Up to your usual standards and then some. In one word: impressive!

Thank you very much for your kind words.

I attached hoses to the tubing on the lower side of the boom. It took a lot of my patience and still I am not quite satisfied with the result. I should have used a different material for the tubing and a different kind of glue. This one have eaten the plastic of the hexagonal joints and they are not in line too much now. I just hope it won´t be seen too much when the boom will be in its normal position. I haven´t seen a detailed pic of this part, so it was a kind of guessing game anyway.

Thank you guys. Even though I have a few different hooks, non of them looks like the one I needed. So I produced one of my own. I bended Evergreen rod above the candle flame and shaped it with a file. The eye comes from a russian battle tank IS-3 kit. It is slightly modified and the hook turns in it just like the real one.

Thanks a lot. Well, not everything goes as smooth as I wish. And this is where I really hit the wall. I tried a mirror foil to cover the tool box doors. I wrapped the door panels in the foil so that both the face and edges were of the same quality. Unlike the BMF, this foil does not stick to the edges too well and it stepped back from them over night. This is how it looks now:

The photo raised the details a lot more than it actually is. But I have to come up with something different anyway.

 

Another small item that I added is this pair of hooks on chains.

I am very sorry for the doors. They have to go off. Maybe I should have sprayed them with the alclad chrome. But I was not quite successfull with it so far. And each imperfection on this part would scream out loud. A chrome from a rattle can maybe...

Hello everyone. The Long Hauler Pete is back. I left this project rest for a while and now I am kicking off with the other end of the truck. I was waiting for some items to arrive. Now the ultra roof and the coloured PE dashboard is on my work bench. So, there is no excusse for not carrying on.

After spraying the London Bus interior I have some colour left. So, I used it for the Peterbilt interior as well.

Attached File  P4200336.jpg   134.62KB   34 downloads Attached File  P4270374.jpg   153.52KB   47 downloads

 

I got me these resin seats which I attached to the kit base. The seats will be a little higher which is very desirable for the box seats sit a bit too low in the Pete cab.

The CTM released a new set of the photo-etched parts for the Italeri Peterbilt interiors. The set includes the coloured dashboard, two kinds of steering wheel spokes, the safety belts buckles and shifting pattern for the gear stick. The dashboard is georgeous. Not completely flawless, but surely the best that you can get. I took the pictures at night under my desk-lamp. It doesn´t do the justice for the CTM work of art. Check their offer to see the better pics.

A little bit of progress on the interior. Another nice detail on the PE sheet for Peterbilt is a pair of the seat belt buckles and comfort latches. Unfortunately, the belt retractors and the shoulder sash guides are missing. So are the belts. I made mine out of paper painted black and scratch built the missing parts.

The wood grain patterns that you can see on the door panels are painted brown over yellow using a sponge.

I produced the red oval logos using decals as templates and placed them to the seats and the floor mat in front of the passanger seat.

The PE sheet brings even such a tiny detail like the shifting pattern on top of the gear stick.

I added a CB and FM radio to the interior details of the ultra-roof.

I did not take too much care of the sleeper interior as I won´t open it. But I did not like the molded mattress, so I covered it with a sheet and blanket.

My attempt to create a fan in the cab is a failure. I have the fan but not the cover. I tried several times to make one but I gave up. Some interior pics:

Using the ultra roof required some fitting effort but nothing too serious.

The standard grill has 3 vertical bars. I have seen 7 bars grills as well. I made mine adding four more bars from the spare PE sheets.

I won´t use the sleeper extensions. So, the appearance of the truck should be something like this:
