"Time Traveling"
knightstalkr62
My wife decided I needed an orange model in my collection. I'm not crazy about orange, but I chose this kit because if she had a real one she'd take it out and see if she could get it stuck. I created some personalized license plates on the computer to make it truly hers. If I had been given this without the box, I probably would have mistaken it for an AMT rather than a Revell. The interior has no window cranks or door handles, the firewall has no brake cylinder or other 3D parts to glue to it, and the chassis/frame/exhaust is all one molded piece. If you choose to go with a color other than the olive drab, then it is light on decals as well because most of them are camouflage. There are two little tabs that hang down underneath the front of the cab, presumably to help align the front bumper. However, the bumper aligns to one side or the other, because one of the tabs is right in the way if you try to center the bumper. I had to cut off one of the tabs to get the bumper to center up. This isn't one of Revell's better kits. The QC is more indicative of an AMT.

"Great canvas for a farm truck"
sagtbone
My wife asked me to build a farm truck for her supervisor. So we picked the 1978 GMC 4x4 model kit. This was my first 4x4 kit. The assembly of this kit is fairly easy. There was only a minimum amount of flash. The instruction sheet was well illustrated and easy to follow. I had very little trouble assembling this kit. This would be a great kit for a beginning modeler to move from level one to level two builds. The cab aligns very well with the bed. The only issue I had were with the wheel and tire fitment. The rim does not want to rest in the tire very well, but if handled carefully, it will fit. My wife's supervisor was pleased with the kit. I did include the roll bar nor the spare tire or the fuel can as I just wanted to replicate a basic 4x4 farm truck.

 
"childhood dreams relived"
rajohnston5555 (mile high)
The amount of hours spent hunched over your next dream vehicle, in this case a '73-'80 Square body 4X4 model, Is time well spent. For those hours, immersed in details, options, themes, and colors schemes; I'm a 9 year old boy who just cashed in his lawn mowing money, dumped his bike in the front yard and ran in with a box of dreams. 42 years later... that same kid writes a review while waiting for two more of his boxes of dreams. I enjoy this model for it's versatility and detail. The model body comes in white, encouraging you to prep for paint and plan your dreams. there are more higher priced models, but I enjoy the ability of being able to add my own details and customize as I go. I will confess to trying to decide on a paint scheme for the adult (and very rusty '75) version sitting in my driveway. what good is a boy without a dream? thank you Hobbylinc and revell! I have uploaded pictures of two versions already built or mostly built and will add more when they arrive and take on their own attitude. Heck, for under twenty bucks. I'll probably have the makings of a decent truck(Model) show. BTW, only issue-ish is that you should clean out the drivers side hood hinge with an exacto-knife. simple fix, better hood fit. Happy dreaming!!!
