AMT to Rebox Italeri Kits Plus other Announcements

Recommended Posts

Stevens had listed 2 items from AMT that I believe are Italeri kits reboxed.

AMT PLASTIC MODEL KITS AMT-1160 1/25 Coca-Cola White Western Star Semi Tractor Cab
AMT PLASTIC MODEL KITS AMT-1164 1/25 Big Rig Semi Trailer
AMT PLASTIC MODEL KITS AMT-1169 1/24 Peterbilt 378 Long Hauler Semi Tractor Cab
AMT PLASTIC MODEL KITS AMT-1170 1/24 Reefer Semi Trailer

I'm not sure I see the point in it for either company. Sure I suppose it might put Italeri's kits out to a broader U.S. market but the MSRP of nearly $80 is almost  $20 than the Pete 378 sells for in most places. I can't see Round2 selling a lot of them unless you can 40% off one and pick it up for less than $50.

Interesting. I wonder what box art and decals we’ll see? Also, I wonder what other Italeri re-boxes/reissues they’d release if this joint venture continues?

Good idea about the HL 40%. That would make this a great thing.

I wonder if they’ll ever do a completely new big rig? This really seems pointless.

Maybe us on the other side of the pond will get to see AMT kits reboxed as Italeri then?

Italeri kits are NOT 1/25th scale.  They are 1/24th scale.

Italeri never offered a WHITE Western Star.

The Italeri Western Star is a a Western Star!

 Uh, I think the OP is referring to the two 1/24 scale kits listed...

Yes, it seems that someone totally missed the two 1/24th scale listings in the opening post, in addition to the fact the ONLY Peterbilt conventional tractor AMT has kitted is a 359. AMT has NEVER  offered a 378 Peterbilt conventional tractor prior to this. 

This also would not be the first time AMT has offered a reboxed foreign kit, at least two that I know of from the late 80s or early 90s (Lexus LS400 and "Back to the Future" DeLorean) were reboxes of Aoshima kits.

You don't have to shout boys. :rolleyes:
The 1:24th scale kits listed are of no interest to me, especially if they are Italeri kits.

Reading is fundamental. Perhaps not so quick on the keyboard before you read the whole thing. The title should have given away which kits I was referring to being Italeri's. As I wasn't referring to the 1/25 items I specifically mention 2 items. You had a 50/50 chance of guessing the right ones, I wouldn't play the lottery if I were you it would be a waste.
