FOR THE MODELER: This review covers the AMT Fruehauf Texaco Tanker Trailer in 1:25 scale. This is a Skill Level 2 kit with over 100 parts molded in white and chrome and includes rubber tires and metal axles. The kit is out of production but can still be found in hobby shops and online as it was produced on multiple box 1 arts and with different decals over the years. The latest release is the Shell Tanker Trailer kit #918.  The kit builds up to represent a fuel trailer from the 70’s era but can still be seen on today’s roads. As for the buildup it is fairly simple with the main tank in four parts that assemble into a cylinder. The frame and chassis attach to that. For the advanced builders I would recommend using metal foil to create a chrome tank. The chassis fit is fair for its age and overall it builds up well. The decals in this boxing do represent the typical Texaco tanker of the period. Overall size is: Length: 20”, Width: 4-1/2”, Height: 6-3/4”.
