Revell Peterbilt 359

Post by Leonidas on Thu 19 May 2016, 8:25 am

This is the Revell Peterbilt 359 snap kit, or at least my version of it. A great kit to build, especially for someone that hasn't even had time to sit down at the bench for a couple of years (me). Anyway, there are a few changes from stock including the decals on the doors (from the AMT California Hauler kit). I ditched the Revell supplied wheels and tires, replacing them with ones from Moebius. The headlights were donated to the cause from the AMT TeeVee Dune Buggy. I added BMF, stripped much of the chrome replacing it with Testors Metallic Red to match the body and gave the engine some detailing with different gauge wires.

Overall, I am quite happy with how it turned out, hope you fellas like it.

Cheers.

Well done Leith;
I must admit.....I do like the new snappers,....only for the cabs, and engines. The chinese certainly have it over the old Monograms kits for the detail on the kits.
Nicely put together; love the old skool headlights.....Next?
A old Mt Gambier boy and......You could'nt find an Australian flag for the back...?

Good point Clea, I'll look at doing that next time! doh aus

It was definitely a fun build. I have a couple more in the stash, but for right now I have an old AMT Freightliner SD that I'm going to try and build. See how I go...

Thanks for the comments guys, I appreciate it.
