I have the wheels and tires from the Revell 379 Peterbilt kit. I was gonna put them on my dually but I don't have low profile tires lol. If you want them just let me know and we can talk about it

I used monogram 1/32 kenworth wheels on my 1/25 speccast f350 that i converted to a F550 dually. Not the best picture of the wheels or the truck though.

It started out lookin like this i broke the original wheels when i took them off though for the conversion and the f250 in the back

is done up in a shelby theme

Pretty cool project! Is the mis-matched bed intentional?

by mis matched bed you mean newer ford f 350 dually bed with a older ford single cab?

or are you referring to the 2nd bed that i "scratchbuilt" with just bed sides and leftover materials? pill bottle wheel wells...... wth mis matched blue/ red was intentional i tiik apart a glue bomb someone had gotten glue fingerprints all over the side of one bedrail, so i had spare regular non dually bed panels laying around i cut and spliced back together....... using all my parts/ materials here i try not to waste good styrene! :o
