With the sun in the sky on Sunday I took the outdoor pictures of my finished Peterbilt 379-119 Long Hauler with detachable towing unit. Those of you who watched the progress in "On the Workbench" know that the model underwent some modifications, like stretching the frame, reshaping the hood, changing the front springs, rearranging the firewall, adding the ultra roof, and some other things.
Not only have I changed the truck but I also scratch-built the detachable towing unit (D.T.U.) and the headache rack. The unit is inspired by Holmes Miller unit. But with no dimensions available I can´t guarantee the dimensional and proportional accuracy. The unit is fully operable with the excetpion of the winch. The front supports can be extended and dropped. The desired position can be fixed with the pins, just like the real deal.
