Well, to be honest with you, this don't really look too bad....You could use any of the Revell 1/25 scale 359 rigs and get with American Industrial Truck Models or P&P Resins for the hood and other parts...

I agree with JT, the Revell 359 would be a good base and then get with Eric @ P&P and get the conversion 389 hood, but to do the truck correctly, you need much more to go with it, and P&P has what you need. You would also need the Ultracab style cab, since that truck has one and is a larger cab found on the newer Petes, and you would also need the 2006 & up conversion parts such as the dash and steering wheel and interior door panels.

Wouldn't the Italeri Peterbilt 377 or 378 be a better starting place for the 389?
