Yeah, that is super cool but what's it supposed to be? is it a Kenworth mock up for aerodynamics testing, a sophisticated R/C or...

It's a model that was in the Kenworth show trailer that went to dealerships for the debut of the T680 last year.  We have a T880 model doing the same lap of the US.

Renshape is a urethane foam, used for machining patterns or molds.

I forget what issue it was in (help me out Tim), but Tim had an article in the magazine where he showed using Renshape to make the front of his Pete 587.

 

I did get the right model number, didn't I Tim?? :huh:

I thought it was 579, but wasn't sure, that's why since the other 86 and 87's are aeros, I thought it was the 587.
