Scale I Build

  1. This is my rendition of the Peterbilt Fire Truck in 1/25 scale by Revell of Germany. The kit represents a real pumper and my version is a bit closer to the real deal than the OOB would be. If bulit per instructions, the hood would open just a little because of the sirenes on the bumper. I placed them on a tilt panel with a piano hinge just like the real one. I also changed the engine and transmission as the real pumper is powered by a turbocharged Detroit Diesel and Allison automatic. This was followed by a change in the cab where I replaced the gear stick with a shifting column. I added some
  2. Nice re-release from AMT. Over 100 chrome parts alone! Great tires as always too. This is the very first fire truck kit I've ever owned, pretty impressed with all the parts and detail. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4xe7ZN-Nkxw PS, does anyone know why linking to YouTube videos doesn't work anymore? I go to insert the media link using the icon at the bottom right "Insert other media" and it just spins and spins nothing. Been like that for weeks now.
  3. Well, this one is finally done. I finished assembly last night by mounting the Federal "Q" siren to the hood and sent the truck to Owensville for mutual aid standby today. There was a lot of scratchbuilding that went into this build, and I can't even think of half of it. I know that I superglued 200 scale feet of 1 3/4 in hose (1/8 inch flat elastic) for the each crosslay, 50 scale feet of 1 3/4" hose in a roll for the front bumper, 200 scale feet of 4" hose (1/4" flat elastic) in the middle of the hose bed, 150 scale feet of 5 inch LDH (3/4 inch yellow electrical tape)
