Pete Bed Bugger and 53'er

11 December 2014 - 01:14 PM

Gotta repost this one.....Quick recap....

I built this one using the snap Pete from Revell....Added a sleeper to compliment the stretch....And then the Moebius 53'er, of course.....I used the kit decals....I had to give them a go, anyway, because if I hadn't, I would have had a bunch of them setting around the garage....Surprisingly, they looked pretty good....I thought they'd look cheesy, but they, actually look pretty good....

T600 95% Done

09 December 2014 - 06:17 PM

I posted this in the wrong section, somehow...Please move this to Under Glass, if you could ever so kindly....Thank you in advance....

Well, Boys.....I decided to call this one done for now.....Signature orange, of course.....I need some decals and lines for it....I'm thinking some Schneider International, but I've got a lot of projects I want to get to over the winter....I'm gonna come back to this one....BUT....I did decide on the trailer for this one, though.....It started as an AMT Fruehauf Van, but I lengthened it, and added some side skirts..... So without further ado.....Here we go.....
