Revell 1:25 Peterbilt 359 Conventional
Posted by Gregifur on Monday, January 30, 2017 8:07 PM

First I'd like to say thanks for welcoming me to the forum! My addiction will only grow from here. :)

This is my first in over 25 years, so be gentle. LOL

Complete left 3/4 view, sunlight

Head on

Rear view

Right 3/4 view with flash instead of daylight

Over all I'm fairly happy with it but I know it could be better. The full album of the build is linked for your viewing.

Enjoyed your build photos. I'd be happy to drive such a clean truck!

Hey, welcome to the gang! Great job on the tractor, there. I've never built one, but I'm a big fan of seeing them built.

Great subject and very nice job! I built something like that when I was a kid - somehow mine was covered in fingerprints ;)

I remeber those days. No patience at all, I just HAD to get it built whether the paint was dry or not. LOL. Great memories!

Excellent. I keep wanting to do one these. Love your choice of the color too.

Thank you for the kind words. I see that Monogram has released the 1:16 version of the 359. I believe that will be my next build after I've completed the 1:16 Kenworth currently on the bench.

I look at my side view mirrors and there's your truck coming up beside me!  That is one realistic, awesome, beautiful build!

You Know ;

 I used to build the models and drive the real thing . I still can't get over how overwhelming that grill is in a rear view mirror pose . Formidable ain't they ? Oh , Very nice job by the way . T.B.
