Lone Wolf89 added a topic in On the Workbench: Big RigsScratch built Freightliner PowerlinerHello everyone!
Here is a project that I accomplished a while ago after several months of fabrication and decided to display some pictures.
Entirely scratch built WFP-7564: cab, engine and chassis were made from sheet plastic. Sheet aluminum and tubing was used for grille, bumper, doors, exhaust, wheels and fuel tanks.
Plastic profiles were used for engine block, transmission is fabricated from fiber glass
Thanks for looking,

i used sheet styrene for the cab, hood and bumper. Chassis is Evergreen styrene. Wheels are made of aluminum and curtain rod. Doors, grille, visor, exhaust and skirts are aluminum as well. I used Italeri tyres. Interior has vinyl upholstery
