C'mon Paul. At least it's a new truck... not like the 're-visioning' of the KH in black that came out this past year - What a crock-of ----- that was!!

Let's not discourage the Tamiya team from creating new truck bodies & frames. I'd love to see some more models in the near future ... like Marmon, AutoCar, or even a Studebaker. Those would be pretty sweet!!

This truck may not be to everyone's taste but I am happy to see them put out a new US model.

Not really my style truck and also not a long nose pete or KW, but a small step in the right direction as far as targeting the us market. Maybe someday they will start producing some of the American classics.

Sneff junk like this most that drive truck do not consider a "Real US Truck" this is a JB HUNT truck this is a SWIFT truck of Schneider National, Inc. truck. Would of been better making the new KW K500 I know getting the rights they would not due but they could get it close.. Sneff this has Zero potential and will still be out sold by the king, globe and knight. Most of the euro guys dont even like it cause it is company speck.

Jay sorry to break your stones we have been asking for a real good US truck now for years and BY FAR your best US trucks you still have are the Globe Liner and the King Hauler at least they are close and we can build a real good looking truck out of them even the Knight Hauler can be made into different models so it is not to bad but this you cant do anything with.. I plan on buying one for sure I have 30 whats 31 but I plan on tanking the motor and trans out of it and the rear drives and putting trailer axles in there place painting it orange with Schneider National, Inc. logos weathering the crap out of it with "tamiya weathering kits" and wrecking it to pull behind my tow truck. I just wish you guys would celebrate better trucks even older trucks not the most hated brand and truck on the road that company steering wheel holders not "real truck drivers" run..

No stones broken. Sorry to say if it is licensed we have to work with manufacturers. Most of them are going to want to license new items that are being sold now. They want to promote their brand and that is hard to do when licensing an old design.

There is just more to it than most realize. Back in the 70's and 80's licensing was a breeze.

Just and FYI..

Thanks,

Joe

It is a let down that they did not make a better attempt at a classic American truck. They did very good with the king and globe. They look like true American otr trucks. It would have been nice to see a Mack or IH and something that you could either build a nice day cab or heavy haul truck out of it seams all their trucks are sleeper cabs?? To me This is just an example of a cheep throw away company truck.

I commend tamiya for building these trucks for us but I would like to know they take a little insite on the people that enjoy building them.

I know Greg and a new truck means we have parts to build other trucks but I dont see this helping the US hobby much it all..

No Joe I understand how all that works just stinks that the most unliked freight truck on the road is the one that comes out and I understand that you guys want a partner to go in on it with yah but it would be nice to see a truck with some class Like the new KW k500 or a Pete 389 or something other than this. At least now with the 3d printing we can build any truck we want but it would be nice to have it as a kit.. If we used a more popular truck on the road today we would get more new people into the hobby.. I hear it all the time with new people that want to get in I want this truck or I want that truck but then you have to tell them they have to custom build it and then there gone another lost sale another loss of potential of growing the hobby in the US.. I am sure many other guys cal tell you the same sort of story..

I agree with you Lmack... I am happy to see another new truck just not this one I am not a euro guy but The new Merk is a great looking truck and I will have to have one of each but the new fruiteshaker will be a wrecked load for my tow truck and low boy..

I agree it's no coal rolling western star or mack or pete but atleast it is american (kinda lol).

I would like to see more american trucks but them euro guys have us outsold for kits hands down.

Doesn't Mercedes own freightliner now? And I think already makes a licensed euro Mercedes truck too? .if that is the case. That would make licensing slightly easy knowing they can represent a popular truck in both their euro and us markets. Tamiya already had their foot in the door at Mercedes???....
