  1. Not mine, pics from collected eBay listings, but would be great to hear this survives and can/will be reissued.
  2. Just wondering how do you transport your big rigs to and from. Wether it's to a show or to a meeting, just curious. Thanks and GOD Bless. 😇👍🏼
  3. This just caught my eye… https://www.megahobby.com/products/kenworth-w900-dump-truck-1-25-revell.html
  4. About 5 years ago I went to work for a company that makes plastic conduits for running underground fiber optics and power lines through. The conduit is placed on large steel reels during the manufacturing process. I saw these trucks and figured they would make an excellent subject matter. I picked myself up a Revell Kenworth W900 and an AMT Great Dane Flat Bed Extendable Trailer. I made the trailer so it would not extend and painted the semi the same color blue as the company. I used my wife's Cricut and some white decal paper for the company name on the side of the truck. The reels of conduit are what took me the longest to make. I tried making them from scratch out of styrene strips, but that failed as soon as I tried to wind some wire on them for the conduit. This all changed when I got a resin 3D printer. I designed and printed the reel flanges, reel staves, and even the conduit on the reels. Altogether the trailer and the 10 reels weigh a whopping 2.5 pounds. I found a file online for the load binders and with a little modification, 3D printed those as well. It took about 4.5 years to complete, but I finally got it done a couple of weeks ago.
  5. My two "American MuscleCar Transporters" are finally both done. I started these 16 years ago. Back then, I got he trailers and the KW T600 done. The Canepa body was painted and the engine assembled but nothing else. When I got a few other rigs and trailers done these last couple of years, I found my 2nd trailer needed a tractor. The Canepa build stalled when I got the idea to LED light it AFTER it was painted. I had the switches, blinker circuit and battery mounted into the sleeper but I just lost the motivation to knock out all the installed lights to add in LEDs. The Canepa body gave me more fitment issues than I remember with the T600. Fortunately I was warned and tackled them as they arose. Here they are for you viewing pleasure.
  6. Hi all, Finally got around to posting this one. It's certainly a great time to finish those projects. They only made around 200 of these trucks in 1976, and I wanted to capture the history along with challenge myself doing a simple snap kit. Kit: Revell Kenworth W-900 Aerodyne (85-1507) Represents: 1976 Kenworth VIT 200 Bicentennial Paints: Tamiya White (TS-26), Tamiya Gold (TS-21) and Tamiya Blue (TS-15) for interior Extras: AMT tires, rims and quarter fenders Revell Germany W900 dashboard (it has more details and CB) Double Take Replicas resin W900 visor (the only one I found to fit this kit) ModelTruckin' Bicentennial decals Thanks for looking! Steve
  7. I started this Revell of Germany Kenworth W900 build back on 1 Dec 10, and after many trials & tribulations it languished on the Shelf of Shame until today! It's finally finished. The cab, hood, & sleeper were painted & striped by Jim Gavin (drinkone2), the "Landstar Ranger" decals are from the KFS US Cab Artwork Set #1, blue Alcoa wheel decals are from Scale Truck Studios, and the air deflector is from the Revell of Germany Peterbilt 359 kit. Is it exactly how I envisioned it? No, but sometimes you just have to say enough is enough, and get the job done. I was going to try to finish it on its 10-year anniversary, but I got it done early. Thanks for looking.
  8. Hi all, I am making my first attempt at sharing pics of one of my builds. It was done quite awhile ago. I hope you guys like it.
  9. Hi Guys & Gals, last week I shared some pics of a couple of rigs my grandad built for my uncle in the Seventies. My uncle has given them to me, and I’m trying to restore the ‘Movin’ On’ Kenny to give back to him. As you may have seen, paint was limited to the cab & hood and the rest had been pretty haphazardly ‘assembled’. Well I started the process this weekend, degreaser bath, disassembly and a little re-assembly. It would of course be easier to buy a Round 2 reissue, but it’s been around for so long, I want to try and save it. Thanks for the advice & tips in advance!
  10. Movin On Kenworth Hello dear colleagues ! Today I want to introduce my version of the Movin On Truck. In the 1970s, the US series "Movin On" was on television, and the series was about a trucker who had some adventures with his truck on the road, starring Tom Atkins. I painted my Kenworth Colobrigreen Metallic, then applied the decals and sealed with acrylic gloss clearcoat. I have also made a few modifications. At the front of the bumper the towing eye was equipped with the bolt, the mudguards are with mudflaps from a piece of bicycle hose, on the right side of the frame I have a small storage box with kick attached, as well as a handle on the sleeping cabin. On the frame at the holder of the leads for the Trailor are a few Riffelsteel. I hope you like it and I look forward to your comments. Greetings from Jan
  11. Not sure if this has been already posted, but just saw this: Revell Kenworth K-100 Aerodyne - due in 2017 http://www.rocketfin.com/heavy_truck_models.cfm
  12. I was just wondering if it would build into a decent truck being a snap kit!
  13. I am starting another one. It has been a while since my 1/16th scale Kenworth W900 (seen here) Anyways it is time to build a replica of the other truck. I am dong a video series for this as well only this time I am going to show way more of my techniques and I explain a little bit how this is going to go in this video HERE. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k5x_DVDsqEo This is what I hope it will look like when it is done.

  14. So in my never ending quest to clear up the "Shelf of Shame", I have pulled my 1975 Kenworth K100 Oneida Freight out of moth-balls & onto the work bench. Why I do this when it's cold & I cannot use spray paint, I have no idea. Anyway, this is what I am going for: I started with the AMT Kenworth K123 kit back on 24 JAN 12, and this is where I am right now. I wanted to show you exactly how it looks with the dust & broken parts & all (ok, I did remove a dead bug from being wedged between the passenger seat & the doghouse). Frame: Engine (swapping out the Cummins NTA370 for a Caterpillar 3408; larger radiator from AMT K100 Aerodyne kit): Interior: Cab (replacing the narrow grill from the kit with the grill from the AMT K100 Aerodyne): And that's where we stand. More updates soon, I hope.
  15. Hi all, This completed KW represents Will Chandler's 1970 K-123 from the "In Tandem" pilot. Not a whole lot of references/resources available since it only had a brief cameo in the beginning of the movie. The build includes 5 hole budds, modified fuel tanks (no steps / centered fill fuel cap), single exhaust, ugly roof A/C and "California Lines" decals from the Movin' On decal set. Steve
  16. This Kenny was finally finished up in Sept 2015 – features an extended chassis, Revell double sleeper, Modeltruckin' "Yosemite" decals. Paint theme completed with Dupli-color Cordova (root beer) Brown.
  17. i just found this kenworth w900 at hobby lobby last Friday, and i brought it for $3.23 that is so cheap looks complete to me but when i finished notice the have missing 3 wheels and the 2 spacer and 2 inner wheels, and the decals ( which doesn't matter if i find them), i'm not an expert making this type of trucks because is the first one, so what do you think. the questions is where i can find those wheels and it components?
  18. My last work, a K-123 from the AMT kit. The guy who ordered it to me wanted this truck, white and rusty. So I made it at my sauce This kit isn't easy to assemble, no numbers on sprues, a lot of parts don't fit well... I don't like this kit but I had pleasure to make the weathered body and the details. Well, time to show some pictures ! Photos of the interior soon ! Leave your comments
  19. So it's been awhile since I've posted anything... Here's a kenworth snapper I've been working on.. Cut the aerodyne off and put a 36" sleeper on it. Also building a custom spreadaxle fruehauf to pull behind it. The trailer has working vent doors on front and rear. Just like all the spud trailers do. It also has a custom drop ICC bumper on it. Thanks for looking!
  20. All, This is Bill Drennen. I want to post this message to everyone because I'm totally against anyone who produces unauthorized copies of my products or other’s products and tries to profit from copyright infringements. This eBay seller below has posted and sold "black resin" Kenworth W900L hoods and cab knock-offs of my copyrighted W900L on eBay without my consent. I asked him nicely to remove his auctions, but he did not. He left me no choice but to turn him in to eBay as well as filed a Copyright Infringement charge against him. I ask of you to please do not promote this sort of behavior by purchasing the counterfeit products and if you suspect someone of this behavior, please contact the modeler who produced the originals to verify first before you make your purchase. I, as well as others on this website have put long hard hours into making our products and have taken the funding cost to pay royalties and casters to produce our products in order to make them available to you legally. To have individuals such as this person taking advantage of our work for greed of profit is detestable. If you want to check his auctions out the numbers are listed below. And, if you know who he is, or who made these casting; I certianly want to know to take further action against those individuals producing counterfeits of my product. You can send me a private email anytime. Bill Drennen Bill Drennen Truck Models eBay Item numbers 281406857809 281406867113 271570768238 eBay ID badtxz
  21. Hey guys so I haven't been building much lately with work and the new house and what not its been crazy.. But for my birthday I got a kw w900a 1/16 kit. So I started building a little bit here and there at night. And I felt guilty for not posting progress. Here is where I am with her now. No stretch or anything to fancy just a nice paint job and a classic look. I'll update it again when I have more... I'm working on it. Let me know what ya think. Thanks!
  22. Hi Everyone, Last September I took a brief vacation to British Columbia and discovered some nice old trucks along the way, so took some photos / video and made up a youtube video of my finds. Mostly construction / excavation dump trucks, but also spotted an Autocar ! Haven't gotten around to building any trucks lately, but hope to get to a few this year. Hope you enjoy and maybe a little inspiration for a future build, Felix
