Who am I:
I am 50+-year-old Industrial Engineer/Manager responsible for the development and implementation of chemical coating-removal systems aimed primarily at the automotive, medical and military industries. I am married with three children, two cats and live in Sandusky Ohio, the Roller Coaster Capitol of the World.
I remember the first model that I built. My father gave me a
Revell submarine kit for my birthday in 1969. I clearly recall the two
of us sitting at the dining room table with one of those orange tubes of
Testors cement putting that thing together. It was an excellent bathtub
toy for many years. Prior to that my older brother had entertained my
sister and myself with aerial operas involving a 1/48 scale Monogram SBD
Dauntless and a Monogram Corsair - I still have those two planes, dusty
and worn but laden with memories that can never be replaced.
As America's love affair with the automobile blossomed the need to transport new and used vehicles from manufactures to distributors grew quickly. The trucking and rail industries created transport trailers both enclosed and open double deck units to fill this need. For the entire first half of 2015 this kit was listed as a future release from Revell with actual release date pushed back more than once. By June 1, 2015 it had finally hit store shelves with the manufacture hype being that it was all new tooling and new decals. Here is the 2015 release of the 1/25 Automobile Transport Trailer 08/24/2015
