  1. Hey all Got some more work done on the frame. this view shows the drivers side battery box. this view shows the frame and rear wheels/tires. this view shows the drivers side battery box with the cover off. The wooden block is representing one of the (4) batteries that will be in here, the other sides box will house one of the air tanks. this view shows the truck partially assembled for pictures. The sleeper floor will be shortened to a 36" sleeper and a headache rack will be added. another view of the KW 900L heavy haul tractor. Ron G
  2. Hey all Small update, I've got the frame stretched and assembled. Took a couple of pictures while the glue dries. the axles are only there for pictures. view of the bottom of the frame. Ron G
  3. Hey guys Yeah I know another one...it's a disease...please I need help...lol😁 Ok now that thats over. I'm starting a build thread on a 1/16 scale Monogram Kenworth W900 Conventional kit. I plan on doing it as a tri-axle heavy haul, with custom made headache rack, custom made air lift axle, decals from Jerry at modeltruckin.com. I'm using the kit Caterpillar 3408 V8 engine, but I'm fully plumbing it with custom Cat oil and fuel filter decals. It's going to have aftermarket 385/65R 24.5 front floats, 385/55R 22.5 super singles for the lift axle and 12.00R 24.5 drive tires. I
  4. They have them for a 1/16 scale Kenworth W900? Ron G
  5. Hey all I think I might have found one from a guy on YouTube that had a extra one left over from his build. Ron G
  6. Hey guys Short update. this view shows the drivers side door mounted to the sleeper. this view shows the drivers side door opened. I still have to do the other side and add the trim lips, like the ones I did on the cab. Ron G
  7. Yeah, I kind realise that I'll probably have to go that route, but I fgured I would give it a try and see what comes up. There's a guy on Ebay that has a complete rolling chassis for sale, but he wants $160.00 plus shipping and tax! Thats more then I payed for the whole kit! Ron G
  8. Hey all I'm in dire need of a Monogram 1/16 scale Kenworth W900 Conventional passenger side frame rail. The one I just got is a short shot on the the two rear air bags. As you can see the bottom frame rail rear is totally messed up! It should look like the upper one in the photo (only for the other side). closer view of the problem.😭🤬🙏 praying for help. Disappointed Ron G
  9. Yeah tgere rc stuff is so so. I have there 1/24 scale RC Cat 336 excavator, it's all plastic gear drive, so so it was $99.95 #25001. The biggest thing is it's not 1/24 its more like 1/20:1. They actually came out with another one in 1/24 scale thats closer to 1/28:1 scale it's cheeper around $60.00 #25005. The trailer should be ok depending on what it costs. Ron G
  10. Look for Neurumberg toy fair 2020- part 4 diecast masters by cranes etc. tv couldn't find a actual link comes in about the 12.54 time point. Ron G
  11. The YouTube video doesn't show much, its more for the Diecast Masters 1/16 scale RC Freightliner Cascadia, and no it's not the Tamiya one. They also make a 1/16 scale RC Western Star dump truck, you csn find them at various places on the internet. Ron G
  12. They haven't released any pricing yet, probably will find out around the pre order time. When they let me know I'll post it here. If it's the same quality as their 1/50 scale trailer it should be realky sweet! Ron G
