This is from the Peterbilt 389 Cobra Convoy collection.  I just built the tanker. I, as usual, made in half size. I made the tanker body out of one solid piece of pine (2 X 4) if I had not painted it, I would have made as per the plans. I added the decals, it only seemed to need some.

This was a fun project for me because I drove one of these while I was in the air force back in the ‘60s. Mine held 5,000 gallons of jet fuel. It was kind of like driving around with a big bomb hooked to your tractor but I made it through. Of Corse back in those days the tractor did not look this good.

As all way’s thanks for lookin’
