thanks all
I shall use an old K100 axle for the third one
I don't change cab and Hood
it will be wrong but it is to do something else than the T2000
I'm working on it
have a good day

Hey Thierry, isn't this kit supposed to be a day cab already? I was wondering why you were working so hard at filling the rear panel. I'll be watching your work.

AHHH, just like all the other RoG US type truck offerings, no day cab only a cheesy insert that sort of fits the walk thru for the bunk.  But at least they give you that.  Italeri does not even offer a filler panel.

The daycab plug in the kit is more like some aftermarket or shop-built plug to convert a former sleeper tractor into a daycab. I'm not a fan of that look.

thanks Tim and Robert and Richard and the other

I don't like the rear panel with the large "walking open" (in french lol), I prefere with small window!
