Peterbilt 377 A/E from TURKEY

Hello to all Truck Kit lovers from Turkey :ok:

This my first posting to this site and because the language is German I am having difficulty in translating all these words into english. I am using Altavista during the translation. There may be mistakes in my first message but I will try to do my best to show you my last builded truck Peterbilt 377 A/E
First of all I am really a Truck lover. When I was a child I used to visit Truck Garages to see all beautiful vehicles and try to touch them. As I grew this became a hobby for me. I tried to buy their kits although there is not much in my city.
2 years ago I began buying truck kits from ebay and I met the most helpfull and kind person HEINZ from Austria. He really helped me a lot and I bought many of my truck kits from him. A already have 45-50 Truck kits in my stocks. Most of them are waiting me to finish all but I prefer making them in a long time period :lol: :lol:
Peterbilt 377 A/E will be my first model in this site and as soon as finish the MAGNUM truck I will also post it.
I tried to use my electronic knowledge on this kit and decided to put lamps to all over. :cracy:
First of all I travelled lots electronic shops to find out the smallest SMD led. Then I had to search for a thin cable with a professional soldering staiton. SMD leds are so small to see, so I had to buy a lamp with a lens. As you can see 1 model kit caused me to buy to many items :baeh:
Now everything was ok. I attached the cables to the leds. Drilled up the places where the cables will pass. Because its impossible to open the glued parts, I shoes the highes care while soldering the cables. If one breaks then all lights will off :idee:
It took 2,5 months to finish up all these work. I am very pleased with it and hope you also like it. I do not want to use much space in my first message because you may bore :rot:
Now let me attach the pictures and let me know what you think of it.

Hello :wink:

I have an airbrush & compressor with all the colors but I prefer using TAMIYA spray colors on my models. This one is TS-19 Metallic Blue. I also applied 3 coats of TS-13 clear varnish on it. After all these processes I applied a model wax to add a perfect look :ok:
Sprays are expensive and they are unable to be use inside the house. When I paint something with a spray, the floor becomes the same color with the truck :cracy: so I use to paint the parts under the apartment ;)
The SMD leds that I used on this truck are special ones that we have in our cell phones. They are really adding a nice view to the model but the only disadvantage is not all of them works with 1 AC adaptor.
I had to use 3 adaptors to light all up.
