Truck Kits You've Scored Recently

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, some of us have shown off our collections on display and unbuilt kits. I think it would be cool to show off kits as we aquire them. Im starting a thread to post a pic of the kit, in the box or an old built up, and a little info on where it came from. No need to post prices, just showing whats out there. I like buying old built ups as much as unbuilt kits. Theres always a story with a built up. Who knows, maybe some of us are bidding on the same kits.

Heres two kits I grabbed from the show this past saturday. This was literally the only two truck related kits in a sea of airplanes and tanks. The IH is rare, and I dont have this issue of the dozer.

Ill probably cut the KW down to a daycab. As for the trailer, its just going in my stash for now.

Heres a first gear Mack B61. I like grabbing these when I can. I buy them for the wrecker bodies, then rebuild the truck. I grind off all of mounting tabs, and glue it together.

man terry, you've got a small fortune in those autocar kits, especially coming from ebay!

I keep it at a reasonable price. I have a rule, if its below my price I grab it. If its a dollar above, Ive got plenty of them already. Let someone else have it. Sometimes one slips by that no one sees........

Terry, I usually show restraint when 'shopping', most of those kits were bought quite reasonably.

the score of the bunch was the prestige auto hauler kit, [truck, trailer and both cars, complete minus decals], landed that one for $150 [that included shipping cost], and no, it wasn't an e-bay purchase, just right place/time kinda thing.

I do like it when an e-bay item 'slips thru the radar', have caught some real good buys on things.
