Does anyone know if this truck is in a 1/25th kit form? I saw a pic of a model but can't find anymore info on it.

There was never a kit for the Kenworth 953, however some folks have built it over the years. There was a modeler who during the early 1980's sold resin parts to convert the W900 into a 953, The cab is the same and he sold the hood, axles, transmission, wheels and tires. I don,t think you can buy them any longer but it should be reassuring to note that it has been done and could be done again.

I know all of this because I worked for Kenworth for 32 years and saw some great 953 and 953s 1/25 models during the time I was there.

Hope this helps

At one time I had lots of 953 pics because I wanted to build one. Unfortunately I don't have them any longer. If you do decide to build one I might be able to contact some friends you may have pictures and get you copies.
