BRBO 2020 - Kenworth COE Aerodyne with Auto Transport


Recommended Posts

Well, I actually finished this. The first BRBO I've actually been able to finish, despite having signed up to a few!

 

So this is Revell's "Trucks Of The World" Kenworth Aerodyne kit, circa 1982, along with a reissue of the Revell Auto Transport trailer.

I was pretty impressed with the build quality of the Revell truck, and wish AMT could offer a kit that went together as nicely as this one. No flash, clear instructions, lots of detail. 

My only problem was with the chrome trees. The chrome was coming off in large flakes. Not sure if it was cheap chrome or just the fact that this kit is over 30 years old.

Painted in Tamiya TS23 Light Blue and TS26 Pure White.

I made the decals using a logo made by Shambles.

Pretty much stock build, but added some bigger stacks using some aluminum pipe I had laying around.

 

I see some places to improve, but overall I'm pretty happy. :)

Yeah... This is a good looking truck.... I like the color combo, and the overall build is excellent... I've tried to modify this trailer to give it more length, and such, but it always seems to look better box stock... Yours is no exception... Outstanding build...
