Peterbilt 359 "Gold Big Pete

2 posts in this topic


Hello All,

First time poster, long time modeler. I saw the Peterbilt 359 Kit at Hobby Lobby last week and picked it up with the idea to build it like my uncle's. I usually stick to street cars and NASCAR. Never have built a big truck before. Two questions:

1) Any idea what colors the truck and stripes are? He said the truck was a metallic gold. (Found a Krylon Metallic Gold that looks close)

2) How on earth can I get those stripes correct with the silver/white (not sure what color) outlines?

Any help is appreciated. Thanks!


Here are links to the 1:1 truck I am trying to emulate.

Here are your pics - I cleaned them up a bit.

This 359 looks a lot like the Revell of Germany 359 kit.
