I'm with you all the way on the return of the Volvo kits.....I, personally, liked the Volvo kits....Yeah, they're curbsides, but Man, they look good when you pair it up to a race trailer....I bought 4, when they were out and acquired a few more just recently....And, you're right about the "staggering" amount of stuff missing that you would need to put an engine inside....About the only thing I would do is rob another kit for the steering....Other than that, I don't see anything else my skill level will tolerate....

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.
I agree with the others but the thing is, those trucks are current and they're going up and down our roads, today! So let's have them, let us who wish so, put engines in them and a steering axle like the other Italeri kits and call it a day. But then again, did they sell really well to start with? It seems popular with some of the guys here and I like it myself having built one, but what about overall sales?

Well, it's a shame it wasn't the 120 I was hoping it would be. But, still great to have this one. I just can't figure out why they molded the hood in two halves. It took me days to get rid of that seam! Luckily for me, I managed to snag a 120 from Ebay at a reasonable price as well as the older Constellation kit with the side fairings.
