Excellent. This kit lends itself well for conversion into a drop deck.

I have an opened original release kit in the closet that I scored on ebay in 2005 for 25 bucks to the door!

Pulled a few of the 1:1's from Chicago to up around the Detroit area in the early 90's!

Does anybody know what is going on with this kit?

Also can this kit be used for a standard flatbed? I have been looking for a regular flatbed, but don't want to pay $75 for it.

Thanks

The new release hasn't shown up on ebay or the local hobby shops yet, but the round 2 YouTube video shows it coming back this fall, along with the Mack DM800 and the Peerless logging trailer. It can be used as a standard flatbed if it's not extended. I built an original kit back in the 90's as a covered wagon.

The finished kit.  It was an easy build other than the cross bars on the extension superstructure not lining up exactly.  The long deck was warped but my darling wife reminded me that flatbed trucks have a hump to not sag when loaded. The load is 7/8 diameter wooden dowels painted to look like pipes.  The red plastic ends are Caplugs used where i work to seal the ends of copper tubes during transit to our building.  Hold-down chains and rub rail hooks are from Hobby Lobby. Straps to hold the load together are rubber bands painted black with a Sharpie.  A Mack DM800 is on the shelf to be constructed to pull the rig.  Also a pic of the kit decals.

 

Enjoy,

Joe

Glad to see it has Oversized load decals in addition to the Wide Load ones that Round2 was advertising. As it's certainly Oversized (by length), but it's by no means too wide :P

The Oversize Load decals measure 3 1/8 x 5/8 in.
