    I've been super busy all week but today I put in a DAC album and worked on her for about 2 hrs. I didn't get much done but here's the progress....

    Thanks guys, i was sitting here looking at the body and just realized how crooked the decals are, they came right off and after some light sanding and another thin coat ill start over and pay better attention to it. Luckily i have a few sets of those decals sets around! My step dad used to work in a truck shop and he echoed what Force said. Also i need an opinion, what color frame should i do? I am thinking either red or black, i set it on the unpainted white frame and it didn't look right. Thanks again fellas!
  4. Hello all, its been awhile but in my spare time this last week i opened up my amt pete. I got the motor done and have started on the chassis and body. Im doing it pretty much out of the box, taking inspiration from other members builds. I know, i know peterbilt engines are supposed to be white but i like DD green better. How'd i do mixing the paint? It took 4 or 5 batches for me to be happy with the color. Thanks all!

    Beautiful work! I lobe it!! Also, I think I've found my inspiration for the amt I'm building, that is if you don't mind me kinda sorta using your paint scheme.
  6. Nope, came off the amt ford van.
  7. I have had a huge pile of old ford parts kicking around for awhile and got to throwing this together awhile back. It is finally at a mock up point where i can post it. It has an '80 cab and interior bucket as well as the front 4x4 axle. the bed, seat, steering wheel, roll bars, and the wheels and tires all came from two 1991 kits, the engine, transmission and and rear half of the frame came from the amt '78 kit as well as other parts from other things. Its far from done but here it is so far, i know it is far from accurate but i like the pieced together look

    Thanks for all the kind words fellas, i have actually been doing some more detail work on this rig. Mostly under the hood but also added the license plates on the back of the sleeper. I've noticed a few flaws put most i will probably just leave be such as the stacks which are slighty crooked. And an issue with the paint on the hood but anyway, here are some pics of what I've added under the hood, several more wires as well as radiator supports...

    I started this kit in October 2017 and finished it yesterday night. I added the sleeper and AC from the AMT White Western star. I also added the wheels, tires exhaust, front splash guards, horns and lights from the AMT White freightliner kit. Some of the other things like the other lights, the stack cross supports, trailer wires, air tanks, battery boxes, antenas and diamond plate deck as well as a few other things came from the parts box. Overall a pretty fun build. My one big gripe is that the hood hinges do not line up good. So detachable hood it is, Thanks for looking. Any comments, questions or suggestions are welcome.
