New member,new to the forum,this is my first post.I have been in a slump recently with a move to a new house,work,life,etc.Needed something to get the creative juices flowing again.I spotted this kit at the local hobby shop and figured why not.Yeah,it's just a snap kit but with a little detailing I think it turned out ok. I build only for myself and all my builds go on the shelf,no contests.

 

 Anyhow this is a 1970's Peterbilt 352 COE.It's the Revell 1/32 snaptite kit.Exterior paint is $1.49 rattle can from the bargain store.It's called Ford medium cranberry metallic.Clear coat is Testors one coat.Decals are from the kit and spares box.A small amount of BMF was used also.Interior color is Tamiya light sand.First time I used flocking on the seats.A piece of satin for a blanket in the bunk and tissue paper for pillows.

 

 I enjoy looking at other posters builds.They give me inspiration and ideas.Keep up the excellent work everyone.

That is good inspiration for a 1:25 double bunk... Nice model and color Rob! Those 352's look better with a larger cab. (Me thinks...)
