Robert W Martel I bought one of these at the local Longs Drugs sometime around 2004-5. I don't remember exactly, but seems to me it was about $20+. I foolishly sold it (and some others I now wish I hadn't) a few years ago when I was doing woodworking. I think I sold it for $30? Since I got back into modeling about 4 years ago I've been wanting to replace it.
BUT, GEEEEZE the price has gone way up !! I see them go for $75, 80, 100 + all the time and I just wasn't wanting to pay that much. Well this one popped up on ebay with a BIN for $40+$13 s/h. The seller said "seems all there to me". For $40 bucks I had to take the chance. WELL,,,,, unfortunately there are parts missing the most important ones too. Part #s 236-242, the tow cradle parts, and barrel ends and some mounts. So, it's not going to be much of a TOW truck !! Otherwise it's just another Peterbilt 359, and I already have one. And no decals either!
I do see some decals for $10,,,,, hoping someone, sometime will be selling the parts I need for it.
Maybe someone here on scalemates might have these parts???
Oh well, it was worth the risk, I'll keep searching for spare parts. I did get lucky recently with parts for a kit I had. A 63 Imperial kit was missing the stock taillights. I just found a pair for $14. Sounds expensive I know, but I paid $100 for the kit a couple of years ago and the seller refunded me $25, so I guess I didn't make out too bad!
Anyway,,, another one I might get to someday. I have so many I've lost track anymore !! LOL

Colin Jenkins I,m a Newbie myself, Nice looking Peterbuilt 359 truck with Grain Trailer. AMT or Revell did,nt actually produce this trailer, though could adapt cut down Fruehauf 40ft Box Beaded side trailer to make this rig
22. August 2017 at 11:33:00
Sherman Yoder That's exactly what I'm planning on, I would need a lot of practice before attempting a full on scratch build of the trailer
22. August 2017 at 12:20:58
Tim Heimer What it's worth dept, the AMT products have better detailing than the Revell. The detail parts available on the market now days are so great I had to take another shot at building these great classics. Also I like the idea of the cut down trailer and then foil the sides. Best wishes
22. August 2017 at 12:31:33
Sherman Yoder Yeah I know the detail issues with Revell models. I wanted to build an example of a Peterbilt 359 from both companies. I'll probably use the tires from Mobius.
22. August 2017 at 12:52:31
Tim Heimer I'm not sure about the Mobius, are they supposed to be better? I've just doctored up what I had.
22. August 2017 at 13:01:07
Sherman Yoder I'm not sure if they are or not, but it beats the hard plastic tires that come with the kit
22. August 2017 at 13:29:25
Tim Heimer I could be mistaken but if I remember right you will have to get a different set of rims too, because the Revells go over the rim and not in it like the AMT.

22. August 2017 at 11:52:30
Sherman Yoder I might try to scratch build the box or use the box from the Ford Short Hauler
