1/16 Scale Pete Wrecker

Recommended Posts

Built this one in about a month and a half....It's 98% done....Just got to finish the light bars, but it's done enough to post a few pics, though...

This one looks MASSIVE! I used to have this 1:16 Pete as a teen. Nothing to do with this one. You have done an impressive job, nice detailing, nice new parts, love the paint!

Thanks, Guys for your kind comments about my truck...I appreciate them....I wish I could build an RC model of this one, but like you said, Dave, that would just break me...And, no, Charles, the lights do not work.....As it was my first attempt at a 1/16 scale model, I kinda wanted to see it completed quickly, so my ambitions were not that high....But, once again, I appreciate all of you...

It was about a month and a half....It helps when you have a lot of styrene plastic around....Not afraid to make mistakes....

Went to a plastics supplier and picked up two 4' x 8' pieces of .060" styrene for like $20 a sheet and I've still got A LOT left....And I eyeball a lot of stuff...To me, if it looks right, it is right...Thanks for the interest, Doug...

A couple shots of the boom extended...A little bit, anyway...I didn't want to break anything...

That is correct...With my latest 2 trailer builds, this wrecker, the Allied Vans truck, and one more Pete race rig I'm working on, I just finished off the first 4' x 8' piece...I love it..There's gotta be somewhere in AZ that sells plastic...I found this place, here in Houston pretty easily...Look for a place that makes signs and ask them where they get their plastic...I about lost my mind when they sold me that much plastic for only $20 a sheet.....I'm going to get some more, tomorrow, Lord willing....

And thank you guys...I appreciate the viewing and comments...

Superb build and great skill. I like the colour they look right.

Thanks, Dave...Seen some of your work on Fotki...You've got some nice stuff....Can't say I'm a huge fan of Albion trucks, but your builds are superb...You guys should check him out... :) There's good stuff in there...
