"Easy Assembly, Nice Details"
Bill_P
This is a fairly good kit for someone looking to build a nice looking big rig on a budget. My build is going to team this with the 1/25 Frauhauf Flatbed Trailer to replicate the W900 as they were for a specific company in the early/mid 1990s so I'll need to modify things a bit. The parts are cleanly cast, no issues with dimpling or warping. The external detail is nice and crisp, unfortunately most of the interior detail beyond the dashboard, seats and sleep area is non-existent. The chrome pieces look to be some of the best I've seen in a kit. I intended to strip the chrome and cover them with Bare-Metal Foil, they look so good I'll only do that for the parts with seams. I did notice one thing very odd, the mirror mounting frames can't be accurate, one leg mounts to the door, the other leg to the cab -- opening the door would bend the frame on a real truck. Fixing that is one of the changes I'll make to the kit, I'll also be moving the directionals and chroming the air cleaners to match the pictures I have for this project. I'm also modifying some parts to add lighting, the lights on top the cab will be difficult but not impossible. Currently I've test fit the parts, no problems there, and am proceeding with the mods I need to make for this project. This kit makes a nice build right out of the box and with patience and techniques it can be modded as the builder desires. You can go for a nice basic build or go hog wild on mods, the kit is open to options. Definitely worth the price.

"Kenworthless Kit"

Unlike the other reviews, we had a lot of trouble with this one. We started out fine until we came to the suspension, which didn't fit correctly. It took so much pressure to snap on the dual rear wheels that we actually snapped off one of the axles (we applied very gradual pressure). We managed to rectify this situation and continued on. We ran into the exact opposite problem with the front wheels - they were so loose that they wouldn't stay on - you could actually blow them off with a normal exhale. We then started to assemble the front suspension and the engine, which was a minor nightmare. The instructions had us install the Exhaust Collect AFTER the Crossover pipe - exactly opposite of the way it should have been done. By the time we discovered this, the glue had hardened sufficiently that we couldn't remove the pipe without further damage so we were forced to leave off Collector. We had trouble getting the engine halves to fit properly, which made all the bolt ons very difficult to install. At this point, I would cheerfully dump the rest of the parts back in the box and the box into the trash except that I bought this kit for my grandson and he wants us to build it. This was supposed to be a beginner kit - unfortunately, the only beginning about it was that it began to give us trouble almost immediately.

 
"A Good Starting Point"

As previous reviews have noted this is definitely a good kit for beginners as it is easy to build. The fit of the parts is excellent with glue not being required for many parts. However there is some detail lost that can be regained by a experienced modeler. For example the kit does include red or amber lights but instead has you paint them. This can be remedied by using left over lights from other kits. My other problem was the lack of decal options with most of the space being used for the lighting bolts that you would more than likely never see on a real semi. Overall my favorite part of the kit is the shear size of it. It was much larger than I expected and looks great. The size also allows you easily look into the sleeper and cab so I would recommend putting extra effort in those areas.
