Here are couple of Peterbilt 378/357 set back front axle hoods I made from the Italeri/Revell 378 hood.

Hopefully it helps you on making your hood.

Wonderful mix of two kits and scratch building. I like it a lot. SBFA will look good on this one.

sorry for the late reply, the resin parts are by "F G" model, bought through ebay, just search resin and they should come up

cant wait to see more progress with this unit. the sides on the front legs is something I've really only seen on European wreckers. does this mean its going to be right hand drive?

thanks everyone for the positive comments

no, it will stay as an American truck, I did find a picture on the net of a kenworth with the same body style, so ive sort of based my build on that, although it features a century boom, whearas mine uses the "can do" boom wich is a challenger boom, but theyre both owned by miller industries as are Boniface engineering who originated the Front Pivot stabilizer system.
