OK, as an employee of Kenworth, you made me kring when I read "cuttin up a KW", but after looking @ your pics I can say you are doing a great job. I also am a fan of the grill. Can you get any more of the verticle bars? I only ask since it is a popular option to get an extra 4 bars, to in between those.

Keep up the good work and keep us posted.

Mike

where did you get the stallion for the hood ornament..??

I bought it from STS, but I believe it's an Auslowe item.

As to the grille bars, the photoetch set I bought only comes with the standard 3 bars.

I'm pretty sure that KW grille set is made by Czech Model. They can be purchased though ModellTruck in Germany. They also make a grille kit to upgrade the GMC Astro and several others.

I thought I saw it before. It looks great! Ray, if you have that photo etch kit, your KW is going to be a jewel! photo etch goes a long way for detailing. I just went on the site with this link. Have you seen the photo etch for the Italeri Peterbilt 378? Man! Got to get me one of those kits!

Are there any other places that sell parts for the 1/16 Rigs other than GardenTrucking and the Wedico stuff? I would like to find some of these nice PE parts for the bigger rigs as well.

Great work on classic. I've also this PE parts for KW and it is awesome. The guys from CTM will "rework" of this KW w900 parts! What I know now the hot new is PE kit for DAF N-series (italeri Cattleman). I will talk with them 30.11.2013 on exhibition in Bratislava. And I would ask them about news. PE parts you can buy also in www.car-model-kit.cz Pavel.
