Peterbilt 359 California Hauler
By enough35046 February 17, 2015
Another great kit from AMT's reproduction line. This is one of very few day cabs available. The bottom of the box shows all the parts in the kit. This is a fairly easy model to construct and an awesome addition to model truck builders collection.Kit is also highly detailed.

Great kit
By jeremy.s.michels1 July 19, 2015
This is a great semi and perfect for any one of AMTs trailers. The instructions are fairly easy to follow. Due to the age of the kit, there is quite a bit of flash that needs to be cleaned up on almost every single part. The only issue I have with the kit are the chrome pieces. When cutting the pieces off the sprue, the clean up tends to take the chrome plating off, and it needs to come off in order for the glue to work anyways. I took all of it off and then repainted it a chrome color. I would recommend this to anyone that is a fan of semis.

Great Kit
By HEAVY_D64 December 21, 2015
Great kit for your collection. Being this kit is a reissue be ready for cleanup. Flash was heavy on the cab and some of the body parts. Fit wasn't an issue, the fit was good. The instructions were clear and I didn't have any problems understanding them. The detail was excellent on this older kit, how ever the chrome was the real issue. The chrome flaked off while I was cleaning it up and this required more touch up then usual. I painted the cab dark blue metallic with a silver stripe down the side. The interior was done in black and light gray. Looks good on the shelf and I just need to find the right trailer for it. I would recommend this model to all builders. Just be ready to clean.

Good re-issed kit of a very old subject
By rarem37 December 26, 2015
This is a nice re-issue that allows you to build a lot of versions of the truck. Unfortunately it is a very old truck. The molds are showing their age as there is a lot of flash on the parts.
