  1. Sometimes I could condemn myself for succumbing to the charm of American big rigs from the 60s to 80s. It's so difficult to work your way through and understand the modifications of the different types. But since this forum were able to help me a lot when it came about the Freightliner COE, I hope that at least one of you can answer my question about the Kenworth W900. It revolves around the width of the hood or grill. Am I right when I deduce from the photos I have available that there were a total of three different dimensions within the W900, W900A and W900B series between 1961 and 1990? A narrow nose, the typical wide grill of the late series and a size that stood between the two? At least until around 1975/76? It would be great if someone could give me a tip! Thank you in advance!

    I’m sure that this will vary some depending on what year model you’re wanting to replicate. 


    This is a great support, thank you very much for sharing your knowledge with me. In principle, with the two drawings you confirm what I have been able to determine so far. Obviously I was too clumsy to find it myself on Fotki. Well ...

  3. Can someone briefly list the BBC cab dimensions for the K100 Cabovers? So far I have determined: 50", 63", 73", 86", 90", 108", 110", 112". Can anybody confirm this? Or supplement? In particular the jump from 90 to 108 seems very big to me, was there another size in between?

    I thank you for your effort,
    best regards,

  4. Hi Guys,

    I am happy to present you my first photos today. On my 1/72 scale, I am forced to build a lot by myself, as modeling kits are more the exception than the norm.

    All models are in different stages of construction, because I'm trying to build several at the same time. In this way for example I can get over drying times on one model by continuing to work on another.

    And here are:

    1. Marmon HDT 86


    2. Kenworth K 100


    3. Mack Superliner


    4. Freightliner FLT


    5. Freightliner FLC 120


    At the moment I am looking for a solution to create different rims and wheels. Difficult...

    I hope you will recognize the originals in my work. But don't forget, there is still a lot to do!
