That T2000 sure is neat......... But a lot of work ,it kinda looks like the d'elegant kit. From a few years back wish I had got the Freightliner he made.

Nice work The blinkers seem to be the right size, so I would leave them the way you traced them already. I have a concern about the fog light hole location on the passenger side though. It seems to be a little to far to the right compared to the driver's side. Check it out on your pictures. But otherwise this truck is taking shape very nicely. I'm always surprised how you Europeans are so interested and thorough in your North American truck builds! Bon travail Mec!

bonjour Robert!!

I like your french sentence!

you'r right for the fog light! the hole were here ,its the kit, perhaps can I repear this! ..... I shall re-drill it!!!!

I have just finish the windshield

American trucks are legends in Europe for the lenght, big sleeping-box, big engines, small driving cab with old movies like Convoy or Duel

there is an official dealer for Kenworth in France, And Mack Belong to Renault trucks/Volvo

Mack was imported in Europe since the end of WWI , and B and R models in the end of 50'

and now we can see "Ice road Truckers" on TV

 Salut Thierri, je suis de Montréal et je suis francophone! Your english is actually pretty good, some anglophone people who write in forums sometimes do worse!

And yes, some of the trucks we have in North America are pretty awesome! Just to be different I'd like to model an americanized prototype of a cabover Volvo someday.
