    i've actually e-mailed both revell and italeri about doing a W900L as i think a modern up todate truck is needed badly....ie Ice road truckers big fan base but all i got was, not a marketing something or another not until 2014 maybe,oh and thanks... me, we dont even have em down here, but something similar, but i would love to see a W900L...

    A 1:1 version would be awesome but guess we'll just settle on this ride for now............ way cool

    got one of these kits a few years ago paid a fortune for it from the states to australia the orange issue never even built it dont even know were it went. but i see there is some serious cutting going on here ,love the paint job on those rims...

    MMM i might be to old before i see a new kenworth kit PLEASE W900L
  6. matilda66 added a post in a topic Where I can find a wheel like this???   

    spyders were always the more common tyre ,rim combo here in Australia but seems as though the aluminum 10 hole alcoa is now the prefered type seen on our roads less weight etc but yes they are dangerous i had splitrims on the old land cruiser not anymore

    most AMT/ERTL mack kits came out with spyders and i think the road boss and old gmc kits did as well

    i once wanted all the wiring diagrams pluming etc for a superliner... MACK in brisbane where our Macks are built were more than helpfull. not sure if there still up there, rocklea i think is the suburb

    would these old girls be as wide as say a modern truck ? forgive me but where would one start referance wise dont see to many round here.. maybe Mr peterbilt Tim could pass on some measurements of a resin cab if he dont mind.... ,the truck i plan building is lets say a hot rod stretched frame rails, scratch maybe, a 377 sleeper on back those cool flares over the back wheels not to forget those big custom stacks finished off with a wild paint job the cab dos'nt seem to hard to build just need some basic measurements to get the ball rolling thanks again
