"great build"
it is a good build. there were no issues with the model and it all fit together great. even has a place to cutout in the hood if you want to turn it into Bigfoot #1,2,3,4

"For the more advanced modeler"
If you’re looking for a late 70s pickup this is it. However, be it known that this is a typical amt kit with vague instructions and many fitment issues. Although there are potentially many things to talk about with the cons of this kit, my biggest issue was with the tires, wheels and wheel backs. Like a square peg in a round hole. Good candidate for aftermarkets. Having said that, time and patience will produce something nice, and creativity can produce something stellar. Pics will soon follow.

Somethings amiss with this kit, I owned the real truck and the body seems a bit off, but hey its a model! I was challenged to find the right wheel tire combo as I didn't care for the ones supplied but I think that may be an ailment of mine! with the right setup it makes a beefy looking truck! I really like the 2WD 4WD option and the tonneau cover. I thought the supplied exhaust was a bit on the wimpy side, but nothing that can't be corrected. I may buy a second one and try converting it to a 2WD shortbed version. this is a fairly easy build and by looking at the pictures from other enthusiasts the sky's the limit! Enjoy!
