The original/official versions of the truck & jet in this set left me unimpressed, and I wasn't satisfied leaving them alone. I got a second set, my wife built it to kit specs as well, then I did as few tweaks as I could to the new copy to get the assemblies to where I'd be happy to display them in my city.
The funny thing is that a number of folks who didn't like my critical feedback in the original review claimed that I must never have seen a long-nose Peterbilt or any other proper classic American semi rig. Quite the contrary, all I wanted to do was add a big heaping scoop of 'Murica to LEGO's design!
Keep on truckin!
