Newsletter 611: Peterbilt Detroit Diesel

Peterbilt Detroit Diesel

Peterbilt Detroit Diesel
The Detroit Diesel Series 60 is a magnificent six-cylinder in-line diesel engine produced between 1987 and 2011 which was revolutionary on its beginnings because for the first time an electronic control system was fitted in an engine intended for road transport vehicles.

This mechanical heart was used in thousands and thousands of American trucks, which has led GP Modeling to undertake a scale reproduction of a complete and detailed engine designed specifically for the 1/24 scale models of Peterbilt series 377 and 378 trucks by both Italeri and Revell.

The product, made up of more than 30 parts, is printed with 3D technology (the parts are supplied with their printing brackets) and includes a decal sheet (not pre-cut) that reproduces the service labels of the different components. The recreated engine version is the 12.7 liter in DDEC IV (Detroit Diesel Electronic Control) configuration, which has the alternator and air conditioning compressor support plate on the right side.

At SpotModel we have no doubts: there is no longer an excuse for a closed engine cover on your Peterbilt!

GP Modeling has just surprised us with its new reference. A complete and detailed engine designed specifically for the 1/24 scale kits of the Peterbilt 377 and 378 series trucks. The transkit, made up of more than 30 parts, is printed with 3D technology and the parts are supplied with their printing support. Also included is a decal sheet (not pre-cut) that reproduces the service labels for the various components. The engine version reproduced in this transkit is the 12.7 liter (although the external dimensions of the engine block are practically the same as those of the 14 liter engine) in DDEC IV (Detroit Diesel Electronic Control) configuration, which bears the plate alternator and air conditioning compressor support on the right side (standardized version since 2002). There's no excuse for leaving your Peterbilt's engine cover open!
