      The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well.  k den

I want a few honest opinions on this one. It doesn't look like all that great of a kit judging from the box art, and I'm just wondering how workable it is.

The worst thing about this kit is that it's the only American truck kit in 1/20. There's no trailers available for it. It was originally issued as an assembled "toy" in yellow plastic and then later by Testors as a kit in red plastic. Chassis parts were molded in black on both versions. It's a curbside from what I remember. The original versions were molded in a more flexible type plastic being that it was also issued as a toy. I don't have Lindbergs version but I think someone mentioned that they molded it in regular styrene. It does build into a nice looking Peterbilt but there's not much you can do with it without some serious scratchbuilding.
