Very nice and extremely clean, is it a kit or did you do some scratchbuilding?

I used the Monogram 1/16 Peterbilt 359 kit as a start and scratchbuilt the wrecker body and boom. It's loosely based on the little Stepp's Towing 1/25 kit.

At 1st I thought this was the "Stepp's" wreaker, you can certainly see the influence, this must be HUGE, considering how big the "Stepp's" is, very nice build.

Thanks! It has a regular kit engine. I usually don't go too crazy on underhood details as no one really ever sees them and if I showed them to anyone they probably wouldn't even know what I was talking about anyway. :lol:

Thanks! The original 1/16 kits became more scarce and too expensive so I quit doing customs, but with the reissued Peterbilt (and soon Kenworth) I'm in the planning stages of doing an even bigger wrecker. I don't have any particular affinity for tow trucks, they just seem a little more challenging than a standard road truck. I'll admit I was a little disillusioned when I found out recently that that other guy was taking credit for my customs, but I still want to do another project. :)
