And NOW here's the finished unit . All thats left is to fit a bullbar and the fleet number , i've been lucky enough to go through the official TNT fleet number list and she will be known as KT 187.




Here she is hooked up to her first trailer ready to roll.



This project has been both a pain and fun .

G,day torry , not bad for a box of parts . I was always going to do one as when i was hooking up a freezer van at greenacre depot one night it was beside my trailer . I asked the guy about it and he said it was on trial , i loved the look of it and thought i'll build a model of her but never got around to it . Then all these years later some guy on ebay in south oz had it as parts so i went after it and won , and the rebuild began .
