    There is value is producing a variety of subjects, both vintage and modern, and where one manufacturer caters to one market, we should have others that produce kits that appeal to the other interests. 
    I myself enjoy trucks from the past and present. If the truck interests me, I put it in the stash and on the list of future projects.
    This thread and the one about your first truck kit got me thinking. In my case, I was 10 years old and the T600a was a modern truck, it was one I had noticed on the road (who wouldn't with that new design?) so it really interested me. Had to get it. Did I like the older trucks? Sure. But this was new and cool. I had a real life connection to it.
    I'm certain that other current diehard truck model builders, casual kit buyers, and the future building youth out there who are buying their first kit tomorrow feel the same.

    Thanks for the great information.
    Glad it will be accurate if paint it as a red top.

    Cummins N14 - Early 90's Red Top?
    So I've got a question about the N14 - what year was the higher horsepower "Red Top" introduced? 
    If I'm modeling say, a 1990 or 91 truck, should the valve cover be black? 
    Internet research hasn't provided a clear answer. It seems the red may have been a mid to late 90's thing with all of the Celect and Celect Plus electronics, but I'm not sure. Hope you guys can help.

    Just received an order of the BFG All Terrain TA's from Fireball. Highly recommended!

    Really nice work, I like it in black.

    Thanks Ben, that's it. Those Fotki website articles are great. There are several really good ones.

    Thanks everyone for the information. I think my best bet is the snap w900, unless the timing of the project works with the reissue of the Papa Truck. I plan to get a couple for a future bash project anyway, and I'd have a leftover rear end.
    It is too bad MMTA is gone, they had a number of great items.
  11. vincen47 added a post in a topic K100 Rear Suspension Alternative?   

    Is the snap w900 suspension molded to the frame or separate?

    K100 Rear Suspension Alternative?
    Looking to update/correct the AMT T600A using Ken Smith's article (Car Modeler Jan 93).
    He suggested using the rear suspension from the AMT K100 Aerodyne, but that kit is hard to find/expensive, so I was wondering if I could use an air bag suspension from another easier to find or less expensive source. Your ideas, please.
    Revell snap w900 - cut it off the frame?
    Or an aftermarket resin source?
    Worst case, I guess I have time to wait until the Papa truck comes out again.

    That is just plain awesome! 
  14. vincen47 added a post in a topic What was your first truck model?   

    My first was the AMT T600A, got it from Kmart when I was in 5th grade. Painted it silver like the box art. A glue bomb, but I still have it, though it is in pieces in the parts bin. 
    I just bought another sealed kit, have plans to build it with all the corrections needed for an accurate T600.   
    It'll be a nostalgic build.
