It has been a while since I build a 1:22 scaled truck in Lego, and it has been even longer since I build a classic American cabover truck.

The Kenworth is a K100E, with a tricked out 8V92 Detroit Diesel. The colors are inspired by the rig of Northrop Enterprises, one of the rare true custom K100's running.
The truck has working doors, tiltable cab and color trimmed interior. Many parts are chromed with 'plating on plastics' technology (no paint).

The trailer is a Walker, in traditional setup. The body consists of Lego Technic panels which are chromed the same way.

And a 'ghostview' made in Photoshop to show the engine and fittings:

That's amazing! I like your "ghost cab" shot to see the engine. Very cool.

Nice! With the dual air intakes it must be a west coast twin turbo. California does produce more milk than any state.

Your rigs are cool and very clever .Do you glue them together our do you just rely on the bricks holding together them self?
