Thank you Paolo!

Some rivets on the cab were replaced due to their wrong shape.

Re: 1/24 Peterbilt 379

The shape of the cab mounts were further improved, and the fasteners were added.






The steering. This is what we have out from box.


This are the modifications.

Thank you NewTom!
The small update.
Have made the adapter between the cab and the sleeper. 1мм+1мм+0,5мм.

Re: 1/24 Peterbilt 379

Many works on the sleeper was done to correct inaccuracies.
















































Almost finished.

Also, I have changed a bit the wheel with oval holes and have created another one with round holes. Soon they will be printed.

Re: 1/24 Peterbilt 379

Not so much work was done in a physical object, just have added the holes to the front of the sleeper.


Some voids were eliminated in the rear suspension using epoxy putty.


But most of the work was carried out with the 3D-model of the tyre. It was received the better proportions.






And I began to create a relief of the sidewall.

Re: 1/24 Peterbilt 379

The rear hubs and drums from resin.






The front fenders.








The second fuel tank has received seams.


Some decals were bought.


The house for a wiper engine.




I have found a page from a brochure of a Caterpillar 3406 engine.


The engine kit I have bought is 1/25 scale. So, I have started to convert it into 1/24 scale.
