Peterbilt 359 Car Carrier

Post by ProBee on Fri 20 May 2011, 10:45 pm

Hey guys, here is one I put together a few months ago. It was built from a old tow truck kit and the trailer was an old junkyard model I bought ages ago. I have customised all the suspensions throughout both the truck and trailer to lower it. Scratch built aluminium drop visor and front bar. Paint is by rattle can Byods Lime pearl and green pearl over gold base. I must say that this kit is a pile of crap, but if you are willing to do lots of cleaning modifications, repairs and scrounging for better bit, they are satisfying to build. I do build other makes of trucks, not just peterbilts, so more to follow soon.
