Custom Lonestar Wrecker

32 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

Well here is the start to my next build. An extended Lonestar with a Peterbilt wrecker body. So far I got the interior almost done. Took the bed from the re-released Revell Peterbilt 359 Wrecker as well as the shifter. Photo Etched parts from CZW. Some resin parts from Ben for the make shift kitchen. Still trying to figure some stuff out. More to come soon.

I really like using a decal for a bedspread.

Thanks for the comments guys. You can't tell, but the bedspread/ blanket is actually a picture that I just shrank down and printed it out on my printer.

Well here is a little progress. Finished extending the frame and got it painted. Took part of the Revell 359 Wrecker frame and part of the Lonestar frame and combined them. It looks blue in the pictures, but its purple. Also got the tanks painted white with purple straps. Started on extending the cab and the wrecker body. More to come soon.

Got started on the hood. It looks real shiny with the wet look clear from Testors

Just a little progress. Started on the boom part. Also the doors to the outriggers looked plain, so I put a couple of murals on them.

Whatever model I build next. I had a Lonestar, but had to sacrifice it for the extended cab.
