Interesting.  Didn't get the Autocar tractor the last few times around.  Maybe I'll pick one up this time.

I'm hoping to see the Mack DM800 again. The 1/32 range would be cool. The Autocar is still welcome. The W925 was a great 

surprise.

Not surprising, but still disappointing. Round2 has been reissuing most of the tractor kits they reissued within the last few years, so I wouldn't be surprised to see the Diamond REO and Road Boss up again in 2018-9.

The Autocar Tractor was a Stevens International limited offering a few years ago, just like the Mac Cabover which was just reissued...seeing a pattern here? I don't blame Round2, it's easy money and they must have no trouble moving the kits, so why not go with a sure thing?

I believe the Peterbilt 352 will have Coca-Cola livery...I saw it somewhere online. The box art is similar to the Coke Ford Short Hauler.

Wonder if the Autocar will have Coca-Cola livery.  It would be pretty ridiculous if it did.

Scroll down a few topics in the Model Trucks: Reviews section to the Pete 352 topic. :D

It wouldn't surprise me if it did...Round2 seems to be Coca-Cola-ing all the truck kit they can. -_-

I missed my chance to get the Western Star while it was out....who knows..?

I would bet on that one returning again within the next few years too.

That's great news. Haven't had a model of the A64B since I was 16 years old back in 1977. Looking forward to it.
