I don’t know where you live, but here in Michigan, USA even in the month of March, it still looks like this; grey skies, snow everywhere, and the ever-present Chevy plow truck in every parking lot, drive, and going from one to another. From October through March every year they bring out these old workhorses for snow removal so we can open up the driveways and get things moving again

For the Modeler: This skill level 2 Revell #85-7222 kit is 1:24 scale and consists of 103 highly detailed plastic pieces molded in white, clear and chrome plated pieces. This kit also features separate frame pieces, soft black tires, chrome-plated parts and decals with stock and custom graphics. After a long hiatus, we finally have a classic GM pickup back on the shelves! Back in the spring of 2012 I had heard rumors of Revell’s upcoming re-release of their ’77 short box pickup, which was exciting enough, but finding out that an all new snow plow would come with it, was icing on the cake. GM made millions of GMC pickups from 1973-1980. Unfortunately, most of the kits that replicated them were stepside models, with just a couple of “smooth side” versions. Until now, finding those kits would cost you a pretty penny, If you could find one. With the re-release of Revell’s kit, the void is filled for the off road, short box truck lovers in the modeling world. You can also see more customizing ideas here for this model from Tom Schaefer’s previous SnapShot review at this page.
