I didn’t know Kenworth made a “woodie”. ;)

Here’s a simple idea to make it pop even more. Do just the tires in black, then finish the wheels either in natural or a metalic. Do the lug nuts a contrasting color too, and PRESTO! A far more realistic look with little extra work.

I really want to do a few of these T & J plans. Being ex – military, I’d like to do the Jeep and the deuce & a half. If they come out nice I’m thinking of donating them as trophies to the highland regiment I keep in touch with, the Queen’s Own Cameron Highlanders of Canada. Mount them on bases and have brass plates screwed on. I’d like one to be for the top first year trainee and the other as a challenge award for shooting to commemorate my dad who was (among other things) a rifle instructor and winning competitive shooter during WW II.

Of course, then I’d have to make another set for me. :)

You always do such nice work…..... This KW dump is no exception. Tonka has nothing on you…

The T&J plans are great to work with. I have done a few of them myself.

Nice job, nice truck….... would look nice sitting on the Birch desk you did. Well done.

Really nice job! We gotta know the details. How large is the truck? By the way if you want to make a couple more, I’ll send you my address. The grand boys would have a ball with one of these! :)
