Nice work on this one, too....This KW is probably the better of the two, though....Kit wise, that is....The stripes look good.....And that headache rack is pretty good, as well....Great job, Mike....

Thanks guys... I've wanted to do one for quite some time (I've had the truck-em up graphics poster hanging in my shop for years).

Instead of decals, I used the Pactra trim tape for all the stripes, love that stuff! The headache rack was actually to hide were my stripes didn't quite line-up on the back of the sleeper (lol)

Excellent build!!! I built one and found those gold stripes are a B&*%$# to work with, It took a while but I got`er done!!!

This one belongs to a friend of ours.

Thanks Bob.

John, yours came out VERY nice...you're right about those gold stipes (best part, I ran out of the thin one before I was done and had to cut about 2' of a wider one...THAT was lots of fun :wacko: )

Sweet looking W900s, guys. I hope to add one of these to my collection soon. I've heard that the interiors were blue vinyl; is that true?

Check this site: morestuff4less.com/stories/2004/03/06/1976Kenworth,html

or search 1976 Kenworth and it should pop up near the top of the list.

The blogger posted about a dozen, very clear and detailed shots, several of them giving a good look at the interior.

The post was so good, it provided me all the research I needed.

Nice work.One of my favorite trucks and definitely a huge influence on truck history.I built one myself using modeltruckin decals.

Jim,here is a couple interior pics.Some modellers licence has to be applied to kind of make the kit design work

Hey Mike, great build!  How did I miss this post?   I know it's an old post but this is one of  my favorites.  I just built one just like yours.

     Mike,

            Real sweet looking V.I.T. you have there. They are one of my favorite trucks, especially the C.O.E. .

 

 

     Be Well
