    Are you sure that's not a 1:1 tuck? Killer build. Can't wait to finish mine.

    Cool color choice. Looks great with the stretched frame, I assume it's about the same length as the LoneStar kit now. Good idea for a trailer too.

    Lot of final assembly going on--putting all the lights on, chromework coming together, snapped the hood trim strip (minor setback), cab/sleeper looking awesome.

    Don't have pictures, but I finally got the turquoise on the body work. Talk about a lot of area to paint.

    Just smoked the rearmost axle trying to get tires to attach; time for some serious repair! OOPS!

    Update as of 10:53p.m.--

    That axle is toast, had to remove it except for the hangers, luckily the "jockey box" from the trailer covers the back section of frame completely. As long as no one asks to see the underside of the tractor, no big deal. Basically the tractor is now single drive.

    I WANT THAT TRAILER! Huge NASCAR fan. Bravo, brother.

    Turned out fabulous. Great color choice. Really dig the decal over the sleeper window.

    Wish it wasn't still winter in Ohio so I could get the paint on mine.

    Now this is what I call a beast! Awesome work.

    Just swapped out the Revell snap-Pete tires out for the AMT wrecker tires, what an improvement. The AMT tires with sidewall detail look give a realistic look. 8/10 Revell snap tires had a horrible sidewall bulge that would not seal onto the outer wheels.

    Pete 359 with Peerless Logging Trailer
    This project was going to be an AMT 359 (wrecker) with the Peerless Logging Trailer behind it. Well the frame in that AMT is beyond junk, holy multiple warps! It must have laid around forever along with the old molds, not gonna happen!

    So here's the recovery, modify a Revell "Snap" Pete to become the prime mover, throw in some parts from the AMT Pete, hook it up to the Logging Trailer, and let 'er roll! And use a Revell Germany Alaskan Hauler front bumper.

    Pics to follow as work progresses.

    Chassis finished--







  14. weirich1 added a post in a topic Pete 359, finally done....   

    That's an awesome combination, color matched all the way is cool!

    Change of plans: the Revell fenders wouldn't match up without major re-locating of mounting holes, which would have made me drill right into crossmembers. So I decided to use the kit fenders, re-located back closer to wheels, looks a lot more accurae compared to where Moebius holes were. Images once I get the chassis finished.
