The Aussie version of the Western Star doesn't so I would guess not. Chuckyr is very knowledgable on Italeri kits he's a member here and is around regularly. Also try the website Public Fotki/model trucks under Italeri they usually show pics of of kit box, instructions, and parts trees hopefully that will help.

I have the "US Truck with Baywatch" trailer, It Is the Western Star???
and it only had the Aussie Dash set up
It would be nice if they included both sets in kits like that
I must say, I am surprised at "Florida" License plates on an Aussie Semi!!
Plus, Baywatch was from LA County California, not Florida!!

They Could have used Hawaii License plates as they did move there for the last year
or 2.

Yes I know that also did a One-Time appearance Down Under, but...........
