  1. It is a rebox of an Italeri kit, same as the Pete 389 and Freightliner FLC.
  2. Given the description of 'Ford Monster Truck' it's probably a reissue of this one.
  3. I imagine we'll see the stock version and maybe this one? Would be great to have all the grilles available.
  4. I've glued the roof in place on ones I've built. The engine block in this kit is also oddly scaled. The tires are no good at all for this truck, but the excellent decals and eight extra tires will cause me to pick up a couple!
  5. Olson Brothers offers a reproduction wagon roof. Appears to be out of stock at the moment, however.
  6. I absolutely hate those trucks. I will be extremely disappointed if they tool one of those. Tool something modern on the road today for Pete's sake. 🙄🤦‍♂️ Italeri can modify their Volvo into the current VN, Moebius can modify their ProStar into the LT. Round 2 should do the Freightliner Cascadia/Western Star 49X to make the investment stretch farther. If they absolutely need to do a PACCAR at least do the KW T680 or T880 or W990. We need another Peterbilt model like we need another '57 Chevy or '32 Ford... 🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️
  7. We're always so quick to complain about the bad experiences but I want to tell about a great experience I've been having the past couple of weeks with an eBay seller. It started out as him having two items listed that I wanted to buy, one BIN and one auction. I asked if he could combine shipping and he agreed. I bought the BIN, paid full price, then won the auction and paid full price. He sent me a refund for the difference in shipping costs. Then we went back and forth for more parts he had (Italeri trucks) and I bought more. When I contacted him again inquiring about a part missing, he found it right away and was ready to ship it out that day, but he found even more stuff I was interested in so those are getting tossed in as well. 😀
  8. Step one: convert the ProStar into the LT, tool up a Cummins X15. See how well a kit of what's on the road right now sells. 🙂

  10. I've experienced this with an MPC Bronco, molded in blue.
  11. The issue with the blue truck on the cover as well as the combo set with the '98 F-150 have the stock engine.
  12. Morgan Automotive Detail has Mercury conversion parts for the 65-66 trucks.
  13. I see all kinds of LoneStars, new and old, ProStars, and LTs. 🤷‍♂️
