Matchbox Kenworth T 800 roll off is great platform for customs and the working features make this one a great addition to any truck lovers collection.
Diecast and plastic construction with removeable roll off bin that has an opening door for unloading. The cab and fenders are diecast, finished in gold paint, with a black plastic chassis and tarp frame. Chrome plastic grill, battery boxes and tanks and gray plastic stack and roll off box. The roll off box has an opening rear door with a barrel type snap on hinge that keeps the door closed with slight pressure. The box slides off the rails of the lift bed, which raises and lowers with a gray plastic ram that slides back and forth in a slot in the cab/fender casting. The interior is molded with the chassis in black. There are two parting lines on the hood that detract a little bit, and the emblems on the hood are plain rectangle bars, without the Kenworth name. At this scale, the lettering would have been muddy, so it was best left off, in my opinion. The cab has cast in lines for a sun roof and cab corner windows, and roof lights and air horns are cast onto the roof. Wide tires with chrome rims roll this one along, and safety stripe decals on the roll off box and rear fenders are sharp and bright. This one will look great on a train layout, and would require very little work to detail. The T 800 is a popular choice with heavy haulers, refuse and construction companies, and will look good as a mixer, dump truck and prime mover.

Matchbox did a very nice job on this casting, and the custom possibilities are endless. A little detail painting and this is ready for use on a train layout or diorama. If you are a truck collector, this is worth picking up.
