The Kenworth T800 entered service in 1986, and is still in production.  http://www.kenworth.com/news/news-releases/2011/march/kenworth-t800-celebrates-25th-anniversary.aspx

And thank you Joe for the bull bars and headache rack!

Nice, so this truck would fit in fine with a modern layout!  I might grab one, I've always loved showcase miniatures quality but generally the era is just too old for me.

But the model is .04" too wide, has the wrong rims and the headlights don't work.  :trollface: :facepalm:

Yeah, but not everybody can design and print their own.   :P It is nice to have those in photoetched metal.

The gauntlet has been thrown.  Let the (model) truck wars begin! 

The first to release a comprehensive package of 1960s era medium and heavy duty trucks wins!  :trollface:
Now seeking Pacific NW N scalers to create a Modutrak-style modular club featuring NP's shared mainline between Seattle and Portland. PM me if interested.

Well Joe, this was my largest order to date. I think I am up to date on all your releases now.

Any chance of getting era specific passenger car variety packs? I'm thinking popular family cars for the 60's, 70's and 80's. The the dress that are really under developed currently.

I would love a 4 pack of 80's era Taurus Wagon (we have the sedan), Lincoln Town Car, Toyota Camry, and Chevy Lumina.

A 90's pack of Chevy Silverado, Dodge Ram, GMC Yukon and Honda Accord, Dodge Neon would be awesome too. I would buy multiples of these kits.

If you are planning on more MoW equipment, might I suggest a GMC Yukon hi rail vehicle? I would also like to see a series of Grumman step vans: Delivery, hi rail, hi rail cut away with puck up bed.

And we could use an enclosed backhoe too (Case, and Deere being my favorites).

Define "comprehensive package."
