    Very Kool! 
    Unit 3950, now we know: the origin/inspiration of AMTs W925 box art in 1971, surely AMT best truck/tractor  boxart ever,( so good it lasted until the late 80s under ERTL).
    AMTs artist was also surely inspired by this, for the Fruehauf trailer box art too.

    WOW Museum master model indeed!
    Remember seeing the first original PROTAR edition in a LHS, back in the 90s, price was pretty hefty then

    WOW!
    What a great looking model, of the best looking TV big rig ever...

    Got a load of L-700 parts.
  9. ZIL 111V added a post in a topic Two OTAKI models   

    Both kits seem very nice, for their time, boxes look great (corners, no fading or mildew + every parts still sealed) yours looks like late 60s early 70s OTAKI very first editions, final Prices can be tricky especially on eBay: way over top OR...pretty average, depending who's fighting with you & as mention when!
    Rarety of those in original OTAKI boxes is true, BUT important to remember that most of the 1/16 OTAKI cars kit molds are still with us, including the MIURA & AR33.  FUJIMI now owns,( since the late 80s), most  molds of OTAKI former 1/16 car kit line

    Very nice!

    Nice work!  reminds me of 1982, when I got the same kit....
    Indeed, Revell (truck of the world series). Italeri & Matchbox; F12s (&Globetrotters) are 3 totally different molds, all introduced back in 1981/82.
  12. ZIL 111V added a post in a topic 1931 Cadillac Dual Cowl Phaeton   

    Superb Classic!
    Very nice kit for its time (60s) of a beautiful car, love your 2 tone blue paint; navy blue fenders, looks better than box art black.
  13. ZIL 111V added a post in a topic 1/8 65 Corvette   

    Very nice!, love the color indeed the after market wheels look much better.
    Monogram surely did a nice job on this big & simple kit back then, looks great 50 years later.
