Jeff, I have just recently joined. Is it too late to enter? If not, I would like to enter my build of a Mack B61 dual drive and  Lindbergh fuel tanker in Shell livery. Let me know. Thank you.

I never refused entrants starting after the start date . Your definitely welcome to join us ! Your project sounds great. 

I did extend the build off til dec 31st because this lockdown mess  so theres extra time to complete the build

Hopefully this widespread shortage of Tamiya TS-29 semi-gloss black spray paint will end soon.  Can't seem to find it anywhere right now.   😞

I dont use it , I've been using krylon color max satin on several builds and love it . The Charmin Prostar is painted with it excellent semi gloss finish imo

My Prostar is on the way, along with the day cab from Dave.  Smooth side is still in a holding pattern...  Nice to know about the Krylon.

Jeff thanks also for the extension I know I haven’t gave any updates for months and I I know I’m probably disqualified but that’s ok I still want to finish my build I mostly joined for the fun to build with the guys.

Hello all hope everyone has been safe and well through the pandemic. I haven't posted since the Winter on any progress for my BRBO 2020 Peterbilt 359. Attached are some pictures of my progress up to this point. Installed a Cummins 350 in place of the kit provided Caterpillar powerplant. Made a winter front out of vinyl packaging from a comforter set that I painted in white. Also used AMT KW K123 baby Moon hubcaps as air horn covers. I painted the CB antenna's Testors light blue. Cab is Model Master Dark Sea Blue. The frame is Red. Used the kit provided decals. This may be the best truck I've ever built. Will need some final touches but I'm pretty pleased with it.
