      The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well.  k den

I used to drive this rig. I would like to build a kit. Any links to something like this would be appreciated.

Trailer and pipe layer also.

In a way, itll take a kit or 2, a resin conversion and a lot of modifications.

GW trucks and Plaskit have the T800 hood conversion. The sleeper would have to be modified from the T600 kit. I can't tell if that's a straight cowl or a curved cowl. GW trucks has the straight cowl version and Plaskit has the curved cowl version. The curved cowl would use the T600 kit a straight cowl would use a AMT KW conventional. The trailer would have to be modified from the soon to be reissued lowboy kit and the pipe layer would take a lot of work. Best bet would be to start with the AMT bulldozer and go from there.

The wide floats are available from several aftermarket sources. Bullbar would most likely need to be scratch built or heavily modified from a kit. The Revell T900 Australia would be a good starting point. Hope this helps.

Is that a Canadian rig?

I couldn't remember if GW trucks had cabs. I thought P&P pulled his T800?

I made P&P pull my T800 conversion kit and all my products from him selling them. If you need a T800 cab conversion I have them. Send me a PM.
