Well I decieded that if I was gonna build a more modern Kenworth I have to make some changes right off the bat, so in this installment I was able to modifiy (not scratch build) the cab and sleeper. The resin cab i bought fell short of being Kenworth correct so follow along as I make some corrections......enjoy

this is the resin cab as it came....the windows are wrong and the cab hieght is also wrong so we'll fix that now....

here the window has been corrected , I removed the post in the window and I also reshaped it i also added 5 scale inches to the bottom of the cab. Not quit done yet but its better

cabsleepermods002.jpg

the front window had a seperator in the middle also so i removed it , here I have the sleeper that came with the kit ready to be modified

This section had to be cut out because the more modern sleepers are intergrated onto the cab.....

Ok heres my first official post in almost a year (i think) anyway let me see if i can remember how this goes. I wanted to work on something easy to get me inspired again (that failed misserably) so i started on the interior. I was gonna do it basic and simple (that never seems to happen for me) but i ended up putting woodgrain in it. here are a few pics of the start of things..... I hope you enjoy. B)

heres some of the materials i used.
