Hello everybody, this is my first ever semi truck, i got this kit a couple months ago after some of you all recommended it and then put it to the side after a couple of failed painting attempts so i brought the kit back out last week and got the body painted finally and then got everything else painted and put together, I really enjoyed building the kit and can't wait to do another semi, its box stock and painted with duplicolor blue metallic, all comments and criticism welcome.

Cole, that is a nice looking KW aerodyne conventional :) On a side note, does anyone make the standard KW visor for this kit? Not the big bow tie visor, but the stock KW visor?

Rich, the only visor that I know of that fits this cab is made be Gary Wallace of GW Trucks. It's actually for a W900B, so it's a little different.

Rich, I had an old AMT scrap visor laying around. I took some small scrap pcs and just glued them flat onto the ends. I then used a little bit of rotary file/Dremel finesse and reshaped the corners to fit the cab. Not a lot of work. End results were pretty good in my opinion. The cool thing is the center still fits the cab with the angles. Here it is:

JIm, do you have a link for GW Trucks? I tried doing a search and all I got was a link for 1:1 scale parts :blink:

Hi Barry, That visor and truck looks great, unfortunately for me, my spare parts went by the wayside 35 years ago :unsure:
