Yeah. Romell has been missing as well as Mr. Obsessive and Sauber. All 3 are really good builders that I've been able to learn from.

Jim, I seen Mr. Obsessive post yesterday (I think) that he was taking a break and that was why he was not around for a while, and Sauber I don't know.

As for Romell, I think I seen him post in another one of his theads he has been really busy and just hasn't had much time, I just hope he gets less busy soon! :lol:

Glad to hear some news from you again! I have a Zen attitude when it comes to models; things will be finished when it's their time. I've been messing with a very simple Heller 1/43 Citroen 2CV, and enjoying every prolonged minute of it!

Well I decieded that if I was gonna build a more modern Kenworth I have to make some changes right off the bat, so in this installment I was able to modifiy (not scratch build) the cab and sleeper. The resin cab i bought fell short of being Kenworth correct so follow along as I make some corrections......enjoy

this is the resin cab as it came....the windows are wrong and the cab hieght is also wrong so we'll fix that now....
Posted Image

here the window has been corrected , I removed the post in the window and I also reshaped it i also added 5 scale inches to the bottom of the cab. Not quit done yet but its better
Posted Image

the front window had a seperator in the middle also so i removed it , here I have the sleeper that came with the kit ready to be modified
Posted Image

Posted Image

This section had to be cut out because the more modern sleepers are intergrated onto the cab.....
Posted Image

See where Im going???
Posted Image

nice work but i would have started with the amt t600 cob so you had the bunk and curved windshield..
