1:50th Scale Kenworth T800 Tractor

Kenworth T800 Tractor

Presented here is the Kenworth T800 4-axle tractor. The T800 is an exceptional replica of the full sized truck with a host of fine detailing as is expected from a Sword replica. The chassis of the truck has large chromed fuel tanks located on both sides with black painted fixing rings and tiny printed warning labels. The upper deck of the chassis has a diamond plate texture with chromed headache rack fixed behind the cab. Chains hang from the rack and the service lines appear from below which are terminated in small connectors.

The large and distinctive bonnet houses a large photo-etched front grill with prominent Kenworth logo located centrally and a large chromed bumper beneath. The cab has been authentically modelled both inside and out with the front window having painted rubber seal detailing with metal rear view mirrors which need adding to the model by inserting them into the holes in the cab frame. The roof sports two air horns and five amber lights with a chrome sun visor across the front of the cab.

The interior of the cab has sprung air ride seats with a fully replicated dashboard including dials, guages, controls and steering console. A nice touch on the model is the door windows which have been modelled part lowered. This also makes it easier to open the cab doors.

The distinctive air filters are present outside the engine bay and the bonnet can be tilted forward to reveal the engine compartment with the large engine block at it's heart. The chromed battery compartment has been populated with batteries and replicated electrical connectors and the cover slides into place. The opposite side of the chassis has an opening storage compartment fixed to the chassis and both also double as access steps into the cab.

The model is supplied with separate fenders and this is a nice touch, allowing the collector to choose how he wants to configure the truck depending on the trailer being connected. There are single fenders for the front most axle and a pair of double fenders that fit above the rear axles.

There are also two mud guard brackets with flexible rubber flaps, complete with printed Kenworth logos and a chromed cover which fits above the tag axle to hide the axle lift brackets.
