Most of my models are 1/24 or 1/25th scale based on commercially
produced kits from AMT, Revell, Italeri and others that I modify with
new cabs, hoods and bodies. I utilize many aftermarket resin casters
for parts and detail items. The majority of my builds are Peterbilts
but I do build other makes so I don't burn out on my favorite.
Red Oval Obsessed
Welcome to the home for my model truck and Peterbilt collection!
I've had a fascination, no, obsession for all things Peterbilt since my family bought me
an AMT Peterbilt California Hauler model kit for Christmas in 1970.
I've had the pleasure of visiting the old Peterbilt headquarters in Newark, California in 1975, the former Madison, Tennessee plant in 1976 and the Denton
plant in 2005 and am honored to be part of the Denton open house each year with a large display of my models inside the factory.
This site showcases my model truck hobby and my photograph and truck material collection. You will find plenty of reference material for building scale model Peterbilts and a few other brands too. The buttons at the upper left take you to various pages of models, reference photos and photo albums.

Are you a former Peterbilt Motors Company employee or employee of a dealer with Peterbilt memorabilia from days gone by?
Be it brochures, nicknacks, photos, buildsheets or other items and you'd like to share your collection or are looking to dispose of it - Myself or Rick McClerkin are offering our services to scan your printed and photographic material to share with other Peterbilt fans.
It doesn't matter how old or tattered, the idea is to save the material for future reference.
If you are interested in having your Peterbilt material live on, you can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or Rick at email@example.com or http://www.thekeepintouchlist.com/memorabilia.html
