That's really strange. Hope you don't mind, I went in and added those to the original post. PM me if you need any more edits and can't for whatever reason, and I'll get it looked after. :)

 

Thank you !!! I noticed the edit option was missing after a few days, figured it was a time issue ..

I got it from AITM but I think it was one of Illini’s.

Awesome  ! I wondered if it was Illinis or a Spaulding

I just happened to notice this thread in the "How To Use This Board" section of the General part of the forum and this should answer everything. It seems this "feature" has been in place since February by one comment, but with the new year and new community builds coming around, it seems no one has noticed it until now.

Dr. Kerry here! Lol... ok, just wanted to let everyone know I’ll be working on a Pete wrecker that has been rebuilt 3 times and on its 4th one now. It’s in primer and I’m working on a lift for the back currently. 

Mill get some pics of it and post it up when I get the chance. Wish I had pics of the last past lives of it but I don’t! 

So put me down for a Pete 359 wrecker rebuild..

OK, count me in for this one. As it works out, I will be using one truck for 2 builds. I am going to be building a replica of the Peterbilt 379 from Marvel's Agents of S.H.E.I.L.D. It is driven by Sarge (Clark Gregg) and is the truck that comes from another dimension to battle the Skrull. 

For the kit, I will be using the Italeri first issue of the 378 so I get the low sleeper to match the TV truck. The hood will be modified to create the 379 hood along with the cab lowering etc. 

The trailer I have not ordered yet, but will either be a Mobius or a old issue Italeri American trailer. It will be heavily modified to match the TV truck also. The easiest part of the built will be the paint, as the TV truck was done in flat black to give it a sinister look. The only chrome is the exhaust.

Jacobus  - really nice build your planning.  I havent done an Aussie truck before but eventually I'll add one ! 

Oldmopar- wow that's gonna be awesome  !! Especially easy paint scheme in flat black 

Counting down the days before kick off ! I so badly want to start another brockway plow,  but staying focused on the oshkosh

I think I've decided to do a Mack B815 logger.  Haven't decided if it'll be a trailer or straight job.......probably the trailer.  Too many ideas rolling around in my head.....someone make it stop!  🤣

That’s going to be Sweet Ben. If you need spoke wheels and the tires Dave at AITM has them drop him a email and he will fix you up

Okay at a major impasse on paint combinations for the Pete 359. Not being able to paint in this awful South Jersey weather causes me to get into an undecided mode about color choices. Below are the combinations I am on the fence about:

  • Brown cab, Orange frame
  • Yellow cab, Dark Green frame
  • Yellow cab, Red frame
  • White cab, Red frame
  • White cab,, Blue fenders, Dark Green frame
  • Red cab, Black frame

Any sugestions would be appreciated. Spring weather cannot come fast enough

I vote for yellow cab with dark green frame.

Sam,

Thanks for the reply. I am tending to lean that way as well. I just need to score some decals from the AMT California Hauler reissue to get the livery I want and also need to get a visor as well. Like I always say give Jerry some weather that is not paint cooperative and he'll change his mind more than a girl deciding on a prom dress.

The first V8 SuperLiner in Australia is my entry. 1/32.

Ben

Very good looking truck Ben ! Too bad it wasnt 1/25 cause I have a full set of spokes and tires from Aitm that I didnt end up using  !

Jerry - I would go the same color choice , seems I've been a bright color kick lately.  The yellow w green would be very attractive.
