I hope the final stretch is nearing...the cab is almost completed...new photo-etch grille is on the way...and final mounting should be this weekend....completed pictures will be posted soon...

Thank you to everyone who followed and commented on this build. Have a great Summer......Kurt

hey kurt thats a really nice build alot of detail. i like the pennsy inspection sticker aswell as the weight class and the ifta stickers. where did you get those? i live in the keystone too. and would'nt mind having a set of those. if you're making them i have some general parts to trade.

Those are actually thin plastic disks made to look like rubber...with holes punched in them to mount the horns. The horns are aluminum from KFS.

All,

I am calling this one 99.9% completed. Other than the new grille coming, and hood hinge pins...finally...

What a kit this turned out to be...with all of it obsticles and challenges...This was a monumental task for me just to finish it personally...

Thank you to everyone who followed this build and all the great feedback....until next time...Happy modeling, Kurt
