Kenworth

Post by dv8v8 on Sat 18 Oct 2008, 12:59 am

This Kenworth is an Athearn model it was assembled and finished in the box, however i rekon it needed naturalising, steering was changed from left to right, high rise air intakes were added along with a driver and extra fuel tanks, the bull bar was scratchbuilt and the wheels were replaced, the difficult thing about this model was makeing these changes without damaging the paintwork, the trailer was discarded and replaced by the one u see, it has had an extra axle added as well as locker boxes and spare wheel hangar, then details were painted and some weathering added. this model is in 1/87 scale

1:87 scale! Your Macro lens must have been struggling to take this in? What a ripper of a model - you've done a good job of building and weathering on such a small level (I wouldn't be able to see those small parts).
