Diamond Reo Advice Please!

08 September 2013 - 12:41 PM

Hey everyone.. I just recently purchased the AMT Diamond Reo, this will be the first build in a year (since the Italeri Pete 379) I'm lost as to what to do with this kit. I can't seem to find any ideas for paint schemes, or any reference photos for that matter. So if anyone has any reference photos, ideas, or tips they will be more than welcomed! Thanks!


Italeri Peterbilt 378 Project W/ Frehauf latbed

12 November 2012 - 06:08 PM

Hey guys, this is the start to my Pete 378, first of all I am aware the kit does NOT come with a Caterpillar motor, but I did not have adequate colors for a Detroit, and well, after all it is the modeling world, and creativity, and improvisions never hurt, right? Anyways, here are a few pics of the chassis and motor. The goal with this truck is to make an oversized load hauler, which I will be giving to my girlfriend. A little new to semi's so please bare with me :) thanks, Kyle

What are your opinions on the Italeri Peterbilt 378 "Long Hauler" kit?

01 November 2012 - 04:05 PM

I just ordered the Peterbilt 378 from Italeri, For those of you who have built it what should I look for? Any negative things with the kit? Any positive things with the kit? Also tips for a beginner would be greatly appreciated. My goal with this build is to make a "heavy hauler" or a truck that you might see on the ice roads of Alaska. What specific things can I do to make that goal possible? Once I receive the kit I will post a new thread and take you all through the build. Thanks very much!

Fruehauf Flatbed Pre-Build Questions. Tips needed

28 October 2012 - 06:53 AM

I am going to start working on the fruehauf flatbed soon, and I have a few questions.. First of all, I am sort of new to the tractor trailer building, so my future builds you will all see won't be able to compare to any of yours, but you have to start somewhere. My first question is; is it possible to make the trailer have the axles split? And if so, how could I go about doing that? Next question I have is how could I make an "oversized" load, and what could I make it out of? My goal with this build is to replicate one of the trucks you would see on Ice Road Truckers. I have ordered the Italeri Peterbilt 378 to pull this trailer, but I have not yet received it. Your questions/tips/pointers would be greatly appreciated to help me make this an awesome build.

Thanks!
Kyle
