    The AITM kits aren't cheap, but they are really clean castings and build out beautifully. I recently bought an R700 and its one of the nicest resin conversion kits Ive ever bought. Absolutely worth the money.

    AITM has larger tanks, the step toolboxes, as well as the correct hood and grille

    That Holmes bed is awesome. Picked it up at a show a couple years ago. Was building a 70s Dodge wrecker but got stuck on some issues with frame width and I put it on the back burner

    I'm not really sure I care what is on the box. Could be a plain brown packaging and I'll be totally fine. I just need to get like a dozen when they come out. Have many plans

    All three I bought have perfect cabs and chrome. All three came from different places (my LHS, one from Tower and one from Mark Twain Hobbies) and all three were fine. I wouldn't be swayed from buying another. Just make sure the box isn't crushed

    Great work! I'm interested in doing something similar now having seen your work. Gives me an idea for what I can do with a stalled Ford project I've had on the back burners for several years. 
     
    Regarding the spokes, certain versions of the AMT Mack come with 6 spoke steers and 5 spoke drives.  sure it was common at one time

    Glad I bought three. It looks like a much nicer build than the AMT KW cabovers

    I agree. Ive bought a number of Mack R models over the years. I have already built one stock so recently I picked up one of those R700 conversion kits from AITM for an original issue kit Im working on. To say the least, they are beautiful, clean castings and come with a bunch of nice parts. I cant wait to get mine worked on. I plan to buy many more as soon as the reissues hit the shelves.

    AITM has several nice conversion kits for the r700. I just bought one. Well worth the cost. Going to get another once the R model kits are released. I can't wait

    Tha half cab, roadster doors, shaker hood, and flares are presently on ebay right now. I couldn't wait to snag my half cab conversion. I wanted to do one since I first heard of the release of the kit

    Scored me an original t501 Pete for less than $20 on the bay.

    Oh man, almost fainted when I read that. I've never been so excited for a re release. Going to run up the cc when that comes out...

    Where did it say this? Ive been looking all over all morning to verify this.
