Well, it had been almost 35 years since I touched one of these kits and to find the available once again was a pleasant surprise. So, after busting the rust loose and being stuck in a hotel room in Chicago area for several months, a trip to Hobby Lobby turned up the old Diamond Reo. With no real tools other than the bare bones basics, it turned out decent. With what looks like it may be living in hotels for quite some time due to work, it surely beats turning into a TV addict.
With the Reo done, I could not resist and picked up the AMT Freightliner COE. And the cab fit is still just as bad as it was 30 some years ago..LOL.
Nice trip down amnesia lane. Thanks for a great site. I look forward to reviewing and posting.
