Peterbilt wrecker

Post by silverfox on Mon 09 Jul 2012, 8:11 am

This is my Peterbilt wrecker, older AMT kit ( hence old style tow gear ). built pretty much box stock. Tamiya orange and white paint, some bits Alclad, mesh added around exhausts.

Guilty as charged but mines the earlier issue with the small window and GM, after looking at this one I'm thinking I might use the back on the later California Hauler Pete I've got and build one up too, just save the small window to build as a bobtail.
