    How do you display your rigs?

    I don't necessarily display mine but I do keep them stacked neatly in display cases that I buy at Hobby Lobby. The display cases keep them safe, secure and darn near 99.99% dust free which keeps me from having to wash them. They stack nicely on top of each other. I have the tires chocked with pieces of stick-on house door weather stripping. That keeps the models in place and keeps them from shifting during transportation when I show them at model shows. I believe the measurements for the case I buy at Hobby Lobby are roughly Length 15-3/4 x W 7-1/4 x H-6 1/2. So far they've worked great for conventional trucks both 1/24th and 1/25th scale but I have had a couple COE's be just a tad bit too tall for the case.

    Peterbilt 378-119

    Finished this model in 2018. Full credit to my buddy Rob Evans for his idea of the Mackinac bridge background and for taking the photo. Funny thing is, I know have sand forever stuck in the gr ooves of the tires.

  5. Thank you sir, just a personal project.
  6. This is the Italeri 378-119 Classic Peterbilt model. Eventually I'm gonna add on some fulll sized rear fenders 'cause the back end seems like theres something missing with just the quarter fenders. Unfortunately the paint won't match cause testors decided to stop making Fords Whimbledon White. Oh well, I'll get creative. Tried my hand at installing real wood flooring, I think it came out nice. Used balsa wood, took a torch to it and sprayed it several times with acrylic top coat. Personally, I like the rubber booties I made from plastic stock coming out of the firewall with the electrical lines. Tadaaa, done for now.

    Great job. CB attached to the interior roof was a nice touch.
