It's been awhile since I done a work in progress post. I'm hopeful I will be able to maintain my momentum on this one. I've had this one planned for a couple of years, and finally picked up the Italeri U.S. Wrecker kit last year so I could get started. My plans for the kit are to end up with something quite like this. The Italeri kit is a no brainer, it is the only LTL kit I know of. I'm planning on a piece of ABS pipe for the tank, heated and flattened into an elliptical shape (first time I've tried this so wish me luck) and various bits of styrene for the other tanker body components. I'll be stealing a Caterpillar 3406 from the Revell Peterbilt snap kit for power, then there is the daycab conversion which I have already done. Here is where I currently sit. The kit comes with a fancy chrome grill shell, while the real truck has a smoothly integrated body color grill surround. Was easy enough to blend the grill into the hood, then mask off the bits that will stay chrome. Hopefully will have more progress to report soon.
Hi all, Nice to find this forum. I was researching a problem and stumbled across this site. My question is this: Did the AMT fuel tanker that has been repopped by Round2 Models ever appear in the colors and markings of the Love Truck Stop? You know the one...solid chrome yellow with red hearts on it. Any help you can offer (including maybe a photo) would be welcome. BTW, I'm using the old AMOCO version from AMT that isn't plated. Thanks in advance for your assistance. Richard Marmo
