Kevin, colors noted, thanks, buddy!
Rick, I was wondering if the 4270 was in line with the 4070A as far as availability... and if there storys were similar.
This is what I love about this site. Everyone has been sooo helpful in my quest for information on these kits and the encouragement to bring them back to their glory really is inspiring! The blue and the yellow trucks have been torn down and I've started cleaning up 'blues' frame. I have to build six new tank mounts because all but one of the originals was unsalvagable... I'll use it for a pattern, thank The Maker for Evergreen and Plastruct! I'm thinking of a red frame, wheels and tanks with a white over blue body...
You know, I realized when I started pulling trucks out of the boxes that I was sitting on a veritable goldmine of OOP, classic, desirable kits... I told my friend what the unbuilt versions were worth and what the 4070b might bring on eBay as-is and he still quoted me a purchase price of.... hang on to your butts............... $50.00! It's now ok to curse me and slander my name, if you must... ;^)

Everything model related is kind of on hold right now. My GF and I are in the process of moving into a house that we'll be remodeling and buying on contract and you know how that can get in the way of leisure time activities. The good news is that it's three bedroom and I'll have my very own workshop, again!

those transtar II cabovers should be paired together hauling matching gravel trailers
