better than the dollhouse variety of mixed-scale and badly proportioned and painted stuff we already have (since LGB stuff is 1:22.5 ratio)
(how did they come up with that oddball number? i've read several opinions on how airfix, aurora, and monogram settled on 1/24 and the rest on 1/25 due to methods of scale reduction in modeling; but the 1:22.5 ratio doesn't seem to fit either version easily. if they did it JUST to be different from model cars and trucks, WHY? it doesn't seem to make good business sense to isolate your product unnecessarily.)
