I got into building models by my older brother, which was over 50 years ago, and we still love building them. However, my brother has problems building complex kits due to his health. He had built the car transport kit, and had his cars on it. He bought the MPC Mack truck kit to go with it, but he messed it up so badly I tried but couldn't fix it. So I told him to pick out another truck kit and I would build it for him. He chose this kit, and I kept my y word and built it for him. I remember this kit when it first came out, and it doesn't show its age, except for a little bit of flash that needs to be removed. The instructions are excellent, and now have a paint guide that it didn't have before. The only problem I had with this kit is the tires. The inside diameter of the tires is larger that the diameter of the rims, and they kept getting loose, especially the front tires when I went to move it. Also the metal axles are too long, and as a result the rear wheels stick out too fat. It's nice of AMT to rerelease these old kits as they bring back a lot of memories. All you need to remember when building this kit is one thing-patience! You can't build it in a day, but if you take your time it is a great addition to a model truck collection.
