  • Do you remember these??

    If so, I'm borrowing stewart's idea for get some new or even some of the old pickup kits we would like to see come back, and have no intentions of taking away from his thread, since his is for the pickup builders and not those of us who also build Heavy Commerical. I support him 100% in his effort and signed his the day after he started his thread. I feel that, like me, there are many of us who build a little of everything, and in many different scales. I bought my first and only Monogram 1/16 scale Kenworth Aerodyne in 89 or 90 and the Freuhauf flatbed to go with it a couple years later, but lost both in a house fire in 1997, along with the rest of my 200+ collection. Over the years, I have rebuilt most of the old collection and keep adding to it, but these are two noticeable gaps I have not been able to replace. I have seen quite a few on ebay, but there is no way I'm able to pay the $250-$500 I've seen them sell for. I've even seen junk parts kits sell in the $100-$200 range, and you can't even build them! I'm sure there must be a demand for these kits, and I'm planning on sending my email to Revell around the first of June or July. Please leave your first and last name if you wish to be included in the email! Thank you in advance for your support.

    P.S.: I will also be asking for the Freuhauf trailer in the email. We need something for these trucks to haul!

  • Highway - got your back on this one even though I have never built anything at that scale. Strictly 1/24 and 1/25.

  • I have two of the KW high rise sleepers, one Peterbilt and two Fruehauf trailers.  I always want one of the KW low rise sleepers but apparently they are the most rare.

     I also have some rare 1/16th scale Colin Grey aftermarket that were recast as Jaymar items.  Not as good as the original but acceptable with clean up.

    Ok, so would you like to see if Revell would reissue all three, including the flattop KW?? If so, please leave your name!
