I have a number of projects on the go at present.  I'm in the process of building a small fleet trucks.  All are the dark blue, white and light blue colour scheme.  This W925 is number 9 in the fleet and has the rare extended cowl.  the engine is the Clatterpillar 1693TA 425HP engine (big horsepower for the late 60s early 70s).  It has a 5 speed main with a 4 speed auxiliary brown lipe transmission.  The base kit is the AMT Kenworth T519.  The trailer is the AMT Wilson livestock trailer.

 

Thanks for looking.

Very nice! I'm a little surprised not to see a 12V71 under that hood, but then again, after seeing that Peterbilt 352 of your's... I can see you have a soft spot for Clatterpillar too! I like that trailer too, where do the trailer wheels come from? They're not from that kit are they? Very nice rig you have there!

Super addition to the fleet!  How about a line up shot or 2.

thanks for the comments.

 

A 12V71 would be interesting, maybe in a later build. 

 

The wheels are from the kit.  You can change them out if you wanted.  But I thought I would stick with box stock for this build.

Thanks Richard.

 

The other two trucks are not finished yet (work in progress).  If you have a look at my Fotki albums you will see the progress to date.
