"78 ford"
I love this truck it is a great addition to my truck dioramas and garages I love building trucks and this one definitely has a lot of different ways you could build it and that’s the beauty of this truck you can chose to lift it lower it keep it stock height or what ever else you can imagine I definitely am going to put another one in our stash and you can not complain about the price on this truck Pros: easy on the wallet, Very detailed, nicely casted, lots of possibilities, great for dioramas CONS: minimal flash if you are thinking of picking up this kit then do it it is a lot of fun to build this kit and you will have a lot of fun with it and it will look good for dioramas or whatever you want to make it for

"Good kit some flash"
Good subject,Good fit clear parts are very clean. Like the decals but tricky to lay down.

"78 ford pickup"
I was looking forward to building this kit. When it arrived i found several mistakes in the representation of this truck. The 1;1 truck of this is a 3/4 ton camper special with a 9 foot bed. this kit builds into a 1/2 ton truck that was not available from Ford in that configuration. I was highly disappointed in this kit. I had several areas that didnt fit together very well.The placement of the transfercase and the drive shafts being one of the areas. I didnt care for the wheels and tire combination. I swapped in a parts box set of wheels and tires.The exhaust system left alot to be desired.I would have liked to see a better set of outside mirror in chrome instead of white plasic. I build alot of kits and was highly disappointed in this kit.

"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.


Due to small parts that could cause a choking hazard please kee away from children 3 years of age and younger.
