Thanks, Peter.

But when placed beside the 1:25 scale Studebaker truck,

it seems to be a might small, to be the same scale.

A front view of both trucks,

makes me think the Kenworth is a smaller scale,

maybe about 1:32

The cab's smaller size confirms my suspicion,

the trucks are not the same scale.

A figure beside the 1925 Kenworth really shows its small size.  :sad:

I'll put it in the parts box. 

The bed load and wheels, may be useful on another project.  

Regards, Dave L.

Today's easy project,

was to remove the load and top from this Studebaker truck model.

The top proved to be a little more difficult to remove. 

The back of the top snapped into place,
but the front was glued to the windshield piece. 

I had to disassemble the truck,
and run an Exacto knife along the glued joint.

The top eventually snapped off nicely. 

The wheels will need to be painted.  

Regards, Dave L.

Since I have many Studebaker roadsters with their tops down,
and only one top up version,
I am going to install the truck's top on one of the roadsters. 

Regards, Dave L.  





Update: 

The top is too short, to reach from the seat back, to the frame,
so the roadster remains a top down version.
