You should rip that CD and upload it on a file site so we all can view it.


The actually prototype looks more polished aluminum than reflective chrome.

I built that kit when it first came out and I have another one on the shelf, unopened.

I agree...I worked for Pro-Petroleum here in Az. for about 2years...Spent alot of time staring at my real trailer thinking of the Revell model!

Jeff, don't feel bad man, the kit (american superliner) I'm working with also is from the same company ;) and so far I have found out the frame rails was two (2) different leights. Not to mention I notice where the dang mold lines are at on the cab floor is also off. The floor pose to set level with the bottom of the door edges and in the kit they do not. I had to lower the floor down and still are working on it yet. I'm not sure if my friend just by chance got one of there off kits by mistake or what.

Hehehehe...still better than the 'old' AMT kits...I put the re-released 'Freightliner' back in the box!

Wow.....Great info!
So 1995-2004 for the kit.
The 2005 or newer window mods and mirrors should be easy. Did they go to the square spot window on the lower pax door in 2005?
The other thing that stands out is the wiring harness/plug cover on the bottom drivers side. The top six pictures you posted only show the openings for the harness', but I seem to remember the the cover on the Super 18 I drove and it was a late 2004. Man I should have taken pictures of that truck!
Arrgh...I was thinking 2005.I have yet find a specific truck yet to do though.
Tim thank you for your help...you seem to have pictures for everything possible!...Now if I could only get you over to the dark side.....Kenworth..... :D

But then again, I didn't pay $71.... :unsure:


Ouch..........
Neither did I. $50.00 is what I gave if memory serves...It had survived a move to current house and sitting at the bottom of the packing box. So when I pulled it out the other day and had look... :o What was once nice chrome had some scratches and a lot of broken glue joints!
So the decision was made to start fresh.
But yours sure does look awesome! :D :D :D

Well...after thinking it over....Here we go right or wrong!

The pics on Daniel's Firewall Pics are an '08+ cab and the locations of things will be different than a pre-'08 truck.

I'm gonna need a lot of input...What I was looking at his pic's for was the placement of the hood bumpers and such. I'm not sure what year the "New Italeria 378" is...If I stick with the photo you took of the white cab on the rack and Daniel's pic's I should be o-kay? correct?
I noticed that the most of the electrical and thru the firewall hose's are the basically same between yours and his? This can be made as an '08 I hope?
