I don't see why other companies don't do what round2's doing and price their semi kits around 30-45 bucks. The price tag is the entire reason that i'm not a truck modeler, they are just way too over priced.

I'm wondering how gaudy the decal graphics will be this time. Other than that these are very nice looking kits when cleanly built and detailed.

The AeroMax is a nice looking truck.  Might get one if I can find one at the right price.

To be fair the Italeri kits are well detailed with a large parts count.

With Italeri and Revell of Germany kits it costs more to import them.

That is good news. Now let's have the Freightliner FLD120 before the real ones disappear completely from our roads... Please?

Cool, I was hoping it would be the 106! Not big on the 120.

Yeah, I saw that.....I totally am wishing for that FLD, too....Although I see potential with the Ford, I think the price is a little steep, as well, but I know about the import costs.....I'm just glad to see that 359 rotator come back out...And that's priced reasonably.....Even better than when it was first released....Of course, we'll see if that changes....But if you preorder, now....You got it....

The FLD was rereleased a few years back but I think someone on here said there may be a condo version in the works.
I think the wrecker is cheaper this time around because it is Revell and not RoG. Or maybe they eliminated the extra parts. I know its not the Can Do version this time.

Personally I'm hoping that Italeri reissues the Volvo VN kits.  All sorts of fleets use those.

The funny thing about these kits is that nobody wanted them when they were out because they were curbside. Once they disappeared it became a hot item. Luckily I snagged a few before they went bye bye.

I don't really care about the curbside issue, as to me it's really a non-issue.  I always display my trucks with the hood closed anyway, so one never sees the engine.  If you really wanted to you could always put a resin Cummins ISX in it.

Honestly, the amount of missing "stuff" under the hood of any version VN is staggering.  So unless Italeri steps up & tools up a entirely new kit, it is better off as a curbside.  The only ISX available now is in resin from Auslowe & although it is a very nice piece, it is in 1/25.  The VN being 1/24 really makes the ISX look more about the size of a ISC (approx 9 L) .

Just to give you an idea of the "stuff" under the hood of the VNL attached are a few photos from 2012.

2 images of a VNL with the Volvo D12D motor, 12L w/ egr cooler.  Current production has the D-11, D13 or D16 w/ DPF & SCR.

As are many of Revell of Germany's trucks. Very few didn't have a start in an Italeri box.
