This started as the red Malibu Freightliner Classic XL in HO scale.



I changed the sleeper from the Able body Co. walk in sleeper to the Freightliner factory "condo" sleeper. I added mirrors from Plano and decals are from A-Line, along with the trailer. The paint is a custom mix with a metallic additive.


This is a miniature version of my last owner operator truck, before my retirement.


The images in that order show:

Nice work on the conversion. I like all the little details that have been added, front fender mirrors, wheel guards, Windows and the new shape of the sleeper. Good job.
