  1. Got this in a lot I recently purchased, and don't need it. It's factory sealed and mint! I'm open to 1/24 or 1/25 big rig kits/parts, or 3d printed big rig stuff. $40 dollar value roughly for this. Let me know what you have, thanks!

  2. Just finished this one up, we'll 99.9% finished. Waiting for the rear fenders to arrive this coming week, then I'll post updated pictures. But as of now, it's good enough to show here! 

    Started with the Italeri Peterbilt 377 iron rebel kit. Swapped the kit sleeper out for an AMT Mercury sleeper. Added 3d printed rear drive hubs, hood ornament, exhaust stacks, mudflap brackets, and cab panels. Custom made decals, and other little odds and ends!

    Jeff I’m pretty sure that a T444E would be accurate for this if it is at least a 94 model. I think that there is somebody out there that casts a 7.3 Power Stroke that you might could use. I’m not sure of the differences between them, but I am pretty sure that they are basically the same engine. My brother is a school bus mechanic, I could ask him. 
    Cool project by the way!! I’m am definitely tuned in!

    The dt466 and the 7.3 are identical engines! One is just labeled as a Powerstroke, and the other an International, but, both are the same engine. 

    As for the casting, someone does make it. I have one in my stash actually. The name/caster "backyard resin"  sounds familiar to me?

  4. #24, My final build for 2022. This "unsnappified" snap kit Revell Peterbilt 359. I tried to change a lot of things on it to make it look less toy like. I'm super pleased with how it came out! Here's the list of mods done to it in no order: Italeri Cummins swap(painted like an N14 red top), AMT International Transtar 4300 steer rims, GMC Astro rear spokes, 3d printed hood ornament, exhaust stacks and whale tail, real rubber mudflaps, AMT 5th wheel, various decals from many kits, new seats and steering wheel, AMT 359 headlights and a.c. unit, reworked the passenger side sleeper to eliminate the door, and some other little odds and ends! Enjoy! 

    Oh and yes, I did even out the driver side drooping antenna after the pictures lol

  5. Just finished this up tonight. It is my first ever commission build. Did it for a buddy of mine back up in New York. He saw a picture of the first one I built 5 years ago(last 3 pictures), and has always wanted it ever since. So last month I told him I'll build him a brand new better looking one and he agreed. So now, it's finally done! Painted Testors Rootbeer brown. Only a few slight changes done to it. Scratchbuilt exhaust, rear hub covers, rubber mudflaps, and a deckplate. The daycab panel is the kit sleeper crawlthrough that I modified.
