Posted · Report post

We'll I finally finished the Peterbilt boom truck I started working before hurricane Wilma. Lots of scratch building went into this one everything behind the cab is scratch built The Tires are all custom made by a friend of mine. The trailer is a amt lowboy out of the box except the floor which I cut wood planks for and added a bit of weathering. The paint is Duplicolor dark blue. The engine is painted with tamiya brillant orange. The breathers and tanks are from Mo'luminum. Here is a link to all the pics http://www.modeltruckmafia.com/peteboomtruck.htm

That's my kind of model truck building! Could your friend be persuaded to tell us how to make those floatation tires? Nice! Dan

Sweeet 'Picker' Pete! Care to share some info or maybe some detail pics on the crane portion? I'd like to do a modern PB with a crane like this.

Well it looks like a commercially built crane, especially with the "Series 800" to make it look more official. I like the colors too. Dan
