Anyone know what model this Peterbilt is, and whether it would have come from the factory as a 6x6 or is it an aftermarket custom?

Either way, this thing is a beast...anyone know what kind of front axle it would most likely have? It might be an interesting one to try and replicate in plastic...and resin...a whole lot of resin I would guess.

A lot of big trucks with driven front axles use a Marmon-Herrington unit. The center section is kind of weird and oblong, I can't think of anything similar in scale.

I'll have to get it out of storage and take a look, but I'm pretty sure that the Italeri D.A.F. Spacecab has axles that are similar in basic shape.
