Hey guys, started with this kenworth K108.

I bought the cabin from Auslowe, and an second hand Revell K100.

Made fueltanks from 1,5 mm alu sheet.

Hi,

 

Nice start to the Kenworth - those Aussie trucks are a great take on the American designs.  What did you think of the quality of the Auslowe cab?

 

Cheers,

 

Jim

Thanks guys, it's in the paintshop now and then wait on the arrival of my decals from the states.

 

The quality is really good, no twisting or sanding.

I cut out the door and headlights, that was the only sanding besides little flash in the windows.

Only the instructions are minimal. But thats not such an problem

This look good when done. I've noticed that there seem to be a few European guys building our Aussie trucks...  B)
