AMT Rebox of the Italeri 378 Long Hauler

Recommended Posts

Found this browsing around online. As someone who's been looking for these (since they seem to have disappeared from hobby store shelves) I welcome it. The throwback box art is nice too, looks like the second issue of the original T500 California Hauler, which I'm just fine with.

Same artist from the 1970 series?

Nice box art.  Has AMT ever reboxed Italeri kits?  I'm suspicious.

No I believe this is the first time.
Nice boxart...but I already have this kit from Italeri so I think I'll pass on it.

This is the first as far as I know of, though in the mid to late 80s AMT did rebox the Back to the Future DeLorean from Aoshima and also a Lexus LS400. As far as I know, the only one to rebox Italeri kits up to this point had been Revell of Germany and Testors did rebox the Freightliner FLD 120 and container trailer along with some of Italeri's car kits also.

Yes Revell Germany have reboxed a lot of Italeri truck kits over the years.

Well I for one like seeing this and hope it’s a trend , probably help in the price point department as well ! Plus I love the old school AMT box art!

It won't be.  Stevens International has it at $78.95.  So less for you and more for me!

Didn’t think we’d get that lucky, but then again, if it becomes a hobby lobby item the coupon makes it pretty reasonable.

With the HL coupon it "should" be about $48 before tax.
