What's the one you WILL build one day, no matter what?

Yes, those big Kenworths would make great models. By the way, both Kenworths are not C500s, those are 963s, spec'd much heavier then a C500. Notice the hood, fenders, head lights, and grill shape, the grill is shaped like a wedge with the vertical Kenworth name plate in the middle.
Yeah- fell asleep at the switch ID-ing it. But still, that's the one I'm going to build!

Two custom Auto Carriers
KW and a Pete Stinger style.
Both of them will have my scratch built parts on them.
Stainless Bumpers,Air Breathers,Battery box's,Big Pipes,Tool box bodies on the rear like the Can Do wrecker.
Detailed rims and Engine lines Air lines where they will be seen,Hyd lines,Aluminum Hyd Cylinders.
A lot of stainless trim and a nice set of my Air and Electric lines.
And Custom Hood's
Loaded with some nice rides.
This is one built some time back not a lot of custom stuff on this one but it got me to thinking about the other two listed here.
These are my scratch built lines that I will be using.

The Scale Firehouse is back up as of this afternoon.
That Squad body looks like the old 10-8 Hobbies box, which I have the original mold for.
I based all of my measurements off of a Code 3 Squad, (using a micrometer!), and scaling of photos found of the net.

Carl, no other info on these. I've seen only a few more pictures of FWD 8x6 with newer dodge cabs. I've collected a few other photos of these cabovers and will be using lots of modeling creative liberty's to pull this one off. One, for example will I'm using Plaskit floatation wheels/tires all around because there are no wheels that I've found come close to the prototype.
