1:50th Scale Peterbilt 379 in Superior Industries Livery

Peterbilt 379

The 379 prime mover is configured with day cab, short wheelbase chassis and sprung loaded pusher axle which can be locked into the raised position. The fully detailed fifth wheel is adjustable and slides back and forth on the chassis with a sprung operating latching mechanism to lock the trailer kingpin. The cab features a fully detailed interior which is visible through the clear windows and opening doors. The roof has mounting locations for two designs of air horn, both of which are supplied in the box along with two sets of door mounted wing mirrors. The bonnet can be opened revealing a fully detailed engine compartment with detailed engine block and radiator which is just about visible through the etched mesh stainless steel front grill.

Superior TS150 TeleStacker with Peterbilt 379

The rear of the cab features a headache rack with chains, binders and lights authentically reproduced and is finished off with the addition of a folded tarpaulin sheet for that extra bit of realism. The rear fenders have detailed diamond plate pattern with flexible rubber mud flaps and tool box and authentic air and electrical lines have been added which can be connected to the trailer. The tractor is finished with side mounted hollow chrome exhaust stacks and chrome fuel tanks on each side of the chassis while die-cast wheels with authentic rubber tyres, complete with Michelin tread pattern finish off a highly detailed replica. The model is a great match to the T150 Telestacker model as shown above.
