This is a kit built in the 80s under the original release with the big stripe decals.  I think it was White with an orange chassis. The current version is in blue with sticker stripes. 

I rounded the chassis rail corners, opened up the steps under the battery boxes, repositioned the quarter fenders and mudflaps, altered the trailer hitch to lose the silly spigot from the middle, bit of BMF here and there, then painted it metallic silver with a rattle can. 

Looks ok and even better hitched to the van trailer.

Great looking Fleet! I like these kits! I spent a week in the hospital as a kid and my mom bought me this kit and the cabover snap Freightliner too, and I built them in the hospital.

Thanks everyone for your kind comments. I would love to have the cabover Freightliner and the conventional KW Aerodyne they did. These kits used to be pennies but they're so expensive now.
