LoneStars are pretty rare here in New York, too. Only see a couple on the road.

Czech Truck Models makes a nice LoneStar P/E set & chassis parts

Jim, for some reason, first time I've read your first post, the picture didn't load. Only now that I've seen the purple beast - and it looks fantastic! Moebius should pay you dividends for convincing me to buy this truck!

I had a look at the PE frets. Very, very tempting! At least the fret with pre-painted dash panels and the exhaust shields are amazing! I just hope my budget has enough elasticity to engulf that one too. THanks for the link!

I used CTM is June and had the WFT sheet to my house in 2 weeks. About to order more for the VN kit.

You weren't imagining things, Gabriel. I add the photo later. You're welcome for the link.

Ryan, I have the VN P/E kit, and it looks really nice.

Wow, Jim, that looks great! I'm interested in the Moebius Prostar, may get that at some point.

Thanks, David. I have the ProStar in the stash. It looks like a really nice kit as well. Very similar to the LoneStar kit with a different hood. Much more of a fleet truck. I don't know about New Hampshire, but they're all over the place here in Central New York.

Thanks for the explanation Jim as I thought the same thing as Gabriel. I just ordered the pe sets plus Jan book. I liked Vol 1., I am sure Vol 2 will be as good.

Between Western Express and many other companies around here, Prostars are everywhere you look.
