Yeh,it will be built the way it is supposed to be.
The person I bought it off had started to assemble the engine and painted it red and the chassis black.
From what I can tell the chassis should be green and the 370 Cummins a bluey/green colour but that is all that has been done.
Once I make sure of these things I will correct it.

Geez dave , ya make it sound like i'm a member of the plastic mafia !
The cummins motor should be painted beige , humbrol number 7 in the little tin . Kenworth chassis are usually red or black unless ordered a different colour . If you google the movin on truck there's plenty of reference material for you to study . If you want the exact truck it had a double sleeper .
Mainly just enjoy building the model that can never be reissued mate it's a great kit and looks a million dollars when finished .

Which truck ya building, pilot or TV series cause I got some bad news for ya. This kit is not correct for either. Pilot - 1 x exhaust & air cleaner, small sleeper. TV series - 2 x exhaust & air cleaners, large sleeper & frame extended 2 inches. Frame should be green. Best paint match -Testors Mystic Emerald. This is on my to do list. You may find this link of use http://www.modelcarsmag.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=47867&hl=%2Bmovin+%2Bon Look forward to seeing it complete. This show & BJ & the Bear were my 2 favorite truckin shows as a kid.

I'll build this one with the sleeper that come with it,I noticed it was different but I wont worry about it.
Yahshu thank's for the head's up on the colour.
I paid $43.99 for the model and I think it will be a fun build.
I have built the chassis now so that mean's I only have 6 build's going at once.

A model that can never be reissued? that's a strong statement.

Anything is possible, it's just a matter of money.

It would be great to see the W model re-issued, maybe they're leaving the best till last?

Hey Scummy, So you've got more than your share Shocked

And I bet you'd be too damn miserable to ever want to share anything with any other modeller in there time of need

Ya' know it's guys like you who only ever consider themselves all the time, that makes it so damn hard for anybody else to enjoy the hobby

Kev , it's like when i'm at work drivin my western star truck around town and you stop in traffic and there's a car comin out of the side street , so you stop short and wave them out . Because your only going to block the side street when you stop , THATS WHEN THE MULLETT IN PEOPLE COMES OUT !!!!!!!!!!!!! They sit there lookin at you with the look on their faces of , " what do you want me to do ? " So you wave them out again , just in case they did'nt see you wave at them , and there's that %&*$#@* look on there faces again . So then i think @#$$(*& ya , and thats how it is sometimes , i remember a person askin for some parts a little while ago , so some people here sent those parts and in return he just sat there with that mullett look and not one word of thanks . So tell me big kev WHAT DO YOU WANT FROM ME ?????? Do you want me to give you the mullett look ?????
Sometimes i think i could drink that much coke cola that i'm bloated and cant move ! doh
