    Looks like she's ready for work. Great job on it, looks like a 1:1 sitting there in your garage.

    That is awesome, I love it. Great to know the race car hauler can be turned into something that cool.

    Wow, what a fantastic day cab! Love what you did with the conversion and the paint matches it beautifully. Nice work!

    Looks great, just like the box art! Great model, definitely look forward to buying a couple more of them at re-issue time.

    I think you're right. Might stick it on the 'ol Xmas list. You never know, maybe the wife might get it for me. Otherwise I'll have to stick with the cheaper AMT trucks I think. lol

    Thanks guys, it was fun, yet challenging build.

    The K100 should be great since the AMT Kenworth COE is out of production. Hopefully they won't price the thing up into the stratosphere...which Revell tend to do with their non snap truck kits.

    I built the General years and years ago (in the '90s) and as far as I can remember it was a pretty good kit to build.

    AMT Peterbilt 359 California Hauler
    Can anyone tell me what engine comes in the kit below? The box says "giant diesel engine." I know it's a V8, any more details on it would be great. The kit doesn't have any brand decals to put on it, so I can't tell if it's a CAT, Cummins or Detroit.
    Thanks!

    AMT White Freightliner COE Single Drive
    This is an original AMT 1973 issue White Freightliner SD. The chassis was warped when I got it, the 43 year old tires were rock hard and most of the pieces had come off their sprues, but after much patience and test fit after test fit I think it came out pretty good.
    Everything here is as it came from AMT (I didn't replace or customize anything). Paint is from Testors with a couple coats of clear, and there is some some BMF attached.
    It was a great old kit to build, definitely look forward to getting my hands on another couple of these when they are re-released soon. There was really no major issues worth mentioning, just spend plenty of time test fitting and you'll do ok.
    Hope you all like it...
