Inspired by a TV show I watched when I was younger I thought I would have a go at making a kenworth K100 from a Globe liner body.

I started by collecting alot of pics from the web and making a timber mold for vac forming. This was the best way to form all the curves and profiles of the roof. The pics are of the 1st mold, I have since made a second mold which is a much better fit and alot easer to install. The bumper and radiator were made from alloy on my milling machine with plastic sheet made to blank out the original radiator grill shape.
I cut the sun visor into the roof to make it sit flush 1.5mm wire for the step rails to give it the K100 look

The chassis is an Aeromax cut shorter as non of the Tamiya chassis were the right lenght for the look I wanted.

You see it in its unpainted stage Still some work to do on this to complete it.

1 1 1 MFU controler just behind the front wheel 1 Shortened chassis makes for better proportions 1 lost the light lenses, Doooohh !! 1 The build 2 1 3




Oh, wow... This is just WAY too cool!!... I would say go for a dark blue colour, with light blue and silver striping... Looks great sofar!..



very cool personaly i'd go for either of the twotone metalic paintjobs like the metalic brown and gold or twotone metalic green as there seemed to be loads of kenworths with these paint schemes in the 80s and the brown and gold would look cool
