Out of the new releases from Revell for June and July, 2012, I have my eyes set on their 1:24 GMC Pickup truck with Snow Plow kit 85-7222. It will be a great subject for weathering out of the aircraft and armor norm. This is indeed a very nice model kit release for the upcoming season.
A snow plow mounted to the front of a pickup truck is a common sight every winter. Featuring four wheel drive and a 350 cubic inch V-8 engine, it doesn’t take long for this GMC pickup to clean driveways. High-mounted driving lights help guide the way when darkness falls. Kit features a fully detailed snow plow, a detailed pickup bed, a mounted roll bar with driving lights, a four wheel drive suspension, separate frame pieces, soft black tires, chrome-plated parts and decals with stock and custom graphics.
