A&N Model trucks will be doing a Kenworth w990


Recommended Posts

Interesting sleeper choice. That puts this as more of an oilfield/equipment hauler/vocational set up than an OTR truck. Nobody who's gonna be out for 2+ weeks at a time is specing a 990 with anything other than a 72" Aerodyne and most likely 84" Studio Sleeper. 52" sleeper is for someone who gets home every night or so (or get daily hotel rooms with their haul contract) and has the sleeper just in case they run out of hours on a well pad or something. A lot of the dry bulk sand haulers for the PA/WV/OH shale gas fields have these kind of trucks.

Should sell well. I’m still surprised the aftermarket is looking after us more than the mainstream. We should all be thankful for A&N for bringing us all current model trucks.

Resin & photo etch. They produce high quality parts. I’m so happy to see them come out with yet another modern truck.

It looks like they’re going to offer a complete truck, everything you see in the 3d renderings, from the tires on up, including the very detailed chassis.

But, I bet they’ll do what they did with the Argosy, and you can also just buy the basics - the hood, cab, interior, trim, and sleeper, and source the chassis, wheels, tires, and engine from an Italeri kit.

They’re not cheap, but A&N’s offerings dwarf all the mainstream kit manufacturers in detail and accuracy. Not to mention, modern subjects that are not available anywhere else.

I believe looking at A&Ns other products, you’ll be able to buy all the parts to make a complete truck. You maybe able to cheapen it by using an Italeri kit as a base kit.
