Nice progress Roger are you building 2 PIE trucks ? 


At least 2.

In doing the research I have kind of fell in love with the company.

I have the rest of the year so hard telling what will happen.

I wish someone made the older freightliner shown in the pic from a previous post.

I’m hoping your weather allows you to paint this week I’m ready to see it painted. 

Me too!!!

It was probably warm enough today, but the wind was blowing 45.

I need to get another set of doubles, I cut one up for the drom.

Here is a mockup of the SD with one of the doubles.

Long over due up-date!!

The chassis are done except for the exhaust (the first time I have ever modified a wheel base).

Cab modifications are done (the first tine I have ever done that).

Two trailers done except for lights and decals.

Now the rub, I'm going to have to pause on this project.

The last several weeks have been a pain, major (unexpected) home and vehicle repairs have really spanked the wallet and I haven't had much bench or computer time..

I still need to get rivets for the cabs, more decal sets, another set of double trailers and various PE & resin items.

I'm working as much OT as I can get but I'm probably a month or more away from feeling comfortable enough to start spending on the hobby again.

I can still work on a few things, interiors, lights on the trailer, etc.

So I will up-date as I can.

Here are some pictures of what I have done.

Roger awesome progress on your project! You’re taking on 3 major truck builds at the same time and it’s your first time to extend a frame plus modify a cab you should be proud of what have done so far. You have all of them looking good. Looking forward to seeing more progress.

Well done so far! I completed a couple modified Freightliners last year. Did a day cab DD and a sleeper cab triple drive.

I should be back on track.

I have everything I need ordered.

I was doing some organizing a couple of weeks back and realized I did have another set of the double trailers.

I really didn't want everything to look the same, so I have been working on converting them to smooth side.

Just need the rivets and final paint.

Here are a couple of pictures.
