ShakyCraftsman Posted August 24, 2020 Share Posted August 24, 2020 (edited) Hey all This is my Revell 1/25 Peterbilt 359 4 axle heavy haul tractor. I'm making this from the Revell "can do" wrecker kit. I started this by assembling the frame and suspension. I also stretched the frame a scale 2 feet so that I could add two extra tanks, 4 fuel tanks in all. I also added a step in between the two tanks on the drivers side. This rig will have Scenes Unlimited 10 hole Alco wheels, Bridgestone L375 445/65R 22.5 front floats, Bridgestone M710 285/75R 22.5 drive tires and Michelin "X" 445/50R 22.5 super singles on a lift axle. this view shows the frame. this view shows the frame and front steerable front axle. this view shows the frame next to the frame of my Kenworth W925 gravel train tractor. this view shows the whole thing just temporarily put together for pictures. view from the other side. another view showing the headache rack. view from the front looking aft. view from the rear looking forward. I have a aluminum fender kit that will cover all three rear axles. this figure is from the 1/24 Airfix Mosquito kit. I modified him by removing his officers hat and turnig it into a baseball cap. I also turned his shoes into cowboy boots. another view of the driver figure for this big Pete. this view shows the Pete heavy haul that I modeled up in NX 11 (Unigraphics). this view is from the aft looking forward. this view shows the rear of the rig this is a side view of the 4 axle Peterbilt 359. I also have a 3 axle 24' well Loadking drop nose trailer with flip up rear axle, a 4 axle drop nose trailer with flip up rear axle, a Caterpillar 336E excavator and I'm working on a Cat D8H/K and D8T bulldozer. These are modeled up in NX11 and I my be able to 3D print parts of them on my 3D resin printer. Since I modeled them full size I should be able to print them to any scale. Well that's it for now be back with more updates soon. Ron G Edited August 24, 2020 by ShakyCraftsman Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
