MidAmerica Freightliner ReVolution Innovation Truck

 In what is quite possibly an extension of MW day where the grand jubilee lasts all week, here are some more pictures a "FreightlinerGuy" could appreciate.  Specificaly the ReVolution Innovation 2 truck in the Freightliner booth at the MidAmerica Truck show.  The truck was quite a draw, the real truck looking almost as good as the scale models Tonkin Replicas made of the unit for Freightliner.  

MATs

Nice Western Star 4900Ex at the MidAmerica 2012 truck show.  Western Star had a heavily detailed booth with tons of small "points of discovery" inside a theatre based booth.  Of course the highlight had to be the 1:53 Western Star 4700 (aka Zodiac) from Tonkin Replicas...

Matt Ward Day?

One thing we learned at Tonkin Replicas is people are into different things.  Everyone has their own... deal.  Officially it isn't really Matt Ward day, but you'd think so with all these Freightliner fairings getting prototyped.  No one gets more excited then him for new fairings, especially when it comes to Freightliner.  So to honor the day, check out this new Midroof XT fairing and have a happy MW day!  

New Fairing?

After the wild success of the "FreightlinerGuy" style of Freightliner Cascadia fairing, we thought we might follow up with a new older style of fairing that can fit a variety of cabs (including the W900 shown) before we received 10,000 e-mails requesting it.   So now that we made the prototype we'd like to know what we should do with it.   Comments?
