Hello all:
I am looking for a scrap conventional truck cab (peterbilt/KW or similar) for a project. I don't care what kind of shape it is in, as long as I can salvage the roof.
I picked up the old Revell Military Wrecker, and I want to make it a hard-top like the ones we used in Canada. I figure the easiest route to go would be to modifiy an existing truck roof panel to make it work.
Thanks,

Like I said, I am going to modify the roof panel & rear pillars to fit on the 1/32nd scale cab.
I tried making one from scratch, and I don't know how much plastic I wasted in the attempt, so I figure if I try modifying an existing cab roof, I can make it work.

Thanks,

Actually I have a scrap 1/32 GMC General snap kit. You would have to fill in the mounting holes in the roof.

I might have a 1/25 Pete cab too.
