hi all this is an odd story my cousin peter had broken his leg some years ago and his daughter got him this revell peterbilt conventional 359 i think kit and he built it and never painted it well we all got into boats and he used some of the wheels for fenders so tattered and a shadow of its former self i asked if i could have it well 4 days before the rocky show peter said i could have it so i went to work "tricking" it out id watched trick my truck and thought they did some cool stuff so i thought ill so something to this truck it was missing wheels so i got some 1/18 scale wheels to immitate super singles give a wild paint job and see how i go at the model show....i pulled out 2nd with this god knows why, but since this i have bought 3 truck kits and one exactly the same that will get done with the proper wheels on it haha. so this is the peterbilt that my cousin peter....built and that i had to pull apart clean, paint and modify

I reckon those low profile tyres would give a rather harsh ride, but it does look mean and nasty that way. I love the stories behind some of the builds on the forum - it makes the model much more interesting. Nice work mate!
