Another significant new one

Fortunately these pictures aren't bogus. These are from the Kenworth website.
It looks photoshoped.
Right on the nose! Notice the brand new cab, different from all others including the W900.
Kenworth T880 vocational. Not a bad looking truck.

They do look photoshopped, but according to the press release from Kenworth, are supposed to be available mid summer.

Did they wash the tread section of the tires before shooting the picture on the one in the quarry?
Sure are clean for having just rolled over a road mix covered road.

We can all at least be glad that Paccar isn't designing one 'generic' cab/hood and slapping Pete or KW badges on it where appropriate. Brand loyalty still must mean something to those guys.
Anyway- I like it. I'd love to see more subjects like this in kit form- maybe not this truck in particular, but more late model vocational trucks.
