Emissions - Tim style

Here's my first attempt at the 2011 Peterbilt emissions box cover. This is a new design that appears on trucks equipped with the DEF tank (Cummins and P'car MX engines for 2011).

The box is made from Evergreen sheet plastic, hexagon rod and Plastruct HO scale diamond tread.

Here's the real box on a '11 389.

Here is what my box will go on

Update 2/1/11

I painted the box with Duplicolor Bumper Chrome

Thanks for looking!

Attached are several pics I used for inspiration courtesy of Wes Bergman.

Looks pretty convincing to me! So, will that have a Detrotpiller in it?

Tim hi,

When I saw your last pictures from Denton and reallized the new DPF box, I though that it is very ugly. I don't like it at all.

Your attempt to scale it down is very - very good. Do what you have to do in order to be casted in resin!!!

The 389 is awsome!

PS: What exactly is the order code of the plastruct diamond tread plastic sheet you are using? Can the same be used for the traditional battery/tool boxes?

Kostas.

Answering two here:

Kostas,

I'm not a big fan of the new box, but hopefully it will grow on me.

The Plastruct part number is #91687 Catalog number PS-155.

The tread pattern doesn't match Peterbilt's pattern. The PB pattern has more hash marks than the diamond.

Charles,

Why the dump box? Here's the inspiration

Mine will be slightly different and fancier.

Thanks for showing the new stule D.P.F. box Tim. I am getting ready to start a 2011 367 and I am going to have to build one of those too as well as the little tiny black tank for the fluid.

If you want to see excellent execution - take a look at the T800 Doug Walker is building - his DPF (KW style) and DEF tanks is beautiful!
