Hi Marty
Can't go wrong with a big truck. Does this have plastic or rubber tyres?

They are plastic in this kit. But the parts are very good and not much flash on them.

Hi Marty, Off to a good start, A classic piece of US kit, I'm not familiar with the Hobby Boss kit so this will be very interesting. All the best with it.

A great kit to follow. I see you have PE bumpers. Were they from the kit or do you have an AM set? Any thoughts of what you are going to put in the back for cargo?

Steve they are part of the kit. You actually get quite a bit for your money.

You also get some wire to make the supports struts for the engine.

Thanks John your always welcome mate. I'm just waiting for my little one to go for a nap so I can do some more. The driveline parts were a bit of a pain to be honest but it's not looking to bad now thank God.

Hi Marty
Good steady progress. It does look a nice kit. I asked about the tyres because I personally hate those rubber ones. They won't paint. Plastic is far nicer and these look OK.
