    Default King Hauler / Kenworth W900

    I've had this build done for a while.
    But it's one of those builds that's just never done.
    I just keep adding to it.

    Here is how it started.
    I was going to cut and splice my frame rails to lengthen them.
    Found this to be unreliable, They flexed and sagged too much.




    So I cut my own new frame rails out of .75 X .75 aluminum square stock
    Much neater cleaner and more reliable

    After getting all the holes drilled and tapped, now came my favorite part.
    Body work
    I cut the sleeper to add length to it

    I remover the top of the sleeper to add a MONOGRAM Model roof to give the truck it Aerodyne look
    Many of the Kenworth accessories can from the 1/16 scale Monogram Kenworth Model
    I also sacrificed another set of KH fuel tanks to make the oversized fuel tanks.

    Now it was time for head lights. Wasn't sure if I should go old school or stay with the W900 look

    I liked the square ... They seemed more to scale than the small round ones.




    It's getting close to time to paint... So another good heavy coat of primer to hide any imperfections and then a light sanding. OFF TO PAINT

    Well here is were it stands now.

    Hope you enjoyed the build..... Still not done yet.

    I have to finish the electrical... I just got some aluminum rims for it.
    And all aluminum drive axels.

















    I also made the hood tilting
    And put a 1/12 scale C15 Diecast engine under the hood.


    Hinges mounted to the grill

    WOW, this bad boy is getting really pimped out. There are so many great details.

    Love where you mounted the MFU control unit on the back
