Bandag Bandit and Hideout Truck

Recommended Posts

Now that the Tyrone Malone trucks are being reissued is there any news on the chance someone is producing the decals for the Bandit trucks?

I read that both decal sets will be issued with the Super Boss.

The Super Boss Is supposed to come out this month and it has two decal options, both are for the Super Boss race truck  one is for the first Thermo King version and one for the later Bandag version and AMT originally did both versions.

But you can get decals for the Bandag Bandit and Hideout Truck here http://www.modeltruckin.com/store/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=2_143_22

Keep in mind that the Super Boss and Bandag Bandit kits are different allthough they are based on the same tooling, the Bandit has a different hood with pitchfork top scoop, side scoops and custom headlights, the twin turbo setup is different, the exhausts are different, the rear wing and rear tail lights and panel are also different.
So they look similar but they are very different if you look closely.

None that I know of.
If you want to do the Bandag Bandit and don't want to wait you have to rely on ebay or other places like that to get one...but they are expensive.
The Papa Truck transporter is the next to follow and was announced to be released sometime this fall, and Round 2 will most likely do both the Bandag Bandit and Hideout truck transporter too if everything goes well, maybe sometime next year or so
