This is a build which has taken quite a while to complete.  But it is finished now. 

 

Hope you enjoy and thanks for looking.

Really sharp looking fleet you've got going there with this 352 & your 359M.  Fantastic job.

If you go to his Fotki album you'll see that the engine is a Cat 1693 TA.

 

Old Albion: Very nice bulld.

nice pete!  I see you made the front axle steerable and you even added the little strips on the sides of the windshield.i always wondered why amt left that little windshield detail out.

Thanks for all the comments. When I painted the cab with the clear coat it was still too cold outside.  This caused the fogging effect on the paint that you can see on the dark blue at the bottom of the cab.  I considered stripping the paint and starting again, but decided to leave it as it was.

Fogged paint or not, looks great to me! I miss seeing these big ol' cabovers on the highway.

Perfect detailing, even the injection lines are replicated (and in scale!)

Very nice. In my opinion, this is a hard kit to look realistic. The cabs always look to big for some reason. Ill go out on a limb and say that this is the best 352 build that Ive seen. Great job. All the little details make all of the difference.
