Wink Peterbilt 387

There isn't any 387's that I could find in Australia to use as a reference so it is a bit of a cross breed, Part USA part Aust. Still got a bit more to do on it

Thanks guys for the encouragement.

To answer some of your questions.

Plow Jockey; Yes the tyres are low profile.

Big Ford; The body was another cheep RC toy from China.

Jetdog; China

Robby; It is RC, I will do a video soon. The body came from China a few years ago, the tail lights are scratch built.

Cheers Chris
