    At this point I may just skip worrying about the engine and just use what ever 6 cylinder diesel I can find and paint it to match my engine, or at least mod it to be closer. It seems there is no 1/25 scale DT-466. I will have my work cut out for me on the ret of the bus, so engine detail may just have to be close enough.

    Amazing build, perfect weathering and details. Hard to tell that its not the real thing.

    I like the Italeri kits due to everything fitting and the details are great. I am working on a Pete 359 with NOS Peerless log trailer. I get annoyed every time I pull it out due to the poor fit and finish of every single part. The interior tub is so bad I just junked it and built my own. 
    I travel a lot, every week. I mostly fly, but sometimes I drive. When I drive I will take a few kits and supplies with me on my trip to work on in the hotel. I got one the the AMT Gravel trailers and started to sand off all the flash. By the time I was done with it, it looked like I had a Cocaine party in my room, there was white dust everywhere! I can only imagine what the maid thought.

    Please let me know if he does do a resin of it, I would love to buy one from him. You wouldn't know if its a DT466 or a DT466E? The E is the electronic version and the other is mechanical. Id be ok with either, but have a DT466.

    Thank you. My next Italeri is a Scania 143H 6x2 with stake bed. I hope to finish it with much more detail and less of a out of the box build.

    My Volvo FH16 Box Art build
    So, I wanted to build on of the Italeri 1/24 kits. This was my first. I must say the quality of the kits are far better than the AMT/ERTL etc kits. This kit I wanted to just build mostly box art style. However I did decide to paint the frame a metallic blue. So, its no show truck, but it turned out OK.

    So this is my personal 1:1 1985 International School Bus. It is a conversion, or Skoolie. I have turned it into an RV. The front end is not a problem, I can get a resin cab and hood, its the engine that is my issue.

    Looking for ideas for a International DT-466T
    I am wanting to build a 1:25 replica of my 1985 International Blue Bird School Bus. It has a S1800 nose and I found that, but I have no lead on a DT-466T Its a 6 cyl. 
    Any ideas what kit might have a good engine to make into a DT-466T?

    The first pick is a Ford Econoline, I think there is a kit out there for that one, or maybe a Jimmy Flintstone conversion. The last photo is super easy, its just a Ford C-600. AMT currently sells this kit as a stake bed, but it includes the parts for a C-900 like pictured. All you will need to do is change to dual headlights. 
    Ford Econoline Van, could be modified.
    The tank trailer could be a modified version of the on with the Dodge L700. 
    As for the Chevy trucks, the cab is the same as the C10-30 like this kit. Its a start anyway.

    As the others have said, it looks great with the red rims and 57 hub caps. I like it a lot. fantastic save.

    I love it, that is my favorite truck ever built. Paint color combo is perfect. Great job
  13. Oldmopars added a post in a topic Why is it called a "California" Hauler 359 ??   

    I believe it is because Peterbilt was founded in Oakland California and the 359 was built there. So, it was called the California Hauler.

    I have been working on fixing the wheel issue, the painted Alcoa wheels look bad. Here is what I have so far. I do have some more that do not have bubbles in them, but I did not get pictures of them. I now have a new respect for people that do rain casting of truck parts/kits. What a pain. 

  15. Oldmopars added a post in a topic Polish, clear coat Plastic bodies?   

    The rest of the kit I am painting. I assembled the frame, and painted it, the engine, etc. I have painted every part of the truck, but the body is just so nice, I hate to chance it with paint.
