PIE Tanker

Built in 2001 and 2002 using an early resin cast copy of my 351 hood (Griffen Designs casting), Clint Freeman headlamps and RNK wheels and tires. The PIE decals were available from Spaulding Trading and Shipping back then.

My 351 is built on a junker chassis and a glue bomb cab. This was built long before I wet-sanded and polished my paint work.

In September 2016, I treated the model to a subtle polishing of the paint to smooth the orange peel, as well as repairing some damage that occurred in 2008 while enroute to Denton, Texas to the Peterbilt plant for my first model display at Peterbilt. I repaired this model, as well as others inside the plant, so you could say, this model was built at Peterbilt.

After the clean-up and repair, I treated the model to a coat of grime and filth to give it a period-correct "just back from a long hard run" appearance.
