  1. It's a 379 on the box and a 378 in the box.
  2. Jerry's decals are fantastic, you won't be disappointed!
  3. It'll probably be a little higher than that and, compared to the cost of other kits today, it'll be worth every penny considering what you get in that kit. Even if you build it box-stock you have many parts left over. How many kits can you say that about? My pockets aren't deep by any means but I hope to buy a few if I can. And let's face it, with the hobby getting smaller by the day due to aging builders, the possible future uncertainty of Revell as a company, not to mention the current unpleasantness going on, there's always the possibility that this might be the last reissue of this kit.
  4. I think the 36" sleeper would be fine. I doubt many wreckers really need a sleeper but a lot have them. I've never been to Alaska but I'm guessing a sleeper would come in handy if you get stuck in the wilderness, or it would just be a big tuna can for a grizzly bear!
  5. That would be great (only 25 years since the reissue!) but I'll believe it when I see it.
  6. Not yet. The latest news I've seen on them indicates sometime in the next few months for release.
  7. The model makers really missed the boat when they never made the Peterbilt 379 or Kenworth W900L, and now that's those are becoming dinosaurs on the road we'll never see them. That said, the only way to sustain the hobby and make an attempt at getting new people interested in building is to come out with kits of newer trucks that people actually see on the road.
  8. Hmmm...just because you can doesn't mean you should!
  9. I've heard stories over the past few years that the molds no longer exist, and just as many "soon to be reissued" stories. Personally I'm hoping for the latter since it's been 23 years since it was last issued, but I would've thought with the popularity of the kit and constant demand for it that it would've been reissued by now if the molds do exist. At this point I wouldn't even care if they came with Coca-Cola decals as long as the kit gets released!
  10. Looks like the AMT/Italeri collaboration is continuing.
  11. Driving through Colorado last week I happened upon the "Reaper" at a rest area west of Denver. It was awesome to see such a huge Kenworth...it even has a Harley inside! The other pics a rig I saw on me trip...
