That would be wild Chris! Be careful where ya drool though... I'd hate to feel responsible for you destroying your computer! :lol:

 

That's another good idea Ben! I would need to cut out the back of the cab to fit it on the frame... The engine is too big!!! :blink:

Here's the cab stretched. It looks a lot better than the mockup...

Half of that V12 is going to stick out the back! Could be interesting! by the way, how did you manage to cut that cab so straight?

Thanks Ben. I had already cut the first cab apart, so all I had to do was cut the second cab. The new re-issued kit plastic seems a bit softer. It took about 10 minutes to cut it apart...

Thanks David. Still thinking about metallic blue and silver, but now that I found the decal sheet in the new kit includes the special edition Peterbilt Patriot stripes, I may paint it white. I haven't quite decided yet.

Thanks Chris! They're not the greatest, but if you think about it, this kit came out years before fenders were popular. :)

Yeah Robert... That would be a little overboard maybe.

 

Tape... and tape... and more tape, and slooooooowly cutting with a No. 11 hobby knife. :lol:

I followed the mold lines on the cab at the rear, and the door lines at the front. I stuck a long single piece of tape to the lines, and then kept adjusting them until they matched exactly on each side. Then I used the the edges of the tape to make the cuts with the knife.

 

Thanks for looking and the question Robert, I'm always glad to answer any questions anyone has.

Thanks Jesse! And I hope that this build will remain worth watching... I'm in the middle of sanding the cabs, and getting ready to add filler. Just gotta figure out where I put the filler... :lol:

Got the cab finished on bodywork, just waiting for a warm day to paint it. I had planned to paint it pearl white, but the closest color I could find is Dupli-Color Candy White. Here's the update pictures...
