Italeri american truck frames almost all the same?

22 July 2014 - 04:30 AM

Ok guys, I just started an Italeri Ford LTL9000 and did the frame wrong, it's skewed on one side. I  read that most Italeri frames are pretty much the same. Is this correct? Because I'd like to use the frame off a Freightliner FLC I will not build instead of dismantling this one and rebuilding it just as crooked as it is or (most likely...) even worse. Tell me what you think.


Challenger Hellcat HP number out...

Sooooo... This little Challenger puts out: a nice 707HP and 650 Lb-ft. Nuff said.


Is there going to be a follow up to the W900 and 389?

So this is only to start a little discussion on our old favorites being updated or just being dropped. What do you think? After seeing the Kenworth T680 and T880 with a new cab,  do you think the W900 series will be updated or just be dropped? Same thing for the Pete 388-389, will they inherit the same new cab from the 567 and 579 or just die? Can the industry still support the classic square nosed chromed clad classics? Let's talk! Heck, draw what you think they should look like!


Where did all the old Dayton style spoke wheels go?

They used to be all over the place some years ago. Now all we see are aluminum and steel disc type wheels.

What happened? Since they were cast, my guess is they were quite heavy, but there must have been some other reasons for their (almost) demise.

Were they trouble to align correctly? I remember seeing a lot of trucks with wobbly drive wheels back in the day... What's your insight on this?


Anybody up for a modern W900L?

Man, it seems like nobody out there is interested in producing this road icon! I'd buy ten of them right away if Moebius Italeri or RoG would get a kit out! (AMT-Round2 might get serious about this someday, who knows?) The possibilities for this kit would be like... Endless! Am I right or am I right! They even could produce the oh so popular T800 and also a T660 with the interchangeable parts. The same way they produced the Lonestar and the Prostar. Moebius and Kenworth W900=killer combination. Does anybody really need a business case for this one? Make it and they WILL come!
