This is a AMT Kenworth T 600 with a Revell Kenworth frame and a Revell of Germany Beall Gasoline (Petro) tanker.

The AMT T600 was issued less than half way. It has a some what accurate cab and sleeper, but the old chassis and drive train of the 35 year old original W900. The Revell K100 has a more accurate up-to-date chassis, which was also longer. I also used the Caterpillar 3406 engine from the Revell snap kit Kenworth. I think it was a satisfactory improvement.

BTW, the AMT Kenworth W900 will never be re-issued due to it's frame being modified for the T600.

great looking build, can we see some more photos of the kenworth please, preferably against a plain backround, I've also got one of those beall tankers waiting to be built, did you know AMT have re released there old tanker in a chrome plated finish, I got mine off eBay from GS customs in the USA, £ 40 , including postage, currently in the process of building it along with an Ertl transtar, pictures soon

Edit: sorry didn't notice you were living in America until after I had posted, you're probably aware of the tanker

Thanks for the compliment. I can't post any more photos of this rig. It is in several unorganized pieces. The AMT tanker should be released sometime soon over here.
