  1. The theme of this build is a farm truck that is nearing the end of it's service life and is no longer loved by the hired help. It is spring and the ground is muddy. I am satisfied with how the wooden sliding door and the "rusted" exhaust turned out, especially because the techniques used were a "first time" experience for me. The hood decals were a disaster and broke instantly while trying to get them in place, so I ended up having to paint the body stripes.

    AMT Peterbilt 352

    Sometimes you got to set aside a project and let it stew. ....So, what do you do? Start another truck. First up, the front axle and tie rod are pinned with small nails. Next, working to develop a concept for the build. On the paint board are several photos from the internet printed on glossy paper. Old trucker movies are also a good source of inspiration for those who want to capture the original colors of "their time". "Blue" on the right is giving me trouble finding the right color match. I will have to try custom mixing, but don't have any experience or feel for it. My first attempts have been unsuccessful. None of the box decals are ideal, so I will have to buy custom made ones or learn to make my own. Does anybody have a good source? Up next is the paint trial. I don't want to risk ruining the cab. A template of styrene sheet was made to mask the body and try my hand at pinstripes. 3 copies initially are made so that I can play with the technique and the finish coat sheen. A set of machinists radius gauges comes in handy.
