Tag Axle for the modeler

21 June 2014 - 01:55 PM

My current neighbor runs a trucking company. Weekends are normally heavy maintenance as the trucks run Mon - Fri.

I went over to see what all the noise was today and to my delight they are installing a new tag axle - but wait this is a kit for using old steer axles that the king pins haven't gone out of yet and easily found in truck wrecking yards.

The pics tell the story.

AMT Peterbilt 359

My goal was to finish this before June 1.  Many of you sharp eyed guys will notice a few things not on the Truck - Mirror cross brace, rear mudflaps, stack grab handles.  (mirrors are on temporary with white glue as well as the pogo stick) Sadly this will be packed away starting tomorrow 6/1 for a move to Montana. 

This is the first Peterbilt I have ever built,  I am sure I logged in close to 100 hrs at Tims Trucks  :lol:

I gave this truck poseable front wheels - another first.

Thanks for looking, hope you like it as much as I did enjoy assembling it.

This was my 50th B-Day present to myself last week . Picked it up off ebay at a $39.99 BIN price.

Sadly the kit does not have the spoke wheels as shown on the box. Blasted Alcoa's <_< instead.

Anyone know of a good source for spoke wheels ?

Ok, so I saw a picture of this elusive beauty for the first time today.  What a truck - sad thing is I cant find one anywhere.

Does anyone know of any sources to find one or what the story is on this kit ?
