    The only Euro touring coach in 1/24 or 1/25 is Revell's Cityliner. It is a much newer vintage, though, probably mid 2000's. It can be found, but it is pricey these days, as it is rare. Wish they made more buses.

    Nice!

    Sure thing, they also have other Pete 379 items of interest. https://www.shapeways.com/search?q=1%2F24+Peterbilt&type=

    Welcome back. I ordered your Prostar Daycab a little while ago and it is excellent!

    It was probably a fairly late model extended hood (127" BBC) 379. It had several custom parts common to 379 owner operators and show trucks. 
    On Shapeways you'll find several 1/24 scale parts like the hood, grille, and bumper specific to the movie truck. With those 3D printed parts along with the Italeri 378 kit and some other aftermarket parts you'll be able to put together a nice replica.
    To find the parts on shapeways search for 1/24 Peterbilt. Don't use Optimus Prime, the search engine is terrible and too many things come up.

    P&P resin had one a while back. Not sure if it is currently available, but it's worth contacting them.

    That's good news, I hope to see it happen.

    Beautiful truck!

    Wow! Where to I start? Simply wonderful, you don't see a lot of restomods on here in the big rigs section, especially working, non-show trucks (though this one could show too). Truly impressive use of detail and a tasteful paint scheme. It's realism comes partly just because of the believable choice in custom parts, not over the top, yet you don't see everything the first time you look. It's a model of a truck that could tell a story of how it sat neglected for years until some guy had a dream to re-build it. Wow!

    I just got mine in the mail today. What a wonderful kit! So many very detailed parts, and great resin castings. Worth every penny, especially on sale. Highly recommended.
    Now I'm just waiting for the upcoming re-release of the Italeri FLD 120. Good timing.

    Resin Freightliner Coronado Available Again
    A&N has brought back the Daycab SFFA, and it's on sale. I just ordered one, missed out the first time around. I picked up an APU too, it looks very detailed.

    We all truly appreciate your amazing work and contribution to our hobby. I have no doubt that Jamie will do an excellent job carrying on your legacy of fine craftsmanship. I'm looking forward to it. Thank you.

    Missing Link makes a resin 1978 Ford LTD 4 door. Excellent casting. Needs parts from the AMT 1970 Ford Galaxie interceptor to complete it, so there you go, everything you need.
  14. vincen47 added a post in a topic Revell 1:25 Kenworth K-100 Aerodyne   

    I'm looking forward to this one. Tim Ahlborn once mentioned on this forum that this kit has out of scale headlights. Anyone else agree? Are they a bit too big?

    Looks great! Makes me wish they'd reissue it all the more.
