Peterbilt 359 Classic in 1:13
About this creation
My first build of 2012, a classic Peterbilt 359. This is a Lego model build in 1:13 scale. I wanted to keep the color scheme simple but efective. I love the dark grey which i started to use last year. I used some new techniques on the chassis and air suspension, and tried to bring the detail to the next level on the engine and drivetrain.



Another new detail is the flip bumper on the front, to keep the truck low when the strees are bumpy. The model consist of about 4000 bricks, where some were retrofitted with chrome plating. The wheels are since many years out of Lego production. The ones on this truck have been in my posession since 1984.

Love the truck man, nice and shiny! The butterfly detailed chrome engine is probably my favorite part; does LEGO make all those parts in chrome, or do you have to paint some of them? I really need to try a truck, not on this scale, but on my normal Minifig scale so 10 wide (+mirrors).

Hey, BricksonWheels MOC, long time no see. Anyway, you outdid yourself with your latest work. This is how you should build a truck! You do to Peterbilts what my new friend Sephirot8082 MOC does with Kenworths, namely, you make them both look awesome in LEGO form. You two will probably get along very nicely here and learn things from one another as you continue to build things on MOC Pages. Why not give him a shout out on some of his creations, please? Thank you.

Mmmmm, shiny! I can't comment on the accuracy, but it looks magnificent - you obviously went to a lot of trouble with this, and it shows. Great detailing, and the engine is spectacular. Well done!

Thnx all for the very nice comments. Some from my side: @Patrick Star: Your volvo is very nice, and the load is as realistic as it gets :-) @Mike F: The weight should be around 5 Kg. @Joost Cump: The chrome is indeed the touch of realsim on this one. But pimp lovers should not lose faith either :-) My next build for the European Modelshow 2012 will be very pimpy :-). @Max Cad: You are absolutely right. To be honest i have been distracted on this. I looked at the engine pictures of an early 80's 359 as inspiration, but that one was retrofitted with a new firewall and hood as well. Accidently mine became a retrofit then too :-) @Luke Vosburgh: I like the double fenders as a custom trend. As in pure scale the wheels should be about a stud closer to eachother, but as with Lego, not everything is always possible 100%, especially if you want to keep the looks.

This is very cool and I think that if you put the back tires closer together that it would look better and take out the flap between the two in the back! All in all great build!

This is certainly one of your better mocs. or in short sentences: oh wow, this is fantastic! The chrome parts don't overwelm the moc anymore. That is, in my opinion, a very good evolution. keep on moccing!!!
