The AA-60 should be hot! (Some pun intended.) I started a scratch conversion of the MA3 firefighter some years back with good results. Unfortunately I bore easily so it is still a work in progress. This should be a nice addition to the Trumpeter/MAZ 8x8 line!

ANOTHER truck I must have!
If they're saying Sept., then that means Oct./Nov. In the U.S., right?
Anyone hear anything about the HEMTT firetruck? They announced that quite some time ago. Thanks for any info you may have.

What I've observed is that - from the release month posted, allow 2-3 months for a kit to hit the retail shops. As for the HEMTT firetruck, given that they already have the box art, and posted built-up photos, it's bound to be out soon. Part of their October list, perhaps (?).

Thanks, Michael!

I hope I can find the link when I finally do have the kit and get around to building it! Some great shots, there! Thanks!
