well that's sad news that HobbyTown in Murfreesboro closed up. I now live in Montana so I guess it won't matter to me anymore but they were good people there.

darn if you ain't right Ben. I'm planning on building the tractor again and make it much more accurate so I will use your wheels then. sorry buddy for the faux pas. The trailer really tried my patience as you may well imagine. It is a bear to do from scratch and make as accurate as possible w/o that much documentation material. But I will use your wheels on the next rig and hopefully withing the next month or two have it all done. Apology offered Ben.

well here are the pics Ben, and your wheels are on here. note the different colors of each as they are on the real truck and trailer (the first truck in the movie that was used) I had a guy on another forum ask if I'd build the rig for him and I said no way. the trailer itself was a beast to get correct and some may say it looks different but they used different rigs in the movie.

Also I did not do the butterfly hood since the trailer wore me out but after talking to Eric from P&P at the Cookeville show I think that I will build the tractor again and do the butterfly hood. Hopefully I convinced him to do a resin Pete for that year with butterfly hood.

The decals are from Josh (Bedlam Creations). great decals and the license plates are from MiniPls.

well Duel didn't win anything but my well drilling rig won 1st place in  heavy commercial. I would have taken pics but someone put a big rig w/trailer in front of the Duel rig. I'll take some later to post.
