My goal was to finish this before June 1.  Many of you sharp eyed guys will notice a few things not on the Truck - Mirror cross brace, rear mudflaps, stack grab handles.  (mirrors are on temporary with white glue as well as the pogo stick) Sadly this will be packed away starting tomorrow 6/1 for a move to Montana. 

This is the first Peterbilt I have ever built,  I am sure I logged in close to 100 hrs at Tims Trucks  :lol:

I gave this truck poseable front wheels - another first.

Thanks for looking, hope you like it as much as I did enjoy assembling it.

Super sharp clean build. Love the color choices and it being a day cab. Some real nice work Sean...

Thank you everyone for the comments and well wishes for the move. :)

 

I also painted the air deflector for this kit black. I did not mount it for obvious reasons.   I really want to find some logos for this truck and some plates for it.   Also I normally build a "first kit" clean to learn the quirks then the next of the same will show a rougher life.

 

What do you think - should this truck be pulling a Tanker ?

Tanker would look good.

Looks great, Sean.  Either a tanker or a flatbed would look nice.

The tanker would be cool or the fruehauf flatbed with a load of rolled steel, make it look like a clean local steel delivery truck

I see it with a matching flatbed, or a matching post van.

As I said in your "Workbench" post.....This is a great build.....I really like your doing the poseable steering....Makes a big difference....I, too, like the tanker idea.....Should look pretty awesome...
