Hi guy's,

As it say's in the title I'm looking for pictures of Freightliner FLD120's or more correctly the engine bay.
I'm building the Italeri kit and would like to detail the engine bay with wiring and the like.

Can any of you help?

Ciao
Luciano

I have the same kit, i am looking for pics to the problem is the kit box does not say what year they have modeled the truck after, different years have different engines some have Detroit engines some have Catipillar some may have Cummins. if i new more about trucks than i would know what engine it has.

Thanks Tim, although thats a different engine it gives me an idea of the layout and the cab photos are a help as well.
Hope I can do this kit justice as this is my first truck in about 15 years.

If you have a truck question, you might want to try asking these guys:
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/modeltruckdiscussions/
or these guys
http://www.modelcarsmag.com/forum/viewforum.php?f=6&sid=40ce906749681838e20c998fbfc6c0b0

There's all sorts of truck fanatics (like me) on those two boards. If you cannot find the answer there, you'll never find the answer!

Good luck.
Jim
