PLease let me know if you have a new or lightly started complete kit.
...this might be the same basic kit as the MPC so-called "switchers" T. The frame and engine sure look the same, not sure about the fenders.
If so, AMT reissued it within the last decade. (2003 Toy Fair Exclusive.) It's called 1925 T Rod, kit 38018. This is NOT the same kit as the much more common AMT '25 T that can be built stock or rod.
Remember, to a real modeler, kit instructions are just somebody else's opinion.
