    Peterbilt 352 with DD 12V71
    I have been thinking about building a Peterbilt 352 with a 12V71 and I have a question. The Round Two Pete only has one breather and air intake going to the 8V71. The few pictures I have seen of the 352 with a 12V71 have two breathers and dual intakes to the 12V71. Tim has one of a Alaskan hauler like that on his web site. I was wondering if it would be realistic to just use one breather air intake system that is in the Round Two Kit for a 12V71 setup . I am trying to cut some costs and not have to buy two kits. I have the P&P resin 12V71 engine. I would also like to see some pictures of a 12V71 I just haven't been able to find much on the internet. Thanks much for any help.

    KW W900 with Cat 1693 TA?
    Does someone know if Kenworth installed a Cat 1693 TA in the shorter hood tractor, like the AMT Movin On Truck. I think that truck had a 120" BBC.

    Peterbilt 359 Hoods?
    Does anybody know if Peterbilt made a 359 with a fiberglass hood on a 127" BBC model? If so do you know the years offered?

    Great ideas, I voted for the class 8 trucks, the dozer, the grain trailer and dump trailer. Thanks for this post. I sure would like to see some of them get into production.

    I would like to see Moebius do a Peterbilt 389 or a W900L with a Cummins ISX engine. I agree that Moebius has done a great job with the Lonestar and the new trailer. If they made a model with a Cummins ISX engine, you could even put that motor in other trucks and make them more modern.

    I was wondering why the ProStar has been delayed and when it will be released.

    What modifications did you make to the frame and doghouse to get the big engine to fit? I am going to do about the same build, different colors. Maybe I won't have to re-invent the wheel. Thanks, Charles

    Great looking collection, especially the 352 Pete. I need to get working on my projects, seem to be in a slump.

    I got 3 1693TA engines from Sourkraut's Model Trucks. They are the ones made by KFS. I have got one about 2/3 of the way built. It is the best model truck engine in resin I have ever seen and I have done several of them. His internet address is sourkrautsmodeltrucks.com.
