Almost everyone loves the sight of an off road monster truck, from little children up to adults. Watching these trucks ramp over cars or even run cars over is very interesting and entertaining. Grave Digger is based on a Chevy panel van body and is one of the most popular and recognizable monster truck on the Monster Jam circuit. Beginning in the early eighties Grave Digger’s popularity skyrocketed when a rival truck failed to show up one day and Grave Digger offered to crush some demo cars as a replacement stunt. As a result Grave Digger became so popular that the owners have built many of these trucks so they can be seen at events all over the country at the same time.

For the Modeler: This Revell Grave Digger Monster Jam Truck 1:25 scale, skill level 1 SnapTite kit #85-1978 is easy to build but looks great on the shelf. It’s perfect for introducing a youngster to the world of modeling. This kit features 35 pieces molded in black, gray, green and clear; easy snap assembly, 3” high monster tires, a complete drivetrain and bright peel-and-stick decals. Although this was an Out-of-Box only review, with a little extra work it could also be the basis for a great replica of the real Grave Digger for the intermediate builder. Finished dimensions are: Length: 8-1/4″, Width: 5-3/4”, Height: 5″.
