CASEY,

Have they assigned the kit a number yet (so I can get my local hobby store to get one on order)?

Thanks

Actually the general and bison didn't come out till 1977 and AMT's kits were released in 1978. Outside of the original release they tend to have warpage issues. Round 2 most likely addressed this. The kit is nice overall and has a nice non turbo early 8v92 (365 hp). Now if we can just get the Coke edition of the starship Enterprise.

I think the release date is Mar/Apr. kit would make a great fleet unit. I’m sure there are numerous examples online.

Or even a nice Coke IH 4070B Transtar II.

I'll buy a frame for the Coke Decals and hang em on the wall if they will come out with the Transtar!!!!    😉😄    Joking aside,  if what it takes for us to get a bunch of these kits re-popped is some decals from Coke, then,  BRING THEM ON!!!

Were there specific parts which were warped? I want to say I recall the hood being mentioned by some forum members?

while the rather long frame of mine (built in 1983/84) was not at all warped - indeed, very straight - the hood did not close and fit well - I was not able to fix it properly. Also, the handles on the mufflers were flat instead of round which looked awful. I was rather disappointed with this kit back then, maybe I will rework it some day.
