Hello All,

 

First time poster, long time modeler. I saw the Peterbilt 359 Kit at Hobby Lobby last week and picked it up with the idea to build it like my uncle's. I usually stick to street cars and NASCAR. Never have built a big truck before. Two questions:

 

1) Any idea what colors the truck and stripes are? He said the truck was a metallic gold.  (Found a Krylon Metallic Gold that looks close)

2) How on earth can I get those stripes correct with the silver/white (not sure what color) outlines? 

Any help is appreciated. Thanks! 

Chuck

Here are your pics - I cleaned them up a bit.

 

This 359 looks a lot like the Revell of Germany 359 kit.
