Does anyone have information on this one? I know it's in 1/32nd scale, but the truck looks super cool. It just arrived at Model Round Up.

The price is hefty, but it brings all those goodies, enough to make a diorama out of it.

I have the old Revell History makers issue of the kit. It's huge and may never build it. A year ago you could sell them for $200 easy.......maybe I should have....but I did not think RM would ever re-issue this!!

Virgil,
I built one of these quite a few years ago when it was a repopped Revell kit (history Makers). It was inexpensive and somewhat nosthalgic (since I remember them in their original kit form when I was a kid) so ,although it wasn't my typical area of interest, I built it 'box stock', painting it the colors suggested on the kit, and found it quite simple but satisfying.......I still like it, and keep it in a dust-free cabinet.
The doors open, front wheel bogie steers (poseable), and the missile launching mechanism articulates and raises for firing.

I know some one with a slightly lower price.
I hope to get one.
Not really into Military, but that one is 1/32 instead of the regular 1/35 of military kits.

Thank you, and Clifford that looks great. It sounds like it's a wonderful kit. I'm holding off on it right now because of the price, but I might be able to get one for the Holidays.

I have one here that I built years ago. Michaels had it on a sidewalk sale for only 10.00! There's a bunch of working features! The front bogie steers, all suspensions articulate, the missile cradle raises and lowers, landing gear on the trailer raises and lowers and the cab doors open. The only thing I have left to do on mine is put the decals on, if they're still good? I'll probably start watching for a new set. It's a really cool model and was really fun to build!

The airframe of that missile would make a cool land speed racer. ;)
