They used to be double framed but I've been shown that the frames are now deeper, and thicker. Typical road train spec would run a 600hp engine, 18 speed box, Rockwell 6 rod, also heavier front axle. Cheers Ben

Also this is based on a lonestar kit.

Nice one Ben, looks great so far,

What colours are you planning?

A little tip for you, check the exhaust out before committing to paint, the roof fowls a little with the exhaust pipe, and you may need to mod it a little

Supposed to be a cummins signature 600, but it's only a basic representation. Auslowe includes a cummins tapper cover in the transkit. Looks good enough to me. Auslowe also does a complete cummins signature 600. Cheers Ben

I plan to paint it red chassis, red and white cab with red and white pinstripe. Cheers for the tip for the exhaust. Ben

Looks like your off to a good start. Something different as well. We don't see many Australian spec vehicles on the forum.

I don't think the cab will fit the w900 bonnet from p&p resin. There is a difference in width between the amt t600 cab and this cab. Cheers Ben
