Union Pacific Peterbilt 377

Built straight out of the box...with some extra detailing....antennas, "rookie poles" and air and electric lines.
Painted with Testors Model Masters laquers to resemble a Union Pacific locomotive, decals are Microscale for a HO scale boxcar.
Enjoyed building this one and have since purchased several other Italeri kits....

P.S. I have a friend who works for, well I still refer to it as Conrail, along with his brother and their father. It would be nice to see one in the Conrail blue and white livery hint, hint...

Great job on this one! I like the Union Pacific livery, and the creative application of the available decals. I too have one of these kits that has been waiting to be built. Couldn't decide whether to build it as a straight elliptical or tractor drawn fire tanker/tender. After seeing Tim's conversion hood that Dave Natalie sells, it may end up sporitng that instead...

I really like what-if schemes! Your UP Pete looks spectacular!

Your Pete looks really nice - good idea with the paint scheme. Take the angle in the first photo and give it the right background and it would look real!
Looking forward to seeing some of those other rigs you mentioned built up.
