Peterbilt 359 RC 1:4 and Real Truck Show – Incredible Truck

So what do you get when you have one bored Italian dude, a love for big ass trucks, and some deep pockets? When those three things are combined, we get is one sweet project: a Peterbilt 359 1:4 Scale RC Truck show model.

First constructed the cabin out of lightweight fiberglass with the help of a wooden frame. He then used plastic polished in the right way to resemble chrome. After many hours and painstaking attention to detail, the cabin was ready and it was time to move on to the underpinnings.

Two 1.5 mm thick steel pipes were sufficient to create a sturdy frame that could withstand heavy weights. However, a truck, even an R/C controlled one, is useless without an engine – the more powerful, the better. Luca ended up using a 36-volt 750 Watt electric motor that drives the twin rear wheels via a sprocket-drive chain.

At 2.10 meters long and 180 kg (close to 400 pounds!), the scale model is anything but a toy. But as you can see in the videos, the power is enough to allow the little truck to pull a new Ford Mondeo Station Wagon with considerable ease!
