A 389 called Stacks

Recommended Posts

The owner of the real truck calls his truck Stacks. Here is my version.

I started with an Italeri 377, stretched the frame to a 295" wheelbase. The hood, cab sides, extra tool boxes and

bumper are resin from Spauldings (using my original pieces as patterns).

The sleeper was scratch built except for the front 1/2 of the roof and the front panel.

I modified the exhaust for the '08 emissions with DPF and dull piping.

I carved the headlights out of a block of plastic.

Tim,

Another great looking Pete. Is the hood a standard extended hood? It looks longer than the standard one.

Best Wishes

Dave
