Jerry at modeltruckin.com has a set called Dozer Replacement decals that have the correct markings for this kit.

Enjoyed every second of mine.
Three types of grill decals, three construction companies on the decal sheet too.

Jerry at Modeltruckin.com has the original decal sheet.

Jamie Rahmoeller has the brass etch set for it. Moluminum.com it’s not on his site I don’t think. Just contact him through the site.

Are the tracks hard styrene or are they made from the flexible type plastic like the original?

This is a must get for me!

Had the original release only to have my wife's little brothers find it stored in their garage and play with it!:lol:

Mine will have to look like it just came out of the rebuild shop. No way I can do that kind of weathering!B)

Hey JT, are the tracks made from hard styrene plastic or flexible vinyl plastic?

According to this review on the original issue kit, written in 2007, the track shoes are vinyl. Probably the same this time around.

That’s why I need to know on this specific kit. There was one issue that did come with hard styrene tracks. The reason I ask is that paint doesn’t like adhering to that vinyl plastic.

Use a paint made for vinyl car interiors, something like this...  Image result for duplicolor interior paint

Gots to gets me some of these.

So glad I didn't spring for the $100+ asking-prices before they went back into production. Now I can get three for about the same money.

(Oh boy, at least two more kits I'll probably never get to. ;) )

I just read through this thread and pulled out a 2nd or 3rd release kit, circa 15 years ago, The treads were vinyl and I saw why the cleat is so large. The cleat is the part of the shoe where the connection is made to make up the track that is why it is so large. I experimented and found a way to shave the cleat down but can't thin it due to the connecting engineering under the track shoe. I plan on posting a 'how to' which worked for me. Guess my Fire Department is going to get a bulldozer.

I have every issue ever released until this one. Gonna get one soon though. Out of all the issues I have, only one has hard styrene tracks. I think it was the previous issue before this one, in the blue box.

Fabulous to have this back , regrettably I sold off the second issue kit that I had. Do have 3 sets of old AMT stick on decals so hopefully out of the three I can get at least one ste to adhere!

Got mine yesterday and have the PE for it.  Does anyone have info as to what the PE parts are for?  I know the obvious ones, grill, pedals etc, but there are some of the smaller bits that are eluding me.
