Hi all. I'm starting a semi buijld of a California Hauler 359 Peterbilt. I was wondering if anyone has done if of these before and customized it. What I'm trying to accomplish is to stretch the frame and maybe some other mods. I was wondering what to use for the stretch to glue in and what to use for the drive shaft. Also the plate on the top to cover the stretched part. If anyone has done one of these before or has a video or pics I would greatly appreciate the advise and help on how and what to use for this project.
New member,new to the forum,this is my first post.I have been in a slump recently with a move to a new house,work,life,etc.Needed something to get the creative juices flowing again.I spotted this kit at the local hobby shop and figured why not.Yeah,it's just a snap kit but with a little detailing I think it turned out ok. I build only for myself and all my builds go on the shelf,no contests. Anyhow this is a 1970's Peterbilt 352 COE.It's the Revell 1/32 snaptite kit.Exterior paint is $1.49 rattle can from the bargain store.It's called Ford medium cranberry metallic.Clear coat is Testors one coat.Decals are from the kit and spares box.A small amount of BMF was used also.Interior color is Tamiya light sand.First time I used flocking on the seats.A piece of satin for a blanket in the bunk and tissue paper for pillows. I enjoy looking at other posters builds.They give me inspiration and ideas.Keep up the excellent work everyone.
