    Yes they are, the instructions advise you add some weight to the tanks, you will only need to do this if you want to display with the cab tilted.
    Here is my build,

    And some detail shots of the real deal

    I couldnt get it to square up, and when I did it twisted as the glue dried. It will be hung off a wrecker at some point!

    Pick up cabs on big rigs
    Hi,
    Ive been looking at pictures of 1950's Ford F-800, that had a pick-up cab and hood on a heavy truck chassis, was there any other trucks like this?
    Im thinking the Revell Ford F-100 would be a good cab on an AMT truck chassis I have with some work, is there any other kits I could do this with?
    Thanks

    Its the 'club of four' cab IIR, I think Heller (Renault G260) and Italeri (Volvo Fire trucks) do them as cab-overs and could be converted with a scratchbuilt hood

    I have been trying to get in touch with FG Models, I did the review on Britmodeller where you got the photo from.
    It does look like they have closed down, what a loss as the parts where of a very high quality.

    Why not contact the importer and see if you can buy the spares you need? I brought an incomplete Italeri kit a while back very cheap, and the UK importer for Italeri only charged £10 for the missing parts

    Revell Challenger wrecker
    Hi,
    I have the Revell 4 axle Challenger (Peterbilt 359) wrecker, but as its 1:25, has anyone put it onto a 1:24 truck? I was thinking about putting it with an Italeri Westen Star constillation.
    thanks
