Peterbilt 567 Heavy Haul
Using a Newray 1/24th scale toy Peterbilt 579, I reworked the hood into a 567.
This chassis is an Italeri Peterbilt 377 with modifications. Front wheels are resin from Mo'Luminum. The DPF box is from AITM.

This isn't 100% finished - it is missing a few bits and pieces and a few things need to be reworked.

Built January 2017

BJServices Crane 378
Using an Italeri Peterbilt 378 (early 2000's issue), a MonkeyClaw resins sleeper roof and a sleeper from the 377 kit cut down as well as a scratchbuilt chassis and flat deck. This build is based on a BJS truck seen at the Gaylord, Michigan yard 10 years.

Resin wheels from Kit Form Services. Resin rear tires from Mo'Luminum. Metal mesh grille screen from PlanoModelProducts.
I dirtied this up, I'm not sure I like the effect - I think I went overboard on the bug splatters.

SuperValu Foods Ford
Another truck I remember seeing around Munising, Michigan in the 70's - Ford Louisville Line fleet tractors for SuperValu Foods. My build uses the AMT Ford LNT-8000 with a resin long hood from Plaskit as well as fuel tanks from Plaskit. The spoke wheels are from an AMT Chevrolet Titan/90 kit. I painted this in the summer of 2011 for winter building - on the bench in January 2012 and finished May 18, 2012.

Schlumberger-Dowell 357-123
Peterbilt 357-123 - Scratchbuilt hood, fenders, equipment box, frame. Resin wheels and tires. Built in 2006.

This is one of those models that I never got around to taking any outdoor photographs of.

So, 10 years after it was built, here it is in the light of day.
