Calling this one done......Finally!!!

Just a review.....started with the Italeri Peterbilt 377, added a resin raised roof and day cab panel from FGModels (off EBAY), aluminum exhausts (also off EBAY), shortened the chassis using the leftover pieces from my "Outlaw 379" and super single front rims and tires from KFS. Details include chassis and engine plumbing and wiring, CB radio and antennas, bug deflector from the 378 kit, rear deck and coiled air and electric lines.

The "Walker" milk tanker is almost completely scratch built using a piece of 2 inch PVC pipe, sheet plastic and Evergreen shapes. The suspension came from a "Lindberg" tank trailer and the wheels and tires are Italeri from the parts box.

The "Walker" logos and the "Hood" ovals are homemade. The rest are a combination of railroad decals and parts box leftovers and the ICC stripes are from the AMT Fruehauf flatbed.

Weathering was done with acrylic washes and powders....tried to represent a truck running down New York dairy farm roads in the late winter, early spring.

(Photobucket is not playing nice, pictures to follow.....maybe.

Great job. My dad drove something similar for 25 years after getting out of the dairy business. Obviously he didn't get to far from dairy and ironically had to get up at 3-4 am rather than the 5 to milk the cows. It brings back some good memories of getting to ride with him and going to the plant to offload. Thanks for sharing.
