2006 1:64 Scale Show Truck

379 Peterbilt Extended Wheelbase 36” Sleeper

In Eloquent Lavender

Custom lettered BTS (Bontrager Truck Service)

Typical of my trucks, this truck is clean and tidy. For a cool ride less is always better.

Both the tractor and trailer represent rebuilding

Tractor Detailing:

  • The tractor was completely disassembled and rebuilt from the ground up.
  • The frame was extended by my normal method of sleeving the frame with channel with a soldered cross-member and also glued in place. This provides a nice clean frame, which is also as strong as the original.
  • Fatjack’s Cool Blade bumper, scale 20” tall. The hood fully tilts with my bumper.
  • The roof was completely shaved of all detail and smoothed out. Small glass-like marker lights to represent LED lights were installed to meet DOT regulations.
  • A custom-made visor was installed and painted cab color.
  • The straight stacks were lowered with Pickett-style lower elbows. The top of the stacks scale out to 13’-6” high. Notice that my lower elbows are cylindrical in shape, not flattened out from bending.
  • Front fender and stepbox mudflaps.
  • Full length stainless steel deck plate with airbox.
  • Contoured stainless steel rear frame cover with tail lights.
  • Stainless steel half fenders.
  • Standard rear mudflaps.
  • Scale size single CB antenna mounted on rear of sleeper
  • Air horn mounted under frame.

Trailer Detailing:

  • Trailer axles were lowered to sit closer to the trailer frame.
  • The rear axle was set all the way to the rear.
  • The spread is 10’-2”.
  • The kingpin was re-located to 24”.
  • The trailer was custom lettered for Bontrager Ranch Co.
