If you are looking for a simple, quick build, this is the kit for you.

All pieces are separately bagged; the parts trees are white, clear, and chrome. There are four offroad-style no-name tires, and a nicely printed decal sheet.

Following the well-laid-out instruction booklet, the eight-piece engine was assembled and detail-painted to match reference photos.

The chassis and drivetrain consist of only four pieces. The parts mount to the chassis with tab-in-slot and peg-in-hole mounting points, almost snap-kit-style.

The three-piece wheels and tires were detailed and assembled and installed on the axles. There is no brake detail on the back side of the wheels.

The truck’s main body consists of three parts: the body, bed/back wall insert, and hood. The dimensions look correct, and the body is molded cleanly, with minimal cleanup required.

Its simplicity makes this little truck a joy to build – for the younger builder who wants to step up from a snap kit, to the experienced modeler who wants to have a nice, stress-free build.
