Thanks for all of the help guys. I checked out GWs cab and before I drop the cash, Im gonna give it a shot. I already have to scratchbuild the hood, so I might as well go for it. The good news is, the back wall of the sleeper is also the daycab back wall.
the window cutout is already there also. That just leaves the roof.
I searched and couldnt find any resin daycab, unless you know of one. It wont really be a big deal to turn the kit into a daycab. I really just wanted to make sure that things like shape of windsheild, shape of doors, cab width, etc were in the ballpark before I jump in. Thanks for the information, I really appreciate it.
Well, since hes not going to say anything, my speculation is Clayton got upset and deleted everything when he got called out for ripping several people off in bad trades. Go check the "good trader" pinned thread. Shortly after these post, the BRBO disappeared. Could be a coincidence, but I dont think so.
Ive wondered the same thing. The have been many Peterbilt cabovers copied in resin just to have bigger or smaller sleepers. There are a lot of variations that can be done with this FL cab. Single, double headlights, round fenders, different cab steps, square doors, rounded doors, rear windows, etc.
Thanks for your help. I saw a brand spanking new VHD mixer a few days ago, and its begging to be built. I figured Id grab the Italeri kit and start chopping away. I just wanted to make sure that the cab is close enough to modify.
The builds can still continue, nobodys threads were deleted. Maybe the guys that had completed builds should just post them under glass. I forget what the deadline was, but the builders that are still involved should take this over.
There was a thread here before showing the roof of a 1:1. Basically there are way too many rivets and seams. I think it should only be one seam. Ill try to find the thread. Your better off sanding the whole cab smooth and re-adding rivets later. It too hard to get all of the panels aligned evenly with out sanding the whole cab anyhow. The panel lines are way too pronounced. They should be sanded smooth and scribed. The roof panel line was sticking out about .050 on a cab I was working on recently.
