    in your case the front (shutters) ,sides,top and bottom tanks would be silver or alum. color.The fins on the back side would be black.Kenworth used a lot of fiberglass including the  fan shroud.These were unpainted,some brochures show a greenish almost Detroit diesel color,but I think a tannish cured fiberglass color would be better.

    As for the air dryer , Plaskit from Quebec sells them.
    I'm enjoying your pictures and the colour and details are great

    Front hubs chassis colour and for the rearI'd go white spokes and rims myself with a grey spacer ring because the front rim is white.A little detail work on the bolts and lugs ,good to go.Seeing the chassis is blackk .black spokes would also work well,again a little detailing goes a long way

    I'll give a monthly update with out photos at this time,maybe in a few days I'll have a photo.I have sanded,smoothed,filled sink marks,removed ejector marks and filled all holes in the frame rails.Also modified and fitted the t600 front and rear cross members to the frame.The front springs only had the outside half of the shackles so I added the missing halves.Going to make some hood hinges next so I can get the hood on so I can get an ertl 4300 steering axle in proper location in relation to front fenders.Getting a little done.

    tamiya camel yellow is real close.primer and then a thick engine paint might hide too much detail for your liking.not sure how picky you are
  13. mistermodel added a post in a topic GMC Astro   

    I have a theory on that.AMT built the chevy titan  first and the grill sticks out way too much,so the cab had to be raised to make up for that so it would tilt.The gmc astro uses the same bits so it has the same issues.I raised the bumper on my astro because the grill is flush,but couldn't really  do that on my titan.I have another titan in stock,when I get to it I'll flush mount the grill

    late model KW W900L
    Messing around with updating anT600 into a curved cowl,aerocab,studio sleeper w900
    Rear cab wall cut out.Sleeper is lengthened and has height added .Used a second sleeper for the length and the area below the front windows.Side window panel is from styrene sheet to get the height
    Cab raised
    I thought I'd get the sleeper roughed in first, then modify the cab roof to fit
    No measurements of real ones just eye ball engineering .I just couldn't get the right look from using just one sleeper,needed sections of a second one.
    Still lots of work,finish both roofs,floor pans, interior, then the largest thing.. the hood.
    Probably will go on a snap chassis
