Peterbilt Showtrucks
Showtrucks need to go to a custom truck show in style. I got some inspiration watching photos of the Mid American truckshow in Louisville, where the wildest showtrucks are carried in on flatbed trailers almost as pretty as the trucks themselves.
About this creation


The reddish brown tractor is a 1:13 scaled Peterbilt 379 daycab. It is a massive conversion from a truck i have build earlier on, the 'Eldorado' dumptruck. I removed the dumpbody, dismantled the chassis and lowered it. The chassis was then shortened and detailled and fenders were added. I kept the reddish brown-tan-dark gray color combination to make it look rather retro, or oldskool. A big contribution to this are the chromed old Technic rims. Once more i have arranged this with the 'plating on plastics' technology in cooperation with Bricklinker Bricks4all.They don't come any shinier, as it is real chrome.



The white truck is fresh and truly newskool. I wanted to base it on the 8880 rims which are not that suitable for a truck, but they look so cool. My aim was to make it clean and mat, like you see as a trend nowadays. It is not a simply thing though. The whole rig, also a daycab is heavily detailled including a chromed out engine and differential setup.



To combine it all i have build a Fontaine flatbed trailer with custom detail, like the fenders and bumpers. It is equipped with a wooden deck, and also the chromed rims seen on the brown daycab.

Congratulations!!. But I must say I have a double feeling about the chrome. Although it is without a doubt a realistic feature of such a showtruck, I find it almost hides the massive detail of the engine because to shiny. But hey, that is just my opinion, so please don't be worried.

I don't see how these trucks are so... NOT!!! These trucks are awesome! (Just how all your stuff is), they have an incredible amount of detail, I really like the engine on the white one. I don't know what you mean about the wheels don't work (your right they do look awesome), they work very well on the truck. Epic Job!
