    Great looking build.  I recently got one for my son, its the rally version.  He is going from full 1/32 Monogram snap kits to these simple curbside glue kits.  I wish these would be reissued as they make a nice transition kit for young builders and experienced builders can enjoy them by adding some extra details.

    Those S Series trucks look perfect with a plow set up.  I remember seeing them on the highways back in the 80's.  I vote plow with dumpbox.

    Cool, Ray is an awesome guy to deal with.  Glad to hear you got some trading done with him.  You are right, the box doesn't matter its what is inside that counts.  Look forward to seeing you build this one.

    Awesome score, when it was out on store shelves it was around $100 so you did very well.  Where did you find that, at a garage sale?

    When I built the box I had trouble with the roll up door so I sanded the edge where it fits in the groove/track and that made it move up and down without binding.  It said use tape to hold the sections together so I used regular masking tape.  Over the years the masking tape dried up so next time I would use duct tape.

    Thanks for the compliments.  I know that an unbuilt kit is pricey and hard to come by so you may want to have a look at buying a rebuilder.  Only the yellow Ryder was a fresh kit, the others were built up junkers that I restored.  In fact I am working on two CO 4070A junkers and two more Transtar Eagles.  Until this kit is reissued builtups can be a cheap way to get what you want on your shelf.

    Its a great kit, one of my favourites. The only thing I would do is move the battery box back about 1/8 inch or so and also move both fuel tanks back as well to keep them lined up.  By moving back the battery box it allows the front wheels to be in a turned position without hitting the battery box.  Here are a few of mine.  The daycab Transcon is actually the Transtar 11 Eagle just back dated as best I could to represent the CO 4070A

    I did but the kit has been out of production for a few years now so I doubt they will stock parts for something that is not currently available.

    Looking for tail lights for Revell Peterbilt Wrecker body
    I just received a Revell Peterbilt wrecker body off Ebay and it does not come with the rear tail lights for the wrecker body.  If any one has a set I will pay or trade with parts.  Any help greatly appreciated.

    It was worth the drive through 2 hrs of heavy traffic last night to pick up a Revell Bill Signs Peterbilt and a Revell Kenworth Aerodyne Cabover !

    That should have said "probuilt"
  13. doogie7046 added a post in a topic Ebay dreamers   

    I have seen prices go way beyond stupid on Ebay, but I think for some it can be an addiction to win that auction at all costs.  As for "prebuilt" you ever see what some "professional contractors" try to pass off when doing home renos.

    Sorry to hear you have to pack up your hobby area.  I've been there and done that.  Perhaps you will have an extra rubber maid tote that you can put this baby into until after you settle into your new place.  You put a lot into this build and others that you are working on so if you decide not to pack it I'm sure it will go to a good home.

    Thanks for the heads up Chris.  Stuff like this ruins the hobby for everyone.
