Finally buckled down and got all of the body complete. Every hole and crevase is filled with a piece of plastic and ready for filler and finishing.

Got some rough sanding done after the first coat of filler. Also made some side scoops for the air intakes of both engines. Made them from pieces of the P51 Mustang

Ive been itching to build a competitor for the Peterbilt. Ive been building it in my head for months now and finally had to get to work. This truck will also have twin Allison engines, but this time they will be side-by-side. As a result I needed a wider hood, so I visualized a twin needle nose hood. It took several attempt to get something I was happy with. I chopped an AMT KW cab and used a Revell KW long hood. I used the Aussie KW chassis and stretched it out. As for the rest of the body, I didnt want to do the same thing as the Pete. I came up with a Corvette stingray style rear body. I cut up half of an AMT tanker and quickly got what I was looking for. For the rear fenders I used four Kw front fenders. I widened the frame up front similar to a Mack DM to let the engines sit down in the frame. Heres what I have so far, still a lot of work to do on both. Tell me what ya think.

WARNING!! Lots of KW's were harmed during this project

Thanks a lot guys. I got a little further along on some bodywork. I used 2 halves of the transformers from the lowboy kit to make the rear fenders. I have to say, these things have come in handy. If you look a the front fenders on the Pete drag truck, they are also made from these. This is a big step with tying in the rear end with the stinger body. Lots of plastic fab to go

Thanks JT. Ive always been into scratch building stuff for my models, but before I discovered Evergreen & Plastruct, I had to rob what I needed from other kits. So I was always looking at the shapes of things. Then the discovery of evergreen just seemed like.......finding a boat after swimming and swimming and swimming

Yeah....I'm with you there.....I JUST ordered some square rod for a car hauler I'm about to get onto.....I didn't know I could get the stuff from plastic-models.....That free shipping they're having is awesome.....I'm loading up on all kinds of stuff....And I felt the same way when I discovered this place downtown that sells 4' x 8' .060 plastic sheets for just over $20 each......I about went CRAZY......I've been a scratch building fool, ever since.....Couldn't believe I could get that much plastic for that.....

I am not so much into customs but this is something special. Both rigs are awesome and this double nose KW is the wildest thing Ive seen. Brilliant ideas and top class execution. Wonderful!!!
