Thanks Tom. i did not know if the cab/hood really went together because the hood seems so much wider than the cab.

Thanks again guys, you have been a big help. I have been able to match just about everything up to instruction sheets, which will help a bunch when it comes to the bags of little parts.

Ok, here are the rest of the partial buildups. the first one is a KW, like the cabs and hoods. is this the W-925 like the Movin On kit?

The Green truck looks like an International Transtar F-4270?

A few more 359 Petes, a really nice Fire engine that will get cleaned up and put in the display case.

On the Dump beds, is the white one the Autocar?, and what is the orange one and mixer body?

Thanks again everyone.

The white dump body is from the Autocar kit, the red dump is from the IH paystar 5000 kit, the drum is from the paystar mixer.

3rd pic is KW W900 (i believe the 925 had the tortion bars)

4th pic is an International 4200

5th pic front left green Pete 359, right white Pete 359

back left KW.

All of the AMT Kenworth W925 kits were the same. Only the decals were different. Although later issues had the spring suspensions making them actually W923.

Looks like someone scratchbuilt an American-LaFrance Pioneer cab for the Ladder Chief. (Technically, it's a truck, not an engine. There's no pump for water.)

This one looks factory, but I sure cant tell you how hard or easy it was to achieve it. lol

I went through a HUGE box of parts. LOTS of bagged stuff. Not sure what all the engines are, and a few different hoods. Bag after bag of parts, a tray of chrome trees, trays of interiors, and just more stuff than I can wrap my head around....

Lusk, WY lol

Ok, I finally made it through the last of the truck boxes. Even with all the time I have spent going through things, its still only superficial.

A Volvo and MB, partial builts with no paint and what looks like all the parts.

th_100_6450_zps81ac7aab.jpg

th_100_6449_zpsd06a0b88.jpg

Two Aeromax, one old build falling apart and one barely started.

th_100_6451_zpsa55038e2.jpg

th_100_6454_zps0e240b4b.jpg

The Fords are both complete with the C600 having at least a spare cab. lol

th_100_6452_zps6b5683ca.jpg

th_100_6455_zpsefffd84b.jpg

The BJ and the Bear kit is a falling apart built up. But appears to be all there.

th_100_6473_zpscada99ea.jpg

The Movin On kits are in real nice shape, one looks complete and unbuilt, the other looks like its missing a few.

The rest are just crazy. I dont know whats worse, opening a box and finding that it matches, or finding that it doesnt, or finding parts with no instructions, or instructions that do not match whats in the box.

This Mack came with extras

th_100_6463_zpsb85d253c.jpg

While this one might not all be there...

th_100_6464_zps828f8508.jpg

...and this one has the chassis in one box while the rest is in another.

Ok, last of the pics. The trailers.

Looks like there is enough to build three tankers.

th_100_6475_zpsd9ba9a4d.jpg

A couple Reefer trailers

th_100_6476_zpsd23727c2.jpg

...and plenty of parts for dry goods, and doubles.

th_100_6477_zps96c1512f.jpg

th_100_6480_zps20f9c3ea.jpg

Along with a couple low boys, flat bed, and Cattle Pods !! I noticed somebody got creative with a cattle pod trailer and built on that would go on what looks like Louisville ford, and a pickup.

th_100_6478_zpsf1d7567f.jpg

th_100_6479_zps9b000fb0.jpg

So thanks for following along as I dug through this HUGE score !! I appreciate all the help in identifying things and will now figure out what I want to keep and what will move on.

:D

Sam,in this picture,the cab is the MPC Mack DM-600/800 but the hood belongs to the AMT "Junkyard Dog" R-685, Mack was not happy about the presentation of this kit,and dropped their licensing agreement with AMT over it! the hood /grille is for the MPC DM-800 kit,i could build one of those almost from memory! I can't help identify everything pictured,but I am familiar with all Mack kits produced.........................................Mark

Thanks Mark. I thought the cab went to the Junkyard Dog because it has dents in it like the hood does.

Hey Sam,

I might be interested in that Mack if you decide to get rid of it.

Sam,i looked back at the picture,and you are correct! I thought the "bulge" in front of the cab was the hood latch/offset for the DM-800,but it is indeed the R-Model cab from the JunkYard Dog! maybe i'll clean my glasses now! Lol!.....................Mark
