Hi all,

I was looking on ebay today and found the Revell of Germany Kenworth Dump Truck as a reissue!! I've listed the link below. I have the original that was out back in the 90s. I made a search on the net and found sereval on line model dealers have this kit shown for a late Nov. release. This is very good news. Has anyone else heard any news about this.

i don't get why revell doesn't use a modern W-900? I'm still probably going to buy one of these but i really wish it were the up to date version of the W-900 i mean we've seen this particular tooling for at least 20+ different variations come on revell time for an update.

Is this the one that comes with opening, hinged doors? Or was that the Bill Signs Pete?

Or am I thinking of something else altogether...?

That W900 mold is getting in rough shape, I bought one of the current kits with the flat top sleeper and it's very flashy and the alignment is poor on a lot of the cab parts. It is in need of some refeshing before they completely ruin it.

i tell ya what i'd like to see from revell is them reissue the tanker trailer kit i still have one from way back in 2003? it's a nice kit and i think it would benefit from a reissue. but as far as the W-900 kit yes it has begun to deteriorate from constant use same thing with the 359 kit that revell offers i realize now that revell may never tool up a modern W-900 but it never hurts to dream right? :D

They already did a T600, all they have to do is make a W900L hood and add it in. I don't see what the hold up is.

One snap kit,flat sheet,photos and around a week of chopping and cutting with some extra parts one could have a truck with a pup.

Oddly enough, Model Express (dispite announcing that they are closing up shop) are offering this kit as a "case of 3" for $199. That works out to $66.67 per kit. But you have to pre-order the case of three kits.
