Wow, I am totally blown away by that engine. I was also trying to get some info and pics of the twin-turbo 3408. One of my dream models is "Papa Clyde" of the Bill Signs Trucking fleet. I found a few pics of the engine but the turbo set up and the whole tubing is different. Let me know by PM if you want more.

David,

Yes my plan is to use LED's on it but I want them all to be hidden.

Its not to bad at all once you start.

Here's a big money saving tip.

Buy some poster board for patterns,that way if it want fit,you'll know and not lose a lot until you get it right.

 

And there's a lot of scratch builder's on here myself included that will give you tips anytime so feel free to ask.

 

I've been looking in on this build and its looking very cool.

Thanks for the ideas Earl.

Thin cardboard works as well or you will be spending alot of money on sheets of plastic.

I remember my first scratch build back a few many many years ago.

I took an International and used the Mack Convoy truck and some plastic from a window blind to build my first place winner at the age of 16.

After all these years I managed to still hang on to one of the first trucks that I built as a kid.

 

Buy the time that I started to get into doing another scratch build I was getting alot better.

I then chopped up a 1/16 scale KW and first time with a cheep airbrush, built in the mid eighties.

So my big Pete is only my third big scratch build that I have done.I am learning as I go along with the help from reading other forums.

 

Nothing is impossible take your time and make sure that your body work is really smooth or the final result will look like a hack job.

 

Thanks for all your comments and any helpful advise is also welcome.

 

Thanks, Kenny B B)

Absolutely insane! 

 

I think you are very modest.

 

 

Heck, if I can come out as good as some of prior works, I will be elated!

Good work on the international and 1/16 kenworth. I learn something on every build as well. The peterbilt is shaping up well.

Norman, sorry for the slow reply. I think ideal thickness is .050 if you can find it. My hobby shop seems to be out of stock on it.
