This looks like a new 1:50 truck to me. Look at about 2:27 into the video.

Was that a T880 with an undated grille?

Using the Lego person as a scale reference my guess it's a 1:64 scale truck. Definitely not a T880 as it doesn't have the set back front axle. It's getting harder to tell some of the new truck designs apart but I wouldn't be surprised if it's not a Kenworth.

That is a T880. It's the T880S, Kenworth's new replacement for the W900S, certainly an odd choice for a tridem semi tractor. It'd be better suited as a mixer or a dump truck. I really looks 1:50 scale to me. I was bored last night so I did a little study to figure out for myself, using one of my own mini figure stand in and a FG Peterbilt 367. A lego mini figure is 4CM tall (about 4 bricks high) plus or minus a few mm for the hat or hairpiece, thus the extra thin brick on the bottom.





It's not accurate by any means but it does give you a better idea of the scale. Personally I think it is 1:50 Scale.

It’s in a Kenworth commercial, so I would have to say it is a Kenworth and if it was not then someone in marketing is going to be on the unemployment line.

Thanks, guys, perhaps this will mean actual mixers or new castings. I see lots of "S" models in my region.

Kenworths, and all other trucks, sure don't look a s tough as they used to. Whistle

They are all headed in that "anteater" direction with a lot of plastic. The new Autocar comes with a steel cab and dash!. At least most of them have a "square" front end model. d'oh! d'oh!

It's under Diecast Masters Facebook page, but you have to login into Facebook before it will come up to view. I tried to put a link and it doesn't work, just takes you to a blank page unless you are logged in to Facebook.
