Promoting Excellence in HO Scale Vehicle Modeling

JK Freight Lines Freightliner FLB 6364 - By Johannes Kamitter

Here's another great model from young German modeler Johannes Kamitter. It is a Freightliner FLB 6364 for Johannes' JK Freight Lines. He started with the Promotex Freightliner FLB 8664 and cut it down to day cab length. The next thing was to rework the form of the front to match the prototype. After painting, he added wipers, handrails on the front and sides of the cab, mirrors and door hinges, all made of thin styrene. The Promotex chassis was stretched and equipped with A-Line fuel tanks, scratchbuilt tool boxes, a spare tire holder, snow chains by A-Line and lots of things made from styrene. He chose a 40' trailer from A-Line that was painted and equipped with decals.
