White western star

Recommended Posts

As with the other AMT kits in the White/Autocar/Western Star/Diamond Reo line - the cab fit/hood fit is tricky. I like the temporarily install the hood without the radiator in place - and align the cab - gluing it in place, then installing the radiator. If you follow the instructions and install the cab first, you'll fight with the fit and hingles. It's easier to adjust the cab than the hood.

Well got a little more done tonight on the star, made up my own floatation wheels. Using the bill signs rubber. Rear wheels are amt chevy Titan spoked painted flat black with chrome centre caps and silver trim ring. Used my new Dremel to trim the hood up were I made the dual breathers. The picture with the new square headlights are just sitting there. I find it gives it a completely different look!!
