Revell...Monogram...it's pretty much the same thing, Revell and Monogram merged into one company in 1986 but the two brands were kept separate until the mid 90's when the kits were labeled Revell/Monogram, after that Monogram pretty much dissappeared and all kits were labeled Revell, but lately they have reinstated the Monogram lable and a Revell developed kit can be labeled Mongram and a Monogram developed kit can be labeled Revell regardless of origin...I don't like it as it gets confusing if you don't know your kit history well. But all Monogram developed kits are 1:24th scale and Revell has allways been 1:25th scale so the Monogram labeled kits in 1:25th scale were done after the merge 1986 and no new tooling kits from the Revell/Monogram Company after that are 1:24th scale. There are a couple of exceptions, the NASCAR kits, the 80's and 90's Pro Stock and Funny Car kits from Monogram and Revell were 1:24th scale but the tooling for them were originally developed before the merge.
Looks to be repops of the wheels from the later versions of the AMT 66 Mustang, others do them too. With todays technology it wouldn't be that hard to do a more correct wheel and print a master out with a 3D printer.
Over here in Sweden and Europe the length regulations has killed off the conventionals and all truck manufacturers are only doing cabovers as the demand for conventionals wasn't enough to continue production. Scania stopped making the T series 2005 and Volvo stopped making the NH 2006, Volvo still do conventionals for the North American market.
I was thinking about mentioning the GMP wheels but as they are a bit hard to come by I didn't. The wheels from the Revell 67 Shelby diecast are also missing the "inset angled" inner hub but otherwise they look quite good.
Nice work Dave. I also saw the movie back in when it came up here in 1978 at 14, it's one of my favourite movies and I saw it every time they re-ran it at the movies, and have seen it at least once a year since the video and DVD came and I have lost count on how many times I have seen it. I also have plans to build the Kenworth truck, Hobbs trailer and Pontiac Trans Am in the future.
The resin wheels in Roy's post are from the AMT 66 Mustang and they doesn't look completely right. The best looking Shelby 10 spokes are in the Revell 1967 Shelby diecast kit...they are not exactly correct as none of the other available kit wheels are either, but they are closest.
I thought the new tool 57 Chevy dissappeared when they moved production from Mexico to China. The last new tool 57 Chevy was the Coca Cola version and the one with the pink and white 2 door post car on the box art, both from 1998.
Great work Pavel. Regarding the NTC 400, you could have used the dual turbo NTC 475 from the Revell AG Peterbilt 359, Kenworth K100 or T600 and leave out one of the turbos and you will have a 1:25th scale NTC 400.
