Don't know much about em, but looks pretty cool. Are you doing it up like the box art, or other ideas?

very nice collection!, yeah they are hard to find these days so people tend to go a little crazy with the prices on "rare" kits that why like i said snapped it up as quickly as i could because no doubt someone else will put one up for sale in the next day or so for wayyy more than what i paid for the one i got (market inflation).

Thanks for lookin'!

I had that kit saved in watch list but got a Model King DM800 reissue and another AMT K-100 instead, I got pretty good deals on both so I will have to catch the FLD another time.

I was a teen when 120 was released, I liked the condo sleeper, I tried to convert it to a condo sleeper, we will leave it that, I do have the cab, hood, bumper, and part of the sleeper and side skirts, in pieces :lol:

I would love to see a condo sleeper version be released

i too have a few fond memories involving this kit my late uncle tim built one of these for a company he worked for called Liquid trans corp. i need to try and find some photos of it it was really something else. so i suppose this is sort of a tribute build to him although it probably won't be as good as his :lol: im going to give it the old southern try.

Thanks for lookin'!

the truck he actually drove looked exactly like this one, the model he built was an FLD 120 with a scratch-built tanker hooked to it.
