Right,Gino, I pre-ordered mine two months ago, trusting that the production plastic would not be a let-down. Looks like a great companion to my Cold War horde. The top bows and the safety strap, the positionable windshield panels.... I only hope I don't have to make the canvas tie-down loops myself, as was the case on another recent truck.

where have you pre-ordered it from?

Through my local hobby shop, Burbank House of Hobbies (houseofhobbies.com). I believe Stevens International in Los Angeles is the US distributor for AFV. Still waiting for a recommended retail price.
