i started this one about 5 months back using a stock 4300 kit, a 9300 hood and batterybox/ steps from eric at ppvintage.com , and an IH eagle 60" stand up i got off evilbay. i stole a 3406 cat from the revell snap pete kit.im using the tanks and set of wheels from an italeri western star. and i stretched the frame to acomadate the big sleeper. im going for an old school truck with a couple custom aditions. im putting a set of large vortex air cleaners on and have shaved the stock head light buckets so i can put a set of "j" bracket headlights also from ppvintage. i made a drop visor for it but not sure if i like it or not. it will be pulling the new moebius 53' reefer great dane. any suggestions always welcomed :) :D B)

here it is with the siminole stripes on, it is tropical turquoise base with white stripes out lined in black. i still have to put the black out lines on and clear coat. im not sure if i will bmf the strapless vortex breathers or the visor. lol you can see i got a couple spots in the stripes that did exactly turn out perfect but the black pinstriping will cover it up :D :D :D

Awesome! That's my sleeper that Jamie cast. I made it to be able to make an Eagle Brougham.

Sorry about the three pieces of "glass" not being molded in clear. At the time, there wasn't a way to have them done in clear. There's several things I want to change on the sleeper including having the glass done in clear.

I'll be keeping an eye on this for sure- I'm planning on starting a custom Transtar Eagle once I finish my custom LoneStar. Looks like you are even using the same engine as I plan to use. I'm thinking I might stretch the hood on mine, though.

That is looking sharp Dennis! The colors are sweet! Are you going to paint the reefer to match?

Jim


I think I am, just been tryin to figure out an "old school" paint scheme for a traler to go with the seminole stripes and the truck instead of just carrying the stripes thru.

I'm also thinkin bout putting a IH mural on back of sleeper
