What's inside Revell's Dodge Ram VTS pickup kit? Have a look:
Having just looked the kit over, it appears to be well done with a fairly decent parts count. I find it odd that the bed and cab are molded together with a separate piece for the rear cab wall/bed front panel, but that may be due to how the body was molded. At any rate, there's a good looking Viper V-10 underhood, separate front and rear suspension systems (with a nice rear anti-sway bar for the rear), a separate tonneau cover for the bed, and a grille piece which is separate from the hood. It would've been nice if the grille piece was chromed instead of bare plastic, but since this is a full-size truck with a floor-shifted six-speed transmission, I'm willing to overlook the lack of a chromed grille.
In my opinion, the most interesting parts in this kit are the five (yes, five, not four) Goodyear Wrangler RT/S tires. Now, these are totally incorrect for a V-10 powered show truck, but they would be right at home on an SUV or light truck build. The tires have nice sidewall lettering and great tread detail. Theyâ€™re not too knobby like an off-road mud tire, but are more aggressive than a typical on-road radial tire.
Other than that, what you see is what's inside.

Always thought that was kinda cool molding the bed & cab together. Just picked one up, kinda jonesing to do it like the show truck with the trailer & the viper. I yhink this was when Revell was coming into it. Todd
