Hi,

 

Sharp looking Kenworth - what technique did you use to get the quality paint work?

 

Cheers,

 

Jim

i painted the copper all over the cab then taped off the stripes and painted the bronze, after taping the stripes i used dullcote to help seal the tape to prevent bleed through when i sprayed the topcoat.after that i cleared the complete cab.

You have done a great job, amazing paint combo, nice and clean build.

What you need now is to hook a Moebius 53ft trailer with maching colors and there you are.

Hiya, fabulous model, real sharp build. Hope mine turns out half as good.

can i ask how you got the angle of the axle brackets sorted? I'm short about a half dozen hands trying to mock up the engine/transmission/drive shaft/axle/drive/axle... Grrr...

just a lot of test fitting and fiddling around with it until i was happy with the way it looked. the instruction sheet is kinda unclear so you just have to kind of guess at it.
