Peterbilt 379 'Blackened'
Peterbilt in 1:13, including 'see through' images.
About this creation


While listening to some old Metallica albums I got triggered to build a truck more or less inspired by the song ‘Blackened’. I have made something dark and mean already a few years ago in a smaller scale but decided to do that theme again. The starting point would be a 379 Peterbilt daycab with a very clean look and a lot of black. As a contrast I have used orange and white.



The emphasis of this truck lies in the cartoonish looks, and the detail which does not directly meet the eye. I decided to use some multi-layer Photoshop techniques to make some see-through images, where detail is made visible. I am quite pleased with the result.



The build itself is scale 1:13, approx 2400 bricks, and a mild portion of chrome. Some features are of course the steerability, detailed engine, air-ride and axle setup with diffs. This is also my first truck that has suicide doors that open the other way around compared to normal doors. Another feature is the cover plate on the rear part of the chassis that is removable.



This truck will be used to put on a flatbed hauled by another Peterbilt as a showtruck on display. It will be on display itself at Lego Fanwelt 2012 in Colgone, Germany.

These are all great models, do you follow your own instinct in imagining how the subject will look like and choosing the right Lego bricks for it or is there a basic assembly instruction book for any of these? If there is one out there for one of these babies could you let me know where it is located so I can get one and start building? Please. Thanks.
