  1. I'm glad to see those wheels used. I have the same combo.Now I know it will work.
  2. I would consider a freightliner kit for the basic chassis. Get one of ones with single drive axle
  3. I'd like to add a few tid bits.The autocars come with turbo parts ,so by kit bashing the turbo with the non turbo intake manifold you would have a 335.I like horsepower so I call the nta370 an nta 420.Those nta's came in 370 up to 420 in 10 horsepower increments .You can turn the cruiseliners 300 into a 315 hp 300+ by painting it a redish copper colour.For a period of time Euclid owned westernstar.During that era engines were Euclid green.
  4. it will be light blue plastic.they also say 903 on the covers.the only kit was an international 4200
  5. I think the difference in height is because a western rl700 has straight frame rails.later western the fenders were lowered jus t like a valueliner r600.The ribs on the fenders are to do with what year truck.I don't have the years off hand.last picture is a eastern r700.The original pictures in this topic is interesting because its an western r700 built to eastern specs
  6. just to add a little something,you could of had a narrow nose extended cowl also
  7. There are a couple options available. I myself would start with an amt because correct splendor interior,bumper ,battery box,rims,and bunk.An extra battery box would need to be sourced for the passenger side.In my opinion the snap aerodyne tanks would be best.The doors would have to be updated with paddle type door handles like the revel kits Revell would be the best choice for the base if building the restored version because of the battery boxes are the newer style.A revel interior is a newer double bunk vit interior,so the amt should be swaped as well as the small bunk. I guess a third option would be a revel of Germany long nose kit ,swap an amt or revel standard hood and cut down the bunk Some pictures of the truck clearly show gold emblems that were avalible in 73 for kw's 50th anniversary The engine is pure speculation because no photos of the originals are around.many say cat because snowman wore a cat hat Torsion bar suspension is available from the aftermarket modeltruckin has the decals
