I agree with the International S, and the Mack R.  (I would buy quite a few copies of any Mack they released.)  I will probably get at least two copies of any reissues, just to add to the stockpile.  Keep bringing them out, and I will keep buying them.

Aren't the W925 molds gone? If they are, no mixer or Alaskan hauler. I think the 27' trailer is the same one that is in the double header kit.

What I would like to see reissued:

 

ERTL     International Transtar II Coe

              International C4070 Coe (moldings altered for the Transtar II ???)

              Great Dane Reefer Trailer

 

amt:        Peterbilt 359 "Little window" (moldings altered for laterversion 359 !?)

               Wilson livestock trailer

 

Let's hope that there will be again some re-issues (like there have been several over the last years). Yep, the Transtar  was converted to the Transtar II as was the transtar 4270 to the Transtar 4300 kits.

I highly doubt that the International S-Series both the 2575 and the two 2674's will ever be reissued as Ertl thought that they did not sell well. This also goes for the 1/32 9670 kit. I wish the would reissue them but I don't see it happening. But since you are making a wish list of reissued trucks why not some New trucks Such as The 9670 in 1/25 scale,or the last cab overs that Kw & peterbilt made. evn some of the Newer trucks. would be nice. Thank you Moebuis for the LoneStar and the ProStar truck kits. Now if the other model companys like Autoworld and Revell-Monogram would follow suit. ( not Revell of Germany)

I heard from a friend of a friend that some of the molds for the IH Transtar II and the S-series were

left sitting outside the factory and badly damaged when they were sent to China. So we might

never hear of these ones again. That would be sad indeed.

I'm on board with the cornbinders F and S series (I'd buy several)  The Autocar dump would be good as well.

 

Actually, wonder why it never occurred to AMT (et al) to box and sell just the vocational parts of these kits kind of on the order of their accessory parts packs they released long ago, I imagine they'd sell. I'd for sure grab up half dozen of the AC's Montone dump box.

And the Massey Ferguson 1155 and the International Harvester 1466 with Semi Mounted Plow and Farm Wagon for each one.

The John Deere 4430 was last out in the late 90's or early 2000's together with the John Deere 310 Backhoe.

I agree with previous posts, I think AMT should separate the trucks from the bodies and sell each in its own box. 

 

Wrecker

Montone dump body

Challenge mixer

Race car hauler

Snow plow and dump bed

Box truck delivery with lift gate

Flat bed with side boards

Was it the Tyrone Malone transport body for race trucks?

 

Can anyone explain to me why AMT did the Holmes wrecker in 1/43 but never in 1/25?

Round 2 has done a great job of reissuing the old truck kits.

Since around 2002 when I got back into truck models I have been able to purchase most of them.Both 359 kits, K100, 4300, pete 352, dozer, payhauler 350, westenstar, road boss, diamond reo, ford short hauler, titan, astro, freightliner,,chrome tanker, both 40 foot van trailers, flat bed, lowboy, paystar dump and cement trucks. Thats an almost complete amt line up.I think even the fire trucks reissue fits this time line. Some of those were pretty rare kits.I haven't purchased a ford flat bed or race car truck yet. 

We even got a few more thanks to stevens international-4 macks, ford C tractor, double trailers, autocar tractor, US mail,  autocar dump, freightliner sd,  pete 352.  I'm happy to be able have got all these old kits.

 

I figure around 2/3 of them have been reissued

 

There is only a few that haven't been reissued- Kenworth Wmodels,aerodyne and the useless aerodynamic conventional .We still need the transtarII and S series,dump trailer,reefer van, cattle trailer, and furniture vans.I cant think of any more that haven't been reissued

 

All in all a pretty good list don't you think

 

Shoot even got the first truck kit produced reissued-dodge L700

 

Revell has stepped up and reissued some desirable kits,but they are lagging behind round2's commitment to bringing back the truck kits

 

What we need id these guys to take the moebus lead and give us new subjects

Well AMT didn't do the tractors, plows and farm wagon trailers for them, they were originally Ertl kits, but AMT did a re-issue of the John Deere 4430 and the 310 Backhoe some time ago.
But The Ertl Company bought AMT and MPC back in the 80's, RC2 bought the Ertl Company in the late 90's and Round 2 bought the model kit business from RC2 and now have the tooling...so it's for sure possible if the tooling is allright.

i know its highly unlikely but i wish round2 could tell us what kits could possibly be reissued in the future.

that way i can refrain from buying the pricey originals on ebay.

Well I hope the rumors about the S-series are not true, I'd like to get a couple more of both kits.

 

On a little smaller note, I'd like to see the Midnight Cowboy wrecker back, even better if it was done with a regular truck cab in place of the custom.

W model molds were altered to the T600.
Dump trailer and livestock trailer were reissued back in the first couple rounds of reissues in 03-04.
