1964 Kenworth K100 with 1956 Great Dane trailer


Recommended Posts

I have finally finished this combo. The truck is an AMT K123 kit that has been heavily modified to be backdated to a 1964 model. The trailer is almost entirely scratch built.

Superb job all around there.   Pics 4 and 5 done in grayscale would really put it back in time. 

Thanks! You gave me an idea to make these look like old photographs that have been scanned into a computer.

Every time you finish a build I end up saying that it is my favorite one yet. This one is no exception. You are not only the KW king, but you are the trailer king as well. You have a talent for capturing the vintage look. I always enjoy your builds and I am looking forward to seeing your next project! Excellent build!

Impressive work, KJ! I really like the combo! Nice paint work and weathering - too, especially on a freezer. Open windows add nice touch!

I would only slightly shade the grill and change trailer gates locker rods.

By the way: oval marker light on trailer are Czech Truck Model sets too? How much sets of oval lights have you used?
