  1. Ryan Mlynek. He can be reached on Facebook.
  2. I noticed that you rounded out the edges of the doors. This was a modification of the later Freightliner cabovers, post 1974. The drivers were complaining that the sharp edges of the earlier doors where a problem.
  3. Nice truck and trailer. And those things it's carrying are ok too.
  4. I uploaded those Ken Smith articles on the Dutch Model Club site years ago. They were all scanned in.jpg format and should have no problems downloading.. A Freightliner FLC brochure I have, which mirrors many photographs and information from the Testors Freightliner FLC kit confirms that it is indeed a mid 1980s Cummins NTC350 engine. When it comes to detailing engines, I always refer to brochures and repair manuals. The internet is full information. Every engine's set up is different based on the type of truck, the options, engine requirements, etc. And of course the final reference is an actual engine in the type of truck you are building. This is a photo of a R&C Resin Cummins L10 I am detail for a Ford Aeromax 106.
  5. The Freightliner wheels are Accuride.
  6. These are the Freightliner wheels. The Italeri Freightliner FLD120 kit has these. Similar, but different. .
  7. They look like Ford Aeromax wheels to me.
  8. Look forward to this project. I have suggested to Revell and Italeri to offer a series of construction models of a Paver, Cold Planer and Roller. Dickie Toys of Germany offered very good 1/25 toys that could be scale models of these machines.
  9. Wonderful. Looks like an early 1960s Brown reefer. Looks like you could put an undermount reefer unit on it to simulate an early intermodal reefer. BTW, no diesel fuel tank?
