  1. The sleepers are all the Revell/Monogram kit sleepers. The larger is 48" size, made from two kit 36" sleepers. Tim
  2. If you go drom-box you might consider the popular-in-the-70's to have the exhaust recessed into the cab corners to allow clearance behind the cab. Tim
  3. Wonderful work on the plumbing and weathering ! Tim
  4. I'd say the kit was based on a straight rail aluminum frame. Tim
  5. That's looking really sharp! For the uninitiated, the M of 359M stands for "metal frame" a combination of steel rails and aluminum crossmembers (or vice-versa). A was aluminum, S was steel. Tim
  6. As mentioned above - tape inside the tank halves. The tool for the kit is worn out and the parts just don't fit anymore - so we have to improvise and make them fit. Tim
  7. Not the best at cornering, but it will get you there in a hurry ! Tim
  8. Odd, I never saw your question on the engine.. 362 could have any of the Cummins, Cats or Detroit of the day. V8's too. 362 was the solution to one-cab instead of 2 (352 and 352H) for the bigger engines and radiators. Tim
  9. hmmm, I thought I posted on this topic already.. Anyway - Nice work so far ! Tim
  10. The Legacy Class 379 series was an 'end of run' tribute package - available on any 379 configuration - any sleeper, Ultracab sleeper, low roof daycab, single axle, tandem, straight or tractor, etc. Special badging and options and numbered series badging 1-1000. The price all depended on how it was ordered - some dealers loaded them up and then loaded the price - others were fairly basic. The last of the Legacy Class 379 was a 127" with 70" sleeper and long wheelbase in red. The last of the 379-family to be built was a model 357. While the Legacy Class 379's were available, other 379's were being built that did not have the option package. Tim
