Kenworth VIT200

Post by checkmate on Thu 14 Apr 2011, 11:26 am

Here's a pic of my VIT200, I rushed to have finished for the NSW NNL Titles. (Managed to score a second place in Truck Bobtail!) There's a few things that could be a whole lot better, but I rushed it a bit to get it done in time. It's the AMT/ERTL kit, the chassis has been shortened, kit mudflaps replaced, other mudflaps added, tank steps replaced, changed the bumper and added some aerials. Pretty stock really, decals from the states. Still learning to build trucks and I've got a lot to learn! Laughing

That's a great looking KW - Nice and clean! The new details really help it. What gold did you use on chassis?

Nice work Dude, the only thing I can pick wrong is the steering wheel is on the wrong side! Haha. Great job with the decals too.

Wow if that's a rushed job, I'd love to see a model where you have had more build time? It looks magnificent Rob - a credit to your skills and tenacity. Well done!

Magnifico
