So it seems like the newer trucks are not available yet( BIG Yet) So are any older trucks available. like the Pete bull nose or the KW equivalent. I am looking at doing a either a Super semi pulling truck team or a bonniville race team semi and I want a unique truck to finish it off.

Check with Illini Replica Conversions (illinireplicaconv@ameritech.net).  They have the KW Bullnose & the Peterbilt Bubblenose, and various other older truck cabs.

Wish I could afford it. Would live to have the Emeryville.

 

Looking for a 55? White 3000.

P&P Resins offers a White 3000. It's not listed on his site yet, but he has it. How do I know this? Because I bought one from him.

I found this resin conversion of a White 3000 from Sourkraut models . I have no idea as to the availability or how long it would take to reach a customer .

Ed, Last time I tried to see they were out of them and almost everything else they have listed.

I'm not even sure they are still in operation???

That kit from SourKraut is the cab from Tim Sherman (All Seasons Collectable Toys) that Porky bought out. I'm telling you, contact Porky.

LoneStar is a 2011, and the ProStar is either a 2012 or 2013.  Yes, all of the AMT kits are from the 1970s and the Revell/Italeri kits are from the 1980s & 1990s.  But if you want soe really old stof (1940s, 50s, or 60s); you have to go resin or scratch-build.

 

Frontier Resin Designs has some cabs from the 1950s: http://www.ebay.com/...n_design/m.html

(never used them, so I cannot attest to their quality).
