Mike, Cool glider !

When I first built the glider, many modelers had no idea what it was. I came from the Northwest and logging is my roots and we built up several gliders. Even Gordon Fast Frieght built a couple of walk-in KW sleepers in 1976.

Love the stripe job on this, tasteful blend of colors. Nice cab stretch too. Like it a lot.

I'd like the 1:1 version taking a turn on a tight city street corner... Entertainment for bystanders at least for a couple minutes.

Here's my k123 that I built. If ever were to get an old cabovers this is what I would want it to look like. It's not crazy long but for a cabover it's strectched a bit.
