Convoy is a great title!

This might be interesting. I’ve failed miserably at finishing builds this year, so won’t commit now, but this is definitely interesting.

Sure are!

I too have a high failure rate, but it doesn’t stop me trying! (They do say the definition of insanity is doing the same thing repeatedly and expecting a different result…)

And I’d love to see some big-scale chrome rigs in the mix! Had the Kenworth conventional tractor back in the day - what a beast! That was when Movin’ On was on the television…

I built a few AMT 1/25th scale Truck and trailer kits for my brother back in the late 70’s. Not so fond memories of poor fit, warped parts and short shots… and of course he wanted scratch built parts to ‘Australianise’ them.

It is my understanding that Round2 has been cleaning up the molds in their latest releases of the classic kits or at that is what he has been reporting on some of the builds. hpiguys Workshop - YouTube

Considering those kits weren’t new when I was building them nearly 50 years ago, it’s high time the tooling got refreshed! But back then they seemed awesome…

Come on in, we’ll put the kettle on! This should be a fun campaign and I’m looking forward to seeing what everyone builds. What did you have in mind? (You mentioned a photo - can you share it or a link to it?)

My F-350 dually from the 2021 build never got finished, I’d like to finish it for this build and maybe add another after.

I’m eyeing the Aoshima 1/72 JGSDF 3.5t Fuel tanker for aviation that I started back in 2023? :wave:
