Finally got around to taking some photos of it finished. Plus with the photobucket cash grab ,having to get a new photo sharing site set up. Inspired by photo of real truck on Hanks Truck Picture site. Resin cab and hood, scratch built frame with resin rear suspension. Converted tilt hood to fold up butterfly style. Headlights needed re-positioning , closer to edge. Scratch built side pod fuel tanks, photoetched  emblems(had to cut 'Kenworth' off bar and glue individual letters on hood sides), stack surround and wiper blades. Turned aluminum air horns. Model master paint, computer printed decals. Thanks Doug.

Excellent.   A back dated AMT Fruehauf reefer trailers would be a good match.

Hi, they pulled flat beds mostly. Thought about scratch building one but kinda like the bob tail look, matches the picture too. Thanks, Doug.

Really beautiful work Doug ! ....every detail is there, everything is dead on (as usual ),.... l admire the precision and the accuracy that you put in all of your builds.
......"Automatics?....we don't need no stinking Automatics !"
