Switching Gears - Peterbilt

Good Day Folks!

 

I scored a great deal on this kit, and was getting "stressed" on the Bell Helicopter build, so I decided to have a crack at a semi build. As you may know, I like to build all types of kits, after all, I am a styrene addict. I still have a few finishing touches, and details I want to add. This was built OOB, but I do plan on scratch building a trailer, and extra details.

Greg,

Beautiful build!! Got a question? Any idea why truck kits sell for such high prices? I have some 1/25 kits in a collection I aquired and it is unbelievable what some of them sell for!!!!! A Revell Kenworth dumper & tandem trailer recently sold for $229.

Here's a photo of my AMT 1/25 Peterbilt Wrecker. It was the first issue configuration of the kit from the early 1970s. It looks like we have the same taste in body color. Your American flag decal looks neat, but a following vehicle will never see it unless you use a lowboy or flatbed trailer.

 

Nice work so far.

Very Cool! I like the look of that wrecker, great job on the build. I will have to keep an eye out for that kit, I want to build a wrecker in the near future.
