1/16th Scale Petrbilt 362

I purchased this Peterbilt 362 after market kit from Australia about 5 or 6 years ago. Combined with the Monogram 1/16th scale Peterbilt 359 it appears to build in to a good model. I will build it eventually. I also have three 1/16th scale engines. A Cummins NTC 350/400, Detroit Diesel 8V92N and a Caterpillar 3406 T/A. What is the proper engine for a prototype 362.

The Cat or Cummins would be the more logical choice, as these were very popular. The 8v92 really wasn't. and I'm not even sure they found their way into the 362.

For those that are interested, a 1/16th scale Detroit Diesel engine model is on eBay. Better hurry!

Ebay or search 1:16th 8V92N resin engine kit.

Odd, I never saw your question on the engine.. 362 could have any of the Cummins, Cats or Detroit of the day. V8's too.

362 was the solution to one-cab instead of 2 (352 and 352H) for the bigger engines and radiators.

Wow, it's been 20 years since Kuenn started his model building business! (Read that on his Facebook page.)

He has built alot of nice models over the years, cool! Those 1/16th scale models cover alot of shelf space.
