Who Has The Best Price on AMT 4070A Kit


Recommended Posts

The price directly from Round2 (via AutoWorld) is $61.99. So I'd consider that to be the upper ceiling. It's the shipping that'll get you considering the size and weight of the kit vs. a normal car kit.

Just got a notice from ebay that Model Car Mountain  sent a tracking number with USPS for the one I bought.

Me too. There are also a couple other sellers on Ebay selling for about the same price.

They were showing two left so with the wife's nod of approval I dropped the hammer on one!

After watching Chris' ( @hpiguy) unboxing & build of this kit , I'm terribly tempted to buy one , too ! 

Is this an old ERTL 'tooling-restoration-and-improvement' project ? 

I'm truly impressed by what seems to be a 100% new kit ! That cab interior insert (door panels , headliner , sleeper ) is perhaps its finest appointment ! Now if only the pickups and passenger cars kits would have this feature ! 

According to Chris , this kit "practically fell-together" . That's always good to hear when working with any kit , and especially a tractor .

This is by far and away the easiest and most well thought out semi tractor I've ever assembled. 

If they were all designed like this I'd review way way more of them. 

I've done the more modern Revell and Italeri kits and they were good, but this revamped Ertl was nothing but easy the entire time. I had not even one frustrating moment and I've mentioned on a few of the AMT semi tractors and tow truck that they take a very very patient hand and going over the directions a few times. They are not for the beginner.  This 4070A went together like a modern Moebius Ford kit. Easy peasy.
