KW Car Hauler Finished

Recommended Posts

Well, I finished this one up, today....I had quite a bit of fun with this one.....Using the snap KW W900 kit from Revell, I exercised all kinds of artistic license....I scratch built the bed, stretched the frame and used Italeri rims and tires for it....The kit wheels were just, totally unusable....Sometimes they work and other times they just don't....Hadn't really had a problem with them until this rig, for the most part, though....Anyway, I made a Texas bumper for it and added spare decals I had laying around from all sorts of other rigs to come up with this scheme.....And, for the life of me, I don't know what to put on the back of this thing, yet....Toying around with some ideas, but right now I got nothing....

Man! That is one fine lookin' hauler JT. I especially like they way you put the stripe decals to work, spot on.

As for the load.. Bet a short wheel-based, race tractor (or puller tractor) would fit perfectly on the back.

Looks really nice. I like how you used the stripes fro the Revell USA Peterbilt kit. Very cool. The truck looks much better with the bigger tires.

Thanks, Guys.....I'm glad you all like this one as much as I do.....I'm taking all your suggestions to heart....I still don't know, though....As the race rigs are a little hard to come by, I'm probably gonna do something a little different.....Can't see dropping too much dough on one of those rare kits....No Way....I'll find something, though....Got that hamster in the wheel running pretty fast, right now.... :D
