DAF XF105 Smoky Jr.

"East bound and down, loaded up and truckin'
We gonna do what they say can't be done
We've got a long way to go and a short time to get there
I'm east bound, just watch ol' Bandit run"


Are you ready for some serious truckin'?  Is the urge to put the pedal to metal and hit the wide open roads almost more than you can bear?  Feel like you're whole life is a dead-end street and you're stuck in your current situation?

Never fear!  Even though you may be stuck at home or a dead-end job you can still feel some of the thrill of the open road as you hop in your semi-truck cab, fire it up and cruise the highways and byways of America.

Italeri makes it possible (sort of) with its latest Show Trucks 1/24 Scale Semi-Truck model kit release: DAF XF105 Smoky Jr.

Talk about a dream machine!  The DF XF105 Smoky Jr. model kit recreates one of the most outstanding semi-trucks ever designed and built.  Brimming with chrome from bumper to bed the model kit pours on the details with triple windshield wipers, oversize grill, heavy duty bumpers, wheel fenders, multiple body and roof lights huge front and side windows, sunshield, six tires and one spare, full interior and exterior details right down to the realistic dash, side panels, doors, seats, accessories, full undercarriage and engine recreations, rubber hoses and more, just like a real truck.

Slap on some paint, peel off the adhesive decals and follow the easy-to-understand assembly instructions and before you know it you're on your way to a big rig imagination trip. 


Eight part trees and a chassis, with tires, make up the kit.  Parts detach easily with no fuss or muss.  It's a trucker's dream come true!
