Italeri Accessories Packs 720, 764, and 776

Recommended Posts

I recently nabbed three Italeri parts packs and thought I'd take some photos and show people what's in the boxes. 

We'll begin with 720- Truck Accessories for European and American trucks.


On the box top we see illustrations of what's included- various parts and three figures depicting Waylon Jennings, your creepy uncle, and former BBC Top Gear presenter Richard Hammond.

Here's the engraved detail on the mud flaps close up.


The other sprue contains more parts and some pieces to the figures. 


Here's a close up of the detail on the bolt cutter and some of the air fittings.


I consider this kit worht buying due to the chromed smokestacks and cast six-spoke wheels shown here, but you also get some nice air horns, a variety of lights, and more. 


Clear lenses are also included, along with coated wire for use as air and electrical lines.


Lots of decal graphic choices, though the US plates are way too large- they might look about right on a 1:16 scale vehicle. The European plates look much closer to correct in size. 


764's box art is similar, showing what is included. Among much more, here you get another Michelin man as well as what appears to be the love child of the Big Boy logo and the Elephant Man. You also get not one but TWO creepy uncle figures!


Someone at Italeri must be very fond of Bibendum, aka The Michelin Man.


If you're thinking this one doesn't seem to include as many pieces as 720, you're right. 


The chrome sprue gets the job done, and includes plated cab lights with separate clear orange lenses. Sadly- the clear parts sprue is missing from my particular example. 


The decal sheet is simple but contains some interesting and useful markings. The topless blonde graphics are a nice touch. :)

This sprue is dominated by the lift gate components, and the six spoke cast wheels. 


Here's the detail present on the cast wheels, and some of the lift gate components. 


Here we have the components for the Effer knuckle-boom crane. This one is molded in a red-orange, the other two I've had were molded in gray and orange, respectively. 


Here's where I struck out. The first two of these I bought had the soft vinyl Michelins. This one has the old two-piece plastic Michelins. Perhaps this is an earlier issue of the kit? 


And the decals- most of these are for the crane but the lift gate is not overlooked.

Great kits, I grab them when ever I see them. I must have about 50 Michelin men and 25 of the Fruit of the Loom chefs. most every truck in Europe has at least 2 Michelin men on  it some where.
