    Pat has announced a new truck kit. It is a Kenworth K100 day cab in the Yellow Freight System paint scheme. The model will only be available direct from Trainworx.

    This is the first release of the KW K100 in the day cab configuration!

    Rod,

    The K100a went into production in 1963. However, the paddle style door handles near the bottom of the doors were introduced in 1973. I am still looking for photos of a Yellow Freight System K100a. Unfortunately, with the demise of Hank's Truck Pictures, that task has become a lot more difficult.

    Edit: I found the prototype photo for Yellow 2347 on an Auto Modeler forum: http://www.automodeler.com/modules....le=index&req=viewtopic&topic_id=169469&page=1

    No information on the date the photo was taken, but the photo appears to have been on Hank Truck Pictures at one time, and is now on photobucket.
