Peterbilt 352 Daycab with Double Drop Deck Trailer -- More Tractor Pictures


Recommended Posts

This is a more recent build of mine.

 

Many years ago I got a box with the remains of a built AMT Peterbilt 352, a brush-painted, damaged and incomplete glue bomb. I never knew what to do with it until I thought this could be a good start for my first conversion. Should I fail nothing would be lost.

Finally dismantling, paint stripping, converting into a daycab and replacing the missing parts wasn't half as difficult as supposed.

After finishing the tractor I felt encouraged to start my first scratch building project for the trailer. As expected compared to a kit it was laborious but also not too difficult.

 

Anyway both projects were much more fun than building OOB.

Thanks for the compliments!

 

It is often luck of the draw if colours and paint schemes on a finished model really turn out as nice as hoped for. This model is one of the few exceptions when I was really happy with the result.

 

I really like this one!  Do you have photos of the trailer while you were building it?

Unfortunately I have no WIP pictures. Probably I would have taken WIP photos if I really had been sure to finish the trailer successfully  :rolleyes: .

 

ok, i need about 75 more pictures of this:D

 

really, more pictures please....fantastic looking build, just beautiful, i love it:wub:

The unusual length of the complete rig made photos very difficult unless from a rather sharp angle. Otherwise the increasing distance between model and camera made details of the model hardly perceptible.

I am going to take some additional big photos of the tractor without the trailer probably tomorrow.
