Hello roKWiz and Swishy,

thank you for your help :) the model maker instructions seem to be correct.
I was just wondering how the Cab tilt mechanism can be so hidden
is it easy to get there, to operate the pump?


I know "auslowe", have ordered parts there last year.

You could always build it as an Australia built Kenworth 123. There is a company here who specialize in accessory bits to build it as such. https://www.auslowe.com.au/

To answer your queries......Remember most pieces will be on the opposite side of a US built truck.

1.cab tilt mechanism is located on my Aussie built K125 on the side of the left chassis rail under the sleeper of the cab (in front of the battery box.

2.I did have a luberfiner fitted under the LHS (AU style) battery box but it wasn't chrome plated. However some US truck do use chrome.

3.I have 3 air tanks fitted one aux. up under the passenger side of the cab (over the LHS front wheel) and 2 primary air tanks fitted down along each chassis rails inboard of the fuel tanks. Neither are chrome.

Hello everybody,

My name is Juergen, I live in Germany,
I am currently building a Kenworth K123 model kit (1:25) see,

https://www.scalemates.com/kits/amt-687-kenworth--142273



I want it to build as exactly as the real Truck.However, I think a few parts have not been drawn correctly in the assembly instructions + they actually look different
the parts from the kit:


https://www.scalemates.com/de/products/img/2/7/3/142273-26-instructions.pdf

Since there are unfortunately no Kenworth oldtimers here in Germany:
could an owner of a Kenworth K123 please give me detailed pictures?
(also by PN):
(No. see assembly instructions)
Section 4, part 12: Cab tilt mechanism: this is the hydraulic pump to swivel the cabins, is it located there on the frame?
Section 7, Part 16: Luberfiner: Is it chrome-plated and is it located under the battery box?
Section 9, Part 22: Auxiliary air tank: is it chrome-plated and is it located under the cabin?

Many Thanks
Juergen
