Paul Kittle's H0-trucks
« on: May 26, 2019, 01:51:47 AM »
I offered Paul Kittle to post here pics of some of his very nice H0-trucks:

Ford LTL9000 - the cabin is one of his own castings, the trailer is by Shapeways



GMC General - the cabin is one of his own castings, the trailer is by Lonestar Models



Peterbilt 379 - Paul built this truck tractor modifying a 389 by Tonkin, the trailer is by Trucks N' Stuff



Western Star 5700EX - the cabin is a resin castig by Dwain Currie, the trailer is by Trucks N' Stuff

nice job on the little rigs, I really like your choice of striping for all the projects, they look authentic this way! Nice mods to the Tonkin Pete to get that 379.

The LTL9000 and the General are both really cool. 8)
I agree with Jim, the stripes really look nice.

Here is the latest one from Paul, he sent me pics of his re-worked Lindberg Ford CLT9000 and it looks great!

he chose the "soft fan" factory paint scheme for his build and mated it to an Athearn (I think, ex Milespost?) 40 Fruehauf trailer

Another update here, Paul sent me this progress collage, interesting as it shows the work that was actually done to get the "new look" Ford CLT 9000



I didn't realize so much had been done till you see the pics, very cool!

Paul's latest truck, a Kenworth Aerodyne 86 with a 96 inch Double Eagle Sleeper. He started with two 108 inch Promotex Aerodynes, cut down to make the Aerodyne 86 plus, replaced the square head lights with round head lights to represent the K100 C model as well as new grill with a better looking Gull Wing Bumper. The sleeper was scratch built,.

Awesome build Paul, looks stunning, love the round right back-date and the colour scheme is fitting, right from the posters of days gone by!!

Paul's newest truck: The GMC General with the "Generals Quaters" sleeper from Smokey and the Bandit 2. He used one of his 116" Generals castings and a scratch built sleeper, it is on a stretched Promotex chassis since it already had a Reyco suspension, scratch built fuel tanks and battery box. The trailer is a Promotex 48 foot Moving van that he removed 3 scale feet to make it the period correct 45 footer, removed the lower Drom boxes and added doors to both sides , and added promotex Low profile tires,
