Long long ago I built a Matchbox?AMT boxed Kenworth Cabover "Papa truck" transporter and an AMT/ERTL Mack R conventional. I managed to get both together without much fuss and even less paint, but I was 14 and happy (apart from the AMT decals disintegrating when placed within 10 feet of water).
It's great to see the Round 2 re-releases in the LMS and I have the Fruehauf beaded van trailer and the K-123 cabover aside for collection at my next visit. Any tips or hints on what I should look out for on the build of either?
I'd love if the old Budweiser decals were still available...
I'd also like to add a conventional or 2 to the scale truck stop in the future, and I've heard a few horror stories on some of the old AMT kits. I'd do the Mack again, but 1; it's not available and 2; it doesn't come with a sleeper cab.
Would you recommend a Kenworth or Peterbilt Conventional? I'm looking for the least fussiest build with decent fit if possible. The LMS has the White Road Boss in stock as well, any good?
Lastly, what are your opinions of the Revell Peterbilt and Kenworth Conventional kits? I see them on sale for a decent price including shipping.
