Truck Kits You've Scored Recently

Recommended Posts

I finally got my hands on a 58 Chevy promo pickup. Ive been hunting one for awhile. They pop up occasionally, but they go for a high price. Ive been holding out for a good deal, and Im satisfied. 

The plan is to turn it into one of these.

Terry - seeing that promo almost brought a tear to my eye.  I use to own a '59 fleetside.

I like your idea , The rule of thumb is - You can Never go wrong with Spoke wheels ! :lol:

Found the AMT Peterbilt California Hauler 359 mismarked at $24.99 today (at Hobby Lobby in Milford, CT). Got it for $15 with a coupon! 

Good find! I'm looking forward to future AMT releases because for months now all of my area Hobby Lobby stores have had nothing but an endless supply of California Haulers and WF COEs.

I just purchased the Peterbilt California hauler. I may build a hot rod  like the pissed off Pete , or a needle nose not sure yet.

Man that green Chevy with the spoked wheels kills me!  Is there an old  GMC kit or something along these lines with those wheels out there?

Gino, sounds like you have a plan.

These just arrived in today's mail. The Aerodyne is open but it's all there. A little water damage to the decals which I won't use anyway. No immediate plans for either one but the prices were right on both.

I got a few in today myself.

I also scored an original issue GMC General.

This kit completes my collection of original issue AMT GM trucks.

Where did you get this resin cab and front clip?  I have been wanting to build a replica of my 65 F600 grain truck.
