These snap kits are great. Cheap and the possibilities are endless.

Here's a kenworth I built,

Very nice job on these man. Again, your blue and gold KW was very inspirational to me. They all look great.

Iam still amazed at the possiblities of these snappers. If your willing to put in the effort, these build up into really nice pieces.

JT, imagination and execution perfectly paired. Really liking the KW / Ford combination, very original.

Landon, your all black Pete istantly made me think of that show truck, Project 350, nice work. The black, white and red Pete stopped me in my tracks, great color choice.

Thanks guys, Clayton I'm glad that KW inspired you, that's one of my favorites. The real truck that inspired that build was like my summer home when I was a child. These snap kits are great I wish they came out with some others in 1/25. I don't get the build time like I used to since I started working at Chef Boyardee. But I have a California hauler in finishing up that I will post when I get a chance.

Be well guys keep building and be well.

Wow Guys,

Some excellent examples of work in these pics. I have just embarked on my first semi build since I was a teen 40 years ago. Hopefully I can do it proud.

These are some amazing works, Boys....So glad Revell reissued these things....You can do so much with them, because the price is so low.....You're not scared you're going to screw them up.....So if you want to cut the sleeper off and you don't like the end result, go snag another one.....Awesome, Guys....

Oh yeah, really an amazing show of talent, great builds guys.

What's the deal on snap kits?  Are they basically simplified kits?  Do they have motors and suspension detailing?

I'm really impressed.

Less part count, simplified assembly. A lot of the parts are molded together. Some parts aren't molded at all. Just a beginner kit. But, with some imagination and extra parts, these really transform into something great.

Thanks Clayton.  Man I can hardly tell the difference of the snap kits.  I'll have to check these out.

Mine is of the small persuasion. I have a few rigs but all of them will wind up being something else, mostly vintage.

Some great lookin builds guys.

 

The Photobucket question.... you need to use the IMG link, not the URL. That's how I do it.

Here is my 1/32 Snapper.  Hope this works.  Does anyone have tips posting from photobucket ?IMG_0759-1_zps6milzijn.jpg

I remember this build when it was work in progress...fill in all the nasty snap tabs on the sleeper,using model railroad rivets on the stretch etc.Brian you inspired me to get back into this hobby with this build and to use this kit for my first subject and always been a fan of your work.....hope to see more from ya.....
