The not so good news,
The price has jump significantly and they are the exact same colors they were done in before. That I don't understand. Change the colors and have a chance to sell one to a collector that may already have one of the lod ones, like me. I have everyone one of these.
I just received a note from my friend at Yat Ming USA. Yat Ming had a few higher detailed cars but also had many low end cars that were done very well, including my favorite, the 41 Willys in 1/18 scale.
Here is a copy paste of the note:
"Dear Valued Customer,
As the toy industry tries to stay afloat, some factories struggle to remain open. This time it is Yat Ming factory who will have to part ways and close its doors.
Effective July 2013, Yat Ming will close the factory and leave the business of manufacturing die cast products."
This started as a post on an AMT 1/43 thread and was moved here as a new thread for some reason. I know this is a truck kit but the OP wanted to create a list of all the 1/43 AMT kits. I guess you can't do that if they involve cars and trucks??
Anyway, Lets start a list of all the 1/43 Truck kits made by AMT.
I have a wrecker and a few more but can't find the photos.
