The Peterbilt 359 is a lord

Excellent Philippe. J'ai sauvegardé les photos du moteur pour commettre du plagiat. (I'm telling Philippe I stole pictures of his engine to plagiarize them.

Hello Mike , thank you for your comment.I agree with you. Concerning the tyres, i think to it while the workbench, but it was too late the wheels were assembled to the frame, i couldn’t replace them anymore (Snap tite assembly), that’s sure it is not the most realistic tyres. Concerning the engine, according to me , if you begin to do, even a light weathering , you have to do the same thing to all parts of the model. If the color engine was red (for example), it will be less lightning,but you’re right the next time, i will use dark grey primer before white painting .😀😀😀

Hello grodudulle,

Thank you for the reply. I understand now about the tires.

Concerning the motor, my intention was not to induce a "weathering", but only to add some color to break the overall "whiteness" of the motor.  Please excuse that I offer a photo on your topic.  Here a white motor, brand new, just it shows some color contrast;

You have wonderfully added a few accessory details to your white motor, excellent. 

I really don't realize the need to use a "dark grey primer before white painting", just here and there a touch of something other than stark white could prove to be a good thing for a truck model.  But this is just my opinion. Yes, I've built a 359 model before.  Just not in styrene.
