A 1:17 scale replica of a Kenworth T680 Semi Truck in red, white, and blue.

A little white ago I created a 1:18 Peterbilt Custom truck in yellow and black to tow a lowboy trailer with construction equipment. To coincide with the classic, square, and rugged looking Peterbilt, I wanted to make another modern, smooth edged, and aerodynamic looking truck. So I chose to model a Kenworth T680 in the same scale. The color scheme is very similar to Ingmar's (2LegoOrNot2Lego) US Truck Mk II, since I had previously built that and had a bunch of red, white, and blue pieces.

The model has 3 power functions. XL-motor for drive. Servo for steering. M-motor attached to PF switch to remotely control all of the lights on the truck and any trailers.

The very first build featured a two speed gearbox similar to Madoca's SUV Mk II. Just like I did in my Peterbilt truck, I eventually chose to remove the gearbox in favor of better reliability for towing.

In late 2016, I updated the following features of this model thus creating version 2: New hood geometry, improved scaling dimensions (lengthened door by 1 stud, sleeper by 1 stud, overall length increased by 2 studs), smoothed out sloping of sleeper aero, updated differentials, updated bodywork, new tail, narrowed frame by 1 stud, moved motor controlling RC lights from engine bay to sleeper.
The parts list here is for the "v2" instructions.
