Nearing the home stretch. Getting ready to fully paint the cab and hood. Interior is pretty much finished up, just a few more details to go on this 1/16th scale Kenworth W900. See the video for a more in-depth explanation.
Update: The Kenworth W900 1/16th scale model project is now a rolling chassis! Check out the pictures below. If you haven't check out the other pictures you can see Part 1, Part 2, and Part 3 at the links provided.
UPDATE: Well it has been a few days, here is some progress. The first few pictures are the engine in its final phases of completion. Then dropping it into the frame. Continued with a few "weathering" details. Then the radiator and hoses are installed and then onto completing the fuel tank (on this model there will only be one) and the battery boxes/cab entry steps. The project is moving right along. If you missed the earlier updates you can find them here. Part 1 and Part 2
Check out the video as I scratch build some parts.
Adventures in modeling part 2. See part one HERE Suspension is all finished up as well as some of the drive-line. Axles installed and weathered with dirt and a bit of leaking oil. A variation of weathering techniques were used. Air brushing, washes, powders and dry brushing. All to simulate the wear and tear of a 40 year old semi truck. Stay tuned for more as well as update Vlogs!
