1/25 Revell Peterbilt 359 heavy haul

Recommended Posts

Hey all 

  Here are a couple of pictures of the 359 Pete, 3 axle drop nose lowboy trailer and the Cat D8H.

20200928_192724.jpgthe Cat D8H looks great sitting on the 3 axle trailer. I have the trailer pretty close to being done. I've started doing some drawings with dimensions so I can print them off to use for building templates. Some parts I'm going to try and 3D print. Stuff like - air cylinders, air bags, suspension components, hydraulic power pack, glad hands for air connections, electrical connectors, rear lights, etc.

Hey all 

  Here is a picture of the truck, trailer and 336 excavator.

Here is a picture of the truck, trailer and a ALL NEW!!! 390FL excavator.

20200907_201341.jpgnow thats a big S.O.B. it doesn't even fit on the 4 axle trailer even with the outriggers out. It's 20' 6" from the ground up to the tallest part of the boom arm. I guess I'm going to have to design a bigger trailer.😁 That's it for now be back with more soon.

Hey all 

  Well I said I was going to design a bigger trailer and I did!  It's a 3 x 3 x 3 Rogers 3 axle drop nose lowboy with 3 axle jeep and 3 axle stinger, and it is a llooonnngg beast! Here are some pictures of it.

20201008_181732.jpghere it is with the Cat 390FL.

20201008_181637.jpghere it is from the rear with the Cat 390FL

20201008_181543.jpghere it is from the side with the Cat 390FL. You see what I mean by being long!

20201008_181757.jpghere it is from the front with the Cat D11T.

20201008_181704.jpghere it is from the rear with the Cat D11T.

20201008_181609.jpghere it is from the sude with the Cat D11T. I know, you would have to remove the stick and bucket from the 390FL and the blade from the D11T in order to haul them. Well that's it for now be back with more soon.
