Thanks Scott! If I could score another one I would. I see them ocasionaly on eBay but they end up going for around 40 bucks or so. I cant afford that right now but someday I will pick another one up. This was actualy a nice kit for AMT. Went together well. Fun to build.
Chris: My plans were to try and find and old AMT Tyrone Malone Papa truck and make that the hauler for this thing. Thats another kit that brings outrageous price but I will have one someday to haul this. Thanks for the comments
They just might Chris! You never know. I'd like to get one of those as well but they bring big bucks too. I made my own pulling truck from a Chevy 1500 pick up. Threw a 4 x4 suspension underneath it. Slid a full blown funny car motor in it! Heres a pick pf it. It's not quite done. I have to add the pull bar on the back, the weight up front and a couple of other little things on it. Remember this started life as a c 1500.
Sorry for the bad pics, they were taken with my old camera. The tires and rims are from a 1/64th scale die cast monster truck
Let me get you some pics Chris. Wont be till tomorrow sometime. I can try and pull some of my photobucket. I'm not quite sure if I have any clear pics of the interior. If I dont i'll take some new ones.
since everyone has posted pics of pull trucks here. this is one i picked up on thebay to rebuild when I couldnt score a kit. Ive since scored a kit so i don't know its future. for now it stays as is, my wife likes it even tho it is nowhere near as pretty as many of my models.
I think i may just rebuild it in the same color combo..very mid to late 70s, but if the wife likes it then its cool. its not a glue bomb at least. for the age of the kit its pretty decent. the 6 pack big block car motor needs to get the heave ho for a Hemi lol.
The problem is the wife likes it now and ive got a few hundred other projects waiting. so I figure why mess with it if she likes it. its one of only a few models ive ever put up an she said "I like that" I really don't get it cause i see it as a bit sloppy vs other models I have. what do ya do? I will post the one i built from the monster kit when it first came out.
I think i built this when i was 17..20 years ago. raising blocks were removed from the springs. I do not remember where the tires came from or most of the extras..I still do not see why Amt couldnt somewhat re tool this kit to be something like i built here. even if they re poped the monster im sure many would be happy.
