You know, Mike, it doesn't look half bad.  I think you did a pretty good job with it.  I like the colors.  Engine looks good, too.

Good looking truck, just enough detail to hide any flaws. Without a little modifying they are what they are, snap kits.

Looks good from here! At the very least you managed to get the tires to fit the rims properly! wiring on the engine, rusted turbo custom single headlights and nice baby moons by the way!

Thanks John,but in my case instead of a razor saw I really wanted to take a dull hatchet to it ;)

Nice looking Pete with all the extra detail and customization it's hard to tell it is a snap kit.

I stated that I must had the only ill fitting Revell kit because all the other completed ones I see seem to have a nice fit to them,mine for some reason just did not line up between the hood and cab(hood was much higher than cab) and the flooring didn't mount to the cab correctly,none of these problems I had with the snap Kenworth,I just think it was a defect in the cab because nothing on the cab fit correctly...
