Kenworth T600 aerodyne (Revell)

Recommended Posts

Realized that i have forgot to ad the airhose between the airfilter and turbo so i have to fix that.
If i had followed the manual the grabhandles next to the doors should have been mounted above it but on all pic´s of real ones they are next to the door as i mounted them.
For anyone that builds one of this from Revell, to make sure the exhaust pipe from under the cab to the stack lines up do not follow the manual.
Take the exhaust elbow and look at what angle it should be in, the glue it in that position.
Then put down that part first behind the sideskirt and lift up and twist the stack, there is just enough room to be able to move it like that.
However it will not line up with the rest of the exhaust system under the cab but the exhaust did not fit good anywhere else either so i left it, no one is going to see it anyways.

Nice truck. I wish Revell would release this one and the flat top again.

Looks great, Man... I've always wanted to build one of these.... Glad to see one built up, too.... These don't ever seem to get built... I'm really liking it...

I think i know why they never get built to.
Step 1 in the manual is to cut the frame in half.
After that it just goes downhill with parts that dont fit and instructions that are wrong and/or unclear and have to look at a pic of a real truck to find out how it is supposed to be.

I have a thread on this truck in the workbench if you are interested in some of the problems i ran in to.
Only part that was painless to build was the rearend as it is almost the same as any of the other Kenworth trucks revell has.

Where did you get the chrome half fenders? I am doing a Freightliner Heavy Haul and it could really use a pair. Nice rig by the way.

The fenders comes with the kit.
The same fenders are in Revell,s kenworth K100 and K100 aerodyne as the rear end on this is from a K100 kit
