    I like the air filter set-up and the paint job as well! Truck looks pretty good.

    I would love to have one of these of my own. It would be nice to see Round2 re issue it!! The ones I've seen on Evil Bay are to much, I mean come on it's just plastic not gold .

    Anyways Kevin, nice job on this one!

    Thanks Sean for the comments. The fuel tanks were painted with Testors model masters Aluminum Plate in a spray can. The next step was a cote of dull cote. This gave it the unpolished aluminum look. I then put bare metal foil over the tank straps. This gives it a more real like look.

    The paint for the cab body is Tamiya Light Gun Metal. I try to catch as much detail as I can, like for example the simple thing as the air fan clutch. This gives something else to catch an eye to look at.

    All in all its a good kit and I would build another one . Like many others it has its flaws. The main problem with the kit is too much flashing left on the parts. The next one is the tires that Revelle of Germany includes. I installed the Moebius tires on the truck. I should have used the rims as well. The pictures above do not show it, but the spacing between the duels is horrible. It looks alot better though with the Moebius tires for sure.

    Cool firetruck. Lots of good details!

    Its a good and fun kit for sure. The detail of the model is really good except the tires. Why Revelle went cheap on them is a wonder! .

    Yeah for sure. The headlights are from the AMT 352 Peterbilt kit. This one comes with the square lights, didn't care for them so off they went. This also takes it back to the one my dad drove.

    Thanks guys for the positive feedback.

    Yes for sure! truck looks great for a first build! I started using bare metal foil just a couple of builds ago and I agree with everyone that has mentioned it, the stuff really makes a great job on detail. Everything from door hinges to tank straps. I get mine from Amazon since the local Hobby Town has an issue with ordering it. If you want to find more model trucks check Amazon and Spalding trading and shipping. Sounds like your in the sticks and I've found out that I have more choices ordering online verse going to the store.

    Good luck on your future builds!

    Revelle Of Germany 359 Classic Large Car
    Hello All,

    Been busy again with another build. It was a good build for the most part. My dad drove a truck very similar to this one except it did not have the 600 horse Cummins. His had the 425 3406 C.

    There have been changes but only suttell one's. For starts, the wheels. The wheels that come in this kit are ugly!!. I added the mobieus tires, I should have used the rims as well. The spacing between the duals are not correct, but still looks ok.The air filters are from the Italeria 378 long hauler kit. I added carpet to the floor so when the doors are open there is more to look at. This makes it more like the truck I remembered as a kid.

    Anyways here is the finished product, enjoy!!
