    I've been working on  one for a couple days.I've built lots of the old amt,but this has got to be the worst one in terms of flash,and miss aligned molds. Just getting the differentials lined up was a massive chalange.I know they can be built nice and from looking at some build ups I notice the exhaust,intake and the rad give people issues.I think I'll need to mock up the stacks,with supports,intake pipes with air cleaner,and turbo and intake manifold all at one to get every thing lined up.I could see this kit discouraging a beginner so bad it would go in the trash

    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
