Kenworth Bullnose 1/25 Strato Models


Recommended Posts

A time ago a friend of mine Pavel Behensky aka Strato Models produced a limited series of Kenworth Bullnose transkit. The kit is no longer available but I started to build it just now. Also of the Strato Models production is the set of wheels, the steer and drive axles, the torsion bar suspension, the main and aux transmission, the 5th wheel  and a pair of sanders. I borrowed the Cummins engine from AMT´s K123 kit and modified the transmissions to create a married box. I added a few items in the cab like the bunk, partition walls, the dog house insulation and curtain.

The chassis consists of the scratch built rails, air tanks and Peterbilt kit cross members. I have no particular knowledge of the real truck so the frame is not correct, it is only generic.

I wanted some simple paint scheme on the cab. The notbook in the background shows my inspiration for the build. I even have the AMT´s low boy.

My favourite feature on the notebook picture is the sanders. I had to include them in my build. They are ready for instalation.
