Peterbuilt Semi-Trailer by Dan Vadas - CARD - FINISHED


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

Another "quickie" - a free download of a Peterbuilt Semi-Trailer, which is virtually the same as a Kenworth. My Admiral's late son drove a white Kenworth, so I'm building this one for her in memory of him.

 

I found this as a free download on the same site as the Fender guitar. The detailing leaves a lot to be desired, but it isn't turning out too bad. I'm enhancing it a little bit (don't I always :D ).

 

I started with the trailer. The logo on it was from a company that doesn't exist in Australia, so I found a Coca Cola sign on the web, copied it to Paint, re-sized and re-coloured the red to match the trailer and printed it out :

I've added  acrylic "glass" to all the windows which were simply printed on :

Where I'm up to on the cab. Fuel tanks, air filters, mirrors and exhausts are still to come, along with some small details. Then it's a "simple" matter of a mere 18 wheels :D :

The wheels took longer to make than anything else, 2 days worth. I used my own method for them - the kit's ones were a terrible design :

I printed a 2nd parts sheet and cut out things like the air horns, clearance lights and tailgate hinges which I glued over the ones that were simply printed to the roof, tailgate etc to give them more depth. All the smaller details have been added and the model is FINISHED :) :

I still need to apply a couple of coats of gloss clear. I'll add a couple more pics when it's dried.
