That thing is a monster. Can't wait to see it done.

I barely have room for my 1/24 trucks and trailers.

Roy, The K-100 Aerodyne is my favorite style truck of ANY era! It's looks and lines just talk to me... I've done some 'silly but brave' things in my modeling lifetime but never would have thought to convert a Conventional into a COE... Much less, in 1/16 scale... scratchbuilt interior and engine to boot... what engine did the kit have in it originally?

All the 1/16 Monogram trucks have 3408 CAT'S ...I just wanted a Cummins NTCC400BC!!! Just to be different...

Looks great! Like the work on the cummins as well.....I know how much work this project is; I have one at about the same place; only I am doing a flat top; my truck is going to be a full custom; so I plan on doing a detroit 12 to go in it; along with an Alison auto trans...Again; great work scaling up..........Matt

Hey Gordon!!This is just a "Test" to see if I could do it, Now I know I can...But,I plan on a second truck to be made as a "Buck" to cast, If...I can find a resin caster to do the cab and interior and engine only... I don't know anything about resin casting!!! I would be glad to share but right now it's wait and see,And I know that sux!!! And you also know theres a very limited market for something like this...Alot of things factor into the feasibility of this being done,Especially the affordability or cost to the consumer and be able to make some kind of profit at the same time...If you aren't making any money...Then theres no reason to produce it...All I can say right now is...Only time will tell...Thanks Roy
