Hey guys, last night I ordered the revell kenworth w900. It was only $21 so I don't know how good it will be. Anyone here put this one together? Thanks in advance.

The cab and sleeper are one unit. Pretty much like the Pete kit. That is the one I am working on now.

The cab & sleeper are a single unit. The kit lacks some details like brakes & a visor, but it does build out nicely.

The Pete 359 and W900 kits are engineered exactly the same. The only difference is the shape of the body. If you liked the Pete, you'll get along just fine with the W900... Here's another one, just to inspire...

This one's built box stock except for the company logo and lettering. Paint is Duplicolor Royal Blue.

I love these kits, I have several more in various stages of construction, both Pete and KW...
