You just have a way with a Kenworth! That is one excellent build! The paint scheme and the spokes really make this one stand out! I'd like to see all of your KW's together in a photo some time, if you can get them all to fit in one photo.😀

Another beautiful rig build... I can just see this one out over the road with a 53' Great Dane trailer; still running rolling after all these years...Beautiful....

I don't know how you guys crack out builds this quickly. Especially builds as nice as this one.

Wow, great build. Looks awesome. You really moved through that build, I can't believe you got it done in 1 month. My tractor is 99% and my trailer is not even close.

Excellent work as usual, KJ. I followed along in the build thread, and I do have one question out of curiosity. Why start with the K100 Aerodyne instead of the already flat top K123?

Thanks! There were a few reasons I went with the Aerodyne. The truck that I was replicating had an 8V92 engine, 8-bag air ride suspension, wider front grille, paddle style door handles, and oil dipstick door on the passenger's side. It was going to be a lot of work regardless of what kit I started with, but the Aerodyne meant that I had to source fewer parts from other kits.

Gorgeous build!

I immediately noticed how realistic the windshield wipers looked, so I went back to your in-progress thread to get more info. Sure enough, they are scratch-built (not stock kit item). How did you make them?  Details like this make or break the model's realism. Good job!

Thank you. I made those out of .030" square styrene rod. They are quite simple to make, but they help improve the look of the model over the molded in wipers.

Thanks for the info KJ. Like you said, something simple to make from scratch, but makes a huge visual difference.
