AMT 1/25 1934 Ford PickUp

SKU: AMT1120

This kit includes parts to build the truck as a stock, custom, or service truck. The body, frame, chassis, and interior parts are nicely detailed and decently molded, but many of the smaller parts, including much of the chrome, have very soft detail, and the mold halves do not line up very well, resulting in a lot of misshapen parts and cleanup work for the modeler. The tires are also nicely detailed, but the pad printed whitewalls are not properly centered. I like that two complete engines are included, though one of them is entirely chromed. I got this kit to build as the service truck option, but the winch on the towing frame looks more like a toy than a scale model. On the plus side, it allows the modeler to apply his scratch-building skills to make it look more realistic. The parts are numbered on the sprues, but not on the instructions, so one must pay very close attention to ensure one is using the correct part.
