357-123 and Michigan Special

The 357-123 was a flat-fendered, butterfly hood model 357. Here are some of my 357-123's.
First is a red 357-123 modeled after an all red 357 seen in a Peterbilt brochure from 1993. I built the model in 2006. I was never satisfied with the finish of the paint, so in 2016 I tore the model down and polished the paint and added stripes and refinished the fuel tanks with Spaz-Sticks Mirror Chrome (as well as corrected the visible seams in the tanks). The rear tires were swapped from 1970's AMT to period correct Italeri tires. The model was redone with the look of what the real truck might look like if still in use today. 5/20/16
