Kenworth

Post by DeeCee on Sat 09 Nov 2013, 7:59 pm

Hi guys, a while back, a friend gave me alot of old, damaged, half built and also some new kits he had in his shed, the only thing he wanted in return was to rebuild this Kenworth and come up with a paint scheme using Red, with silver or gold, so i played with a few different reds and some shading aswell. 
Alot of bits were missing, and some still are. Now, i know NOTHING about building trucks, but he just wanted something he could put on the shelf in memory of his brother who started it before he passed away many years ago.  I don't even know what sort of Kenworth it is.

Thanks for the comments guys, it was something way out of my comfort zone, Allan, i have also got a new Kenworth dump truck that might oneday accidentally get turned into a race car transporter, but not for some time though mate.

Yer it's a kenworth aerodyne cabover but is it a snap kit ? What happened with the panels where the headlights and side steps are ? The headlights are too high mate , like the paint work and the strips .

Thanks fella's, and Scummy, those panels were missing altogether, so had to make something out of nothing,  no, its not a snap kit, just half a kit, yeah, i realize the lights are too high, after i put them there Rolling Eyes  bit late to fix it though, mate is happy, he can now put it on his shelf, instead of in the back shed. Smile  Now back to something i know, CARS.
