looking for 1/87 semi truck models

I have built several Athern 1560 kenworth truck kits and am looking for any. I bought an Athern box with half a dozen of these kits in it a few year ago. Do any of you folks know if I can get anymore of these kits? At that time I know someone told me Athern did not make the kits anymore, but I found this box of kits only cannot remember where I got them at. I would really appreciate any help in locating a few more. I'm an N scale modeler, but love the 1/87 truck kits.

Thanks fellows

Con-Cor makes some great 1/87th scale HO scale sets, I think they have N-Scale as well.

I have bought direct from Con-Cor without any issues.

1/87 trucks

I have ton of malibu and herpa norscat and other trucks. I am also a member of the 1/87 vehicle and equiipment club, so I know where to get lots of different truck kits. I have a lot of herpa truck kits, most built, cab overs, conventional etc.. Thanks so much for helping tho, I really appreciate it. The older style Kenworths of the Athern line are the only ones from that era. No one else makes those old W 925's model. Most are the newer stuff.

Thanks again, sure appreciate the help
