Not sure if this will get the pics in,,but its AMT Kenworth 123 Cabover,,lets see if it loads pics,,,,ok it worked,,cool. Anyways,,now that our state has been shut down I ,,got back to building ect. This kit had alot of issues as far as fit + fitment, the hinge for tilt cab was really weak,,so I just made it a lift off style. and some other stuff,,,but overall it worked out ok. I used Testors spraycan enamel,,and valspar hardware paint for chassis,,hand painted everything else,,and since this is the 1st big rig Ive ever built,,I mostly do cars+bikes,,it was a neat experience to build a big rig. Keep on Truckin!
Hello all I'd like to start by saying these trucks are very challenging, I am hoping by the time I have built 6 of either one I will be completely satisfied with them. As for moluminum the Tulsa winch is amazing, very well done, the chain binders are excellent, I wish I had thought to modify them prior to installing them, I believe if you could make these out of metal there would be some advantages, I used 8.5 links per inch chain which I am happy with, but the binders didn't quite bite well enough and I got to thinking if these were metal I would have been able to adjust the hooks and the binder would remain reusable, thinking that the g-scale community would probably beat your doors down, just a thought. I am posting these trucks here because I can think of no better way to thank the members of this site for the help, every issue, stumble, hurdle you guys just had the answers, I almost wish you had been here to remind me to read and understand all steps of the instructions, to stopping me from being blinded by the step/decal debacle on the Kenworth to sending both cabs off to clear coat without painting the windshield gaskets, hind site I suppose, thank you a million thank yous. I do apologize for the pictures, my little buddy, painter, photographer went on vacation just prior to the completion of the Kenworth and has of yet to see the Peterbilt. As for Jim his sacrifice, dedication and support for our family is unprecedented, I can think of no better husband, father, grandfather, father in law or friend. Thank you all for pulling me through this.
