Check with The Model Maker Shop. He has them listed in the "Additional Parts" section. They're made by Czech Truck Modell.

I'm not familiar with any from the Model Maker Shop? Harald Weber in Germany made a very nice, very complete set specifically for the AMT White Freightliner kits. It is very advanced and requires soldering on the grill, side steps and some other items. I have pics of the photo etch frets on my Fotki site.

I have Harald Weber's set. For a few extra dollars, he did the soldering for me. Here's the grille from that set.

The other set mentioned above by Czech truck Modell is very nice and has A LOT of goodies, including 2 grilles. One is like this one, and the other is the later 2 bar grille introduced in the mid-70s. If you have more than one Freightliner kit, you'll want more of this set after you get the first one.

In fact the etch is developed and produced in the Czech Republic by a friend of ours Jan Rosecky. His stuff is really good and accurate. He has etch for the Lonestar/Prostar as well.

Check out his website. Scroll a bit and you will find English language.

Hi. I' ve also this PE parts. It is awesome. But I bought it direct from CTM. I can tell that the souls of this company are Karel (specialist for U.S. trucks) and Jan (specialist for Euro Trucks).

I used PE from them on my GMC Astro 95 (conversion of chevy titan). You can see it in gallery. I'll planned also GMC but with big grille, this is also from them.

I've also White freightliner parts, W900 parts, Lonestar parts, such as accesories parts. New are PE parts for Iveco Stralis (maybe the best work from guys) and of course new Prostar. Such as preparing of some new parts for W900....
