It begins! The Junk Man attempts to model. The idea is to replicate the truck as it is seen in these pictures, weathering and everything. Keep checking back to this blog for updates. I will try to keep good information on the progress of this build either with pictures and maybe even some video
Project objective: Use a model kit of a Kenworth W900 to replicate our own 1974 Kenworth W900A used on the farm (see picture below)
Model kit used: Monogram 1/16th scale Kenworth W900 Conventional plastic model kit
Skill Level: 3 -- Most challenging; glue and paint required. For ages 12+
Timeline: Hopefully less than a year
.Part 1: Starting by building parts of the frame. Here it sits after some flat black paint drying. Also pictured is the front leaf springs drying. I will add some washes or dry brushing techniques to add a little bit of "dirt" and "dust" maybe even some rust in the normal places before more assembly. Stay tuned for future parts to this project.
