Kenworth and Steer Car

Recommended Posts

Ok, I haven’t done too much on this build lately but I’ll post it up anyway. I have another project I’ve been working on and am hoping to get back to this shortly. I’m using the KW T600 as a base kit, resin W9 hood, stretched the frame and added a tag axle. 

Chassis is painted now and wheels installed.

The Steer Car is a Peterbilt 359 with a Z’d frame and cut down cab. No engine as they are steered by electric servos..

This is where it is so far. I’m also building a tri axle dolly that the beam will span across that and the Pete.. It has the mirrors from the T600 on it.

Tow bar on it..

cab and hood are painted a burgundy color right now but not happy with it. May get re painted!

That’s just too cool!

Thanks Tom!! I like different as you can tell... LOLCan kind of see a bit of the dolly in the one pic, have to get some pics of that as well as up to date pics of the entire unit some day!! I'll post some pics of a real steer car to so peeps have an idea of what I'm building after. Or you can look up "Boeing Steer Car" and get an idea too...

Been getting a lot done on this and realized I haven’t posted progress pics here! Ugh 😑 

Dolly is mostly together now. Getting ready for paint, wheels for it we’re painted tonight. Load is roughed in and needs bracing put in on it..

Brake lines and air lines on dolly..

That is one massive looking rig Kerry, but with that steer car it may not take forty acres to turn it around!😀 Looks Great!

LOL, hopefully she'd turn easier!!!

That’s cool! Going to have add a new wall at the house to display it though... lol!

New wall? May need a new room!!! This is pretty long and it won't be displayed at home with the beam. The steer car will be on the hitch on the dolly when home!!

Kenworth May be painted like the Pete or I’m thinking about building it like my friends W9. Either way the dolly will look good behind any truck!
