Here's a little something I found at my local crafts store yesterday:

And here's a side view of the package:

Out of curiosity, has anyone seen or heard of this company before?

The package says most parts can be removed from the sheet using a pair of tweezers, and that tweezers can be used to bend and twist the locking tabs. Hopefully, this will be a neat little project to work on!

Thanks for the words of advice, Ezra. BTW, I also picked up this kit while I was at the store:

It's not that I'm enamored of the truck itself, it's more about the Sinclair brand, something that disappeared around October of 1973...but when I was out west, I saw they still had some Sinclair stations out there. The bottom side of the kit (or the backside) shows that you can also put stickers on it to show it's a tanker for the USAAF (which, if I'm not mistaken, would date this vehicle to before 1947).
