    I stopped by the hobby store on the way home from work. I got a few ideas up my sleeve! I'll post on the workbench once I get a little free time to start on it!

    Diamond Reo Advice Please!
    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
    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

    Tim, do you have any reference photos as to the air line routing?

    I have heard the complaint about the picture on the box not being accurate, I am not all that concerned with that. On this build I would like to add a pusher axle, a 20,000# front axle, headache rack (due to the fact that I'm going to be placing a flatbed behind it) and a light bar, with possibly a few extra work/spot lights around the cab, but I am unsure where I can find those things, and I am not quite skilled enough to make my own. Would you have any ideas on where I could begin to look for them? Thanks!
