    What Cat engine is in this White Western Star?

    That is what I would like to know. Is it a Caterpillar 3406 engine? Anyone know for sure?

  5. Thanks, think I will try another way.
  6. Thanks! The outside curved corner frame itself was 3D printed. I got it from a guy on eBay that was making them for big custom sleepers. I asked if he could make one much longer. He is still active, but he hasn’t listed those frames in a long time. The rest of the framework, along with the floor, sides, roof, etc, was scratch built.

    Is that a 3406 ?
  8. How did you make the framework for the camper on the back of the truck? By the way fantastic build!

  10. Nice to see you got the Mack. I picked that kit up a while back, but haven’t started it yet. I’m thinking a beat-up old roll-off truck would be a good plan for the one I have. I didn’t get any hobby items, nor have I ever received much in the way of hobby items as gifts. That’s ok, I never ask for any hobby items, and I get plenty of other useful things, I can’t complain. One related item was an excellent book called Peterbilt - The Evolution of Class by Warren Johnson. Great history and model info up to about the year 2000. My tastes have always been very specific in regards to kits, and it would be difficult for my family to locate stuff that’s not say, on the shelf at Hobby Lobby. Besides, I wouldn’t want them to pay more than they should (though in regards to Hobby Lobby, 40% off isn’t bad). A gift certificate to Model Cave or Moluminum would be good, but they wouldn’t want to just give a gift certificate for Christmas. My wife mentioned that I should make a list of stuff I like on Amazon (she did, and I must admit, it made shopping for her very easy this year). I’m reluctant to put hobby stuff on there, and though I haven’t really looked on Amazon for hobby stuff, I’m thinking the prices probably wouldn’t be great, would they?

    I like them all, but that Ford really stands out. Beautiful design, perfect color, and that super clean trailer just makes it all "pop".

    15.8L Caterpillar 3406E Custom Reman

    Thanks guys for all of the compliments. I’ve since modified the scratch-built alternator, making it a bit shorter. I was going for a larger than standard size, but it was too large and too close to the intake piping. It looks much improved. I plan to start the chassis this weekend and it’ll get more detail/parts added when it is put between the frame rails.
  17. All well worth the extra effort ! A beatiful build on its own. I am currently building a turbo charged DD Silver 92 from 1979 . I will post pics when done, Those engines came in white, black or silver. I have done one in silver previously, maybe black for this one? The exhaust has orange flames I am trying to replicate. The Cats c olors are spot on. Love the valve covers.
  18. Got my issue Saturday. Thanks Lee ! looks good, Merry Christmas and to everyone I wish a better new year !

    Damned shame that has to be covered up by a hood.

    Ford Snow plow truck

    Swweet ! i was looking for those. I know the re-issue is out-but nice to see the old school instructions. If i remember correctly they were in a neat booklet and very detailed. I hope AMT has kept them close to original. Really want AMT to reissue the original brown and white "international truck show" Peterbilt 359 with the sleeper. It was so much better then the california hauler in terms of detail and buildability, but after all these years the molds might me lost of damaged. Keep on truckin !
  22. Hmm haven't received it yet, perhaps he is sending them out in waves ?
  23. im just wondering if any one had photos of them thank you
