Posted (edited) · Report post

Hi all, This is pretty much my first semi truck builds. Well i did build one when i was like 9yrs old. Now 32 so its been awhile. That one i built, well lets say looked like a 9yr old built it lol. But Anyways here is my Pete 359 build as of right now. Nothing is glued yet, however i did do alot of painting last night. Got most of the Engine, chassis, suspension pieces done. Mind you its all brush painted, because for some reason i enjoy doing that more than just spraying. The body will be sprayed though. Anyways more to come

Thanks for looking :)

Got a little more done last night, I tried to weather the engine a bit, in person you can see it good, in the picture not so well. I used pencil lead dust to do it with. This is where i left off last night because it was 12:30am and i couldnt keep my eyes open lol.

Thanks for looking :)

Well i originally wanted this to be a Metallic Topaz Teal, but that didnt turn out to well. So I went with a testors One Coat Laquer Blue. So there is where it sits as of right now.

Looking good.

One thing to keep in mind, the pins that mount the grill to the hood can be a little long & they hit the radiator. This interferes with the way the hood sits when it is closed.

Ben, to piggy back Jim's comment.......I use a little bit of glue between the grill and hood and once it sets well, trim the back of those pins off flush for a good clean look on the inside of the hood.
