1/25 AMT GMC Astro 95 Questions

10 April 2014 - 10:17 AM

I have a few questions regarding the 1/25 AMT GMC Astro 95 I hope someone can answer. I just got an original issue which was already opened with a few parts loose, so I'm not quite sure if a few things are correct for the original issue with the turbine engine.

 

1) My kit includes two tires (assuming for the front/steer axle) which are different than the eight rear/drive axle tires. They are all Goodyear Custom Hi Miler tires, but the front tires are taller and have a slightly different tread pattern, as seen in the pics below. Is this correct that the two front tires do not match the rears, or should all ten ten be the same?

2) The turbine engine is labeled as a "Allison" engine, but is the automatic transmission also made by Allison?

 

3) Are the axle half pieces shared with any other AMT tractor kits, other than the Chevy Titan?

Fantastic reference video, with a good mix of big names and locals:

The 1/25 AMT '68 Chevy Camaro Z/28 kit is back, this time with parts included to build either a stock or customized street machine. It doesn't appear that anything has changed, other than everything being included in one box this time, as well as new box art:
