I've been messing around with this kit for a month or so, and I'm really liking it!
The first thing I finished was the reefer unit- I am not sure if I'll use it on the model yet or not. If not I might make a shipping crate for it and use it as 'cargo' elsewhere. The decals from Modeltruckin' are great- I'd go so far as to consider them a must for anyone who wants to do this kit as a reefer.
I ordered the 2-hole Budds from Ben's Model Parts- I was REALLY happy with these! The only cleanup needed (besides removal of flash from the hub and vent holes) was some minor sanding to the outer surface of one wheel rim. No pinholes or distortion at all! The specific wheels I ordered are meant for AMT tires, but they fit the Moebius tires pretty well, though they're a snug fit. I had to trim some flash and sand the inner diameter of the tires for best fit, and I left the tires out in the sun to heat them up a bit to aid in installation.
The kit will be built about 95% box stock, and I am planning on scratching up some aero skirts for it. I'll be painting it in a standard 'fleet white' (actually Ford Oxford White), as I haven't decided who's company graphics I want to add (if any) and painting it all white will leave my options open for that.
