Kenworth

Post by allan on Fri 20 Jun 2014, 1:43 pm

This is a resin Bullnose Kenworth coe cab that I picked up, it will be going on a very old Kenworth chassis that I got from sliverfox,  have striped mosted of the paint off the chassis all the chrome is gone too, still thinking on what to build it as a primer mover or put some thing on the back of it. I can hear some say not another one Laughing  this is a long project. Laughing

Thinking on making it a fuel tanker, here is the front end of the tank from the little Dodge L700.

I'm seen this cab a few times and always admired it, this is actually the first time I've seen one built and it's looking bloody good so far.

The tanker sounds like a good plan Allan especially if you can get some old oil company decals for it.

What do you think Allan, Golden Fleece, Neptune or something similar? G Fleece blue and yellow would look good on this.

Funny you say Golden Fleece as I had some decals made up it would look good in dark blue and yellow, Still thinking on building it LHD or RHD, Did think on putting Texaco on it as I have a Texaco gas station,was going to change it to a Golden Fleece one that's why the decals were made up. will make up my mind once the GMC is done, might be a while Laughing

scummy, that's what I will be doing with the back part of the tanker body is turning it into a dog trailer for it. Will have to use plastic card to fill both ends of it.
