KFS was supposed to carry the A&N conversions but I don't see them on their site anymore. Has anybody bought the "australian cabover" yet?

I know A&N is still alive and they updated their site to be more customer friendly though.

This was discussed several years ago in the Yahoo MTDG.  A modeler made the masters of the Freightliner Argosy and was going to sell it thru KFS.  Mercedes Benz, which owns Freightliner wanted all types of legal information concerning the Argosy model.  KFS decided it wasn't worth offering it.

 

Andrey Myakotkin (A&N) offered a altered version and call it "Australian Cabover."  He offers an American version with left hand drive.

 

Andrey Myakotkin (A&N) has a web site, is on Facebook, is a regular poster on the Yahoo Dutch Truck Model Group and is on another prominent truck model magazine forum.

 

De Elegant models offered a Coronado.

I know, I'm quoting myself but I just bought it on the A&N site with the North American conversion...

The American conventional is going to be a late model, offered in almost any configuration. Some people are going to be mighty happy!

I received a correspondence from Andrey Myakotkin (A&N) today, there is no decision on what the American conventional will be, when it will offered and the cost.  His "goal is to make quality, interesting and detailed kit," as he put it.

Whatever it's going to be, I'm pretty sure it's going to be good!

 

Still can't get over that FLD of yours Chuck, gotta start mine soon!

Even though I would just like to have a modern Freightliner period, I have to say I would rather see the sleeper version be a set forward 70" condo instead of the small sleeper.

You know Anthony, strangely I actually like the 34", I have ideas for it already. I wouldn't like a 1:1, though, I'm a big boy and I don't think I'd fit back there! :lol:
