White Freightliner day cab SD


Recommended Posts

Modifying the AMT kit  to resemble a  older version. Will have the lower cab, older foot strap instead of foot box, re arched fenders and older WF grill emblem as in photo. Going for a fleet truck, probably CME, California Motor Express

Finding more reference photos, headlight location looks like it will not be a problem for the era build. This photo shows the lower windshield wiper location, the older WF oval  emblem and square vent on upper right side of grill. Added a few rivets.  Colors will be black and white cab, black frame and orange wheels as shown in 1/87 scale athearn CME offering.
