I really like the look of this truck but the lack of detail made it a regreatable buy if I knew it was that close to a snap kit I would have found something else so just trying to make a cool truck out of a bad model lol

i definitely did not pay over 15 bucks for this kit new from the local hobbytown and i feel sorry for those that paid more i guess i should be happy. im enjoying all the work going into this one im way out of my normal box stock builds with just little custom touches credit too all the awsome builds ive seen here and the great tips inspired me to go outside the box
