"New" truck kits
Posted by MR TOM SCHRY on Sunday, August 15, 2021 4:26 PM

Hi everyone,

Just a quick question for those of you who enjoy building the big rig kits.  Round 2 recently reissued their International Transtar COP-4070A kit and everyone on youtube is praising AMT for "tweaking" the molds.  I saw on ModelRoundUp that Round2 is reissuing the GMC General and the GMC Astro 95 in the Miller Beer markings.  Does anyone know if these kits were also tweaked by AMT or are they the same old kits from the 1970s with possibly new markings?  I have those two kits, in earlier boxings, in my stash already and I don't want to buy the same old kits.  

Thanks,

TomS.

Thanks modeltruckbuilder!  You answered my question and gave me a lot to think about as far as new kit purchases in the future.

I love building AMT big rigs they are a little more work than other kits I guess its due to the age of the molds and other factors But I like the extra work Its what I enjoy about the hobbie I just started the C-900 tilt cab hostess truck and It is an amazingly fun build
