Hello, i want to show you my first try with an resin conversion kit from a.i.t.m., a Peterbilt 351 as daycab.

Base kit was the Round 2 release of amt Petrbilt 359 California Hauler.

Additional changes were steerable front axle, wheels from Dave Natale and scratchbuilt mirror support with 0,4mm wire.

Yes, I do like it. Plain and simple truck. But it takes some effort to make a model look like that. You ve done it just great. And nice trailer too.

This truck is just cool.  I really like the way you make it look so simple and clean, as said above.  Lots of talent to make it look like this.

Michael, I enjoyed all three of your builds here. Nice simple & clean. Any more to show us?

Not at the moment, sorry. But i will start a new build this weekend. A 1955 Kenworth Bullnose from Illini Replica.

If interest exists i will report the progress here.

You have really got some skills!! You have captured the look of the 351 for sure!!! My favorite builds are old school builds. This one looks like it drove right up out of 1969.

That's a nice honest looking old pete, this is proof that a clean simple build is sometimes exactly what the doctor ordered.

That's a really nice looking 351.  The flatbed looks right at home behind it.
