- History of Scale Models
The Kenworth Truck is a legend on American highways. The Kenworth name, synonymous with large trucks, maintains an image of high quality to this day. Founded in 1923 by Seattle businessmen Edgar Worthington and Harry Kent (son of Frederick Kent, a partner in the predecessor company, Gersix Motor Company), taking the first three letters of "Kent" and the first five of "Worthington", the company was born. The following year the company sold 80 trucks. In 1933 Kenworth became the first truck maker in the United States to switch from gasoline to diesel engines. They were also one of the first to come out with a cab-over-engine, or COE, model in 1957.
About the Model…
Arcurio’s limited edition Kenworth Truck is handcrafted in a scale of 1:12 according to Kenworth’s original plans. Three (3) different types of premium European woods are used: Alder, Ash, and Maple. The wood itself is left completely natural, using only olive oil and wax to finish each model, not paint or other chemicals. And all 128 parts of this model are individually hand assembled with meticulous care and perfection to ensure each wood grain seamlessly matches the next.
Included on each model is a disconnecting trailer, removable load, adjustable U-shaped beams, fold-out stands for the trailer and many other refinements. In addition, each Kenworth Truck model comes complete with a brass plate engraved with its own unique production number.
