My version of the Freightliner FLC
Posted 11 November 2012 - 04:02 PM
The truck is the Italeri Freightliner FLC....back dated by using AMT Peterbilt headlights. Other than the headlights, it is pretty much built as per instructions with a bunch of added details. These include: "Scale Hardware" acorn nuts x 60 for lug nut covers, "Realleather Craft snaps for hup covers, engine and chassis are wired and plumbed using small guage wire and solder, the underside of the hood was detailed using a paper towel and white glue for the insulation blanket, small chains were used to hold hood in place, aluminum tube was substituted for exhaust stacks and extensive Bare Metal Foil to detail body and door trim.
Paint is all Testors Model Masters Laquers....all the stripes are painted to match the sales brochure (Thank goodness for Tamiya tape)
I took the pictures to try and replicate the brochure in scale.....
Thanks for looking......

Fantastic! The striping looks like decals! Great job, as I know how challenging that can be! Only thing missing is the yellow race car(just kidding)...

Got to like the "older" non aero-dynamic trucks
