Promoting Excellence in HO Scale Vehicle Modeling

Peterbilt 379 & Freightliner FLB86 - By Uli Heufs

Uli Heuf's latest projects include these two truck tractors, the Peterbilt 379 on the left and the Freightliner FLB86 on the right. Uli says that they are built from "parts from all known manufacturers" except for the Peterbilt's straight exhaust stacks which are made from cotton swab sticks. The inspiration for these models was Microscale's May Trucking decal sheet. Uli deftly combined the stripes from the decal set with his own color scheme to make one really striking paint job! The Peterbilt is from Wiking with a Herpa sleeper and many added details. The Freightliner is from Promotex/Herpa with an extended frame and Herpa Hi-Ab loader. We first showed these two models in Photo Gallery 41.
