Don't hold your collective breath, these are going to take some time. I have obtained complete untouched kits of each of the revell kits (or close enough) that I will be building alongside. The plan is to correct some of the kit's issues along the way, such as the hood hinges on the Petes, which don't open properly and the lack of limits or supports on the Kenworth Cabs, and it's going to be my first venture into alclad chrome too.
If I find I need to fabricate a part to fix an issue or replace missing parts, I will also be making my first forays into resin moulding. I really want to try and build something unusual from a couple of them, I have 4 standard Peterbilts, so I am planning to create a resin chassis for the triple axle version and the additional axles using some spare parts I have, mixed with some resin parts from the originals (ie extra suspension, wheels etc.
I also have in the loft the remains of the Revell car transporter trailer, which I believe I can convert and use as patterns to build a complete Cottrell transporter to take up to 11 cars.
In the stash is the rest of the Italieri Scania Wrecker that the wrecker body came from that will be reunited, the Scania Roadrunner tractor, The Revell Peterbilt fire truck (good extra spares source) 3 Revell K-100 Aerodynes, and 2 Revell Peterbilt 359s
Along the way, I am planning some ambitious stuff:
Alclad Candy over chrome
Alclad Candy over silver
Home made Resin parts
Silicone Tyres (The Late Revell Kenworths have perfect tyres, I want to try and make copies for all the fleet)
Custom printed Decals
Some LED lighting
Engine Detail up
Interior Detail up
Taking stuff apart and putting it back together
Fixing those busted axles
Chrome the original kit lacked (Lights, air stacks etc)
some scenery to display them on
It's going to take a while
