Promoting Excellence in HO Scale Vehicle Modeling

Very Heavy Duty Peterbilt 362 - By Ralf Grote

This is another of German modeler Ralf Grote's imaginative creations that he builds based on North American prototype vehicles. Ralf began his very heavy duty 12x8 truck tractor with a Promotex/Herpa Peterbilt 362E and made extensive modifications including Kibri chassis, wheels and axles from Herpa, plus tubes out of brass around the axles so that the axles fit within the Kibri axle bearings. "Heavy haul towers" are from Herpa and Kibri. Decals are from Truckline Decals and Pen Bay. Fuel tanks are from AWM and windshield wipers are from an old Herpa Euro model.
