  1. chuckyr added a post in a topic Italeri is asking for new kit subject requests.   

    This is logical thinking.  Requesting something with broad appeal.  Not just to American truck model enthusiasts, but to non-American truck model enthusiasts.  As it is, truck kits like Scania and Mercedes Benz out sell American subjects by far.  The US is such a small market for Italeri for trucks. 
    For the most part, once a new big rig truck kit is on the market for a year, it ceases to sell in any significant numbers.   A request that will remain relevant for a while is more likely to get a model manufacture's attention.  The bottom line is a return on their investment.

    I thought this was the truck board? Who cares if you are "mostly a car" guy!

    Italeri is asking for new kit subject requests.
    OK, HERE IS YOUR CHANCE!  Italeri is asking for what new subjects you would like as kits.  Send them .JPG file format photos of your choices to "photo@italeri.com", BEFORE AUGUST 27.  This is your opportunity to let them know what we want.  From what I have been told by Italeri over the years through correspondences is that they generally will consider "typically" American truck subjects.  To Europeans, "typical" means conventional, not cabovers.  But you can send them whatever.  Excuses stop here.  They are asking, give them answers!     http://italeri.com/news_scheda.asp?idNews=681

    Bumping after so many years for those that like to ask the age old question, "why hasn't the International 4070a been reissued?"

    Nice build.

    Without seeing it close up, it could be.  Or a very good re-pop. I have an original Dreenan kit, cast by Clint Freeman in a tan-ish vinyl resin. Your item looks to be cast in a cheaper material.  But I think there were several castiers later on that used different materials.  You are missing the cab and a few other items that came in the original kit.

    You hit on a really good combination with this one!

    I did a post or two in English and got chastised for it.  I was told this is a German forum and all posts should be done in German.  Either way, the quality of the builds is always at a high level.

    I'm a member of that site.  It seems every truck build is top notch!
