PROTOTYPE AND BACKGROUND INFO:
Road tractors and semi-trailers are responsible for carrying a large proportion of cargo. Box or van trailers are the most common type of semi-trailers. They are quite simply a metal box on wheels with some doors on the back, though some offer additional access doors on the sides.
Athearn’s Kenworth model reflects the 1972 Kenworth version with larger windows, corresponding narrower vent windows, and lever-style door handles re-positioned to the bottom of the doors.
Known as Owner Operator rigs, drivers who own and maintain their own truck and trailer take great pride in their appearance. Often these are customized with a unique paint and are typically devoid of any logos or identification numbers. These for-hire truckers will often run Hot Shot loads of time sensitive or high value commodities across the country while also showing up at loading docks of big name corporations to small rural businesses.
