looks like we are ok.
This started as the Autocar dumptruck,(extended frame,third axle,front wheels posable, scratchbuilt winch,tower,tool boxes,drivers door opens)AMT lowboy(narrowed nose,wooden deck) Cat ( scratchbuilt rops,a little weathering)
This was completed in late 80's,so were probably original issue kits.
Thanks for looking,
(For those squinty-eyed folks, yes, the white tags on the Alaskan Hauler,A-64-B, and Challenge mixer kits do say $10.00)

Were these published in a magazine at one time? They are vaguely familiar.
$10 kits ! Yikes!

I don't think this ever made the magazines, although it did make the rounds to several contests--------
Of course,several people have had similar combinations over the years.
Those 10.00 kits have a sad story attached to them. I bought them at a show in the early 90s from a guy that had lost his eyesight in an industrial accident.

Lost his sight.. tragic. By them going to another modeler, the previous owner's vision will carry on.

They were engine and chassis started whenI got them and other than soaking the a-64 chassis in Superclean they haven't been touched.
As tis oft said" He couldda done that!"
The A-64 is destined for a DD12v71 and a Phil Jensen style Holmes wrecker.
The Kenworth/Challenger Mixer is another story-- I'm a little more intimidated by the rarity of the kit.
