This kit is a different tooling originally issued by Revell Germany back in 1982...and it's for sure a full detail kit.
Some differences are that the Snap kit has a Cat 3406 engine and a short sleeper, the Revell Germany kit has a Cummins Dual Turbo NTC 475 engine and a longer sleeper.

I don’t know trucks well but have the Pete and KW snap plus or whatever that have been released a few times. Is this Pete a full detail, or variant? 
tia. 

This kit is more detailed with more parts than the snap kits.

Pete is full detail with opening doors and other bells and whistles with 302 parts. The SnapTite kits are originally Monogram kits from right around the same time period, which is several years before they merged. 

EDIT - I see this was already answered, but I was replying from the notification. 😉

Thx for time. Tires looked too good but I have no idea. The snap Pete, KW and an an original Challenge are extent of my trucks. Lol. Skills light on all accounts.

Any news on when this Pete is going to be released? I would like to get one, because it looks very similar construction to Revells "Can do" wrecker kits.

The "Can-Do" is based off this truck !

Yes the Can-Do/Will-Do wreckers and many other Peterbilt 353 and 359 kits are based on this kit, even the Marmon...but that's not that correct.
Most of them are the same base kit with added parts for the other versions.

OK! but when is it supposed to be released?

It'll be out in Europe first being a RevellAG kit, so it'll be Summer at least,before we see it here.
