Thanks for sharing Tim. Looking forward to this kit. 

The decal sheet is superb, being a motorcycle guy, lot of possibilities for other builds.

I'm so glad to hear this kit is being re-released. I have to build a '72 Dodge crew cab for a project. A couple of these kits plus a grill will do the trick.

Perfection is achieved not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away.

Nice preview! Thanks for putting that out there. I wasn't aware of the 4WD option.

I'll be following along if you do a build here. My dad had a '72 crew cab, and I had a Rupp mini bike. Been waiting for this kit for some time. Anyone know where I can find a 25th scale trencher?

My favorite color is clear. I am also ambidexterous, I can screw up equally well with either hand. I am 53 years old and been building for most of that time. :)

Daddy....just want to be clear here that although there are a number of 4x4 parts in the box, there aren't enough to build the original 4x4 version of this kit tool. 

This kit is being marketed only as a 4x2.   (I suspect that the rest of the missing 4x4 parts will eventually resurface in a subsequent Round 2 reissue of one of the original 4x4 versions of this kit tool.....)

Thanks for your comments on the review, too ....TIM

Looks like a must have. Thanks for sharing. I do wish Round2 would include gauge decals like Revell.

I'm told that they are planning to include gauge decals whenever possible going forward....TIM
