1/18 Team Penske-Sunoco Racing Trans Am Team

For those of you who follow 1/18 scale diecast, you have no doubt how valuable one of these sets is.



This is one of mine (I have two), this one has been opened for inspection, the other one has the original manufacturer's tape seals intact.

If you followed my Penske Hilton thread, you had to see this one coming, so here is Team Penske, loaded up with two 1969 Camaros, heading to the next Trans Am race.

We'll go through the separate pieces first.

This one is a custom trailer I just finished today, as I needed one to complete the display, but didn't want to decant one from the GMP set.  I took a standard GMP trailer kit, and repainted it with Sunoco Blue, and applied some decals from a Penske Eagle set.











Here's another custom trailer, created from an Ertl set which came boxed with a Dodge dually single-cab truck (this one was the Weil-McLain heating products version).







This, of course, is the Penske Hilton custom box truck that we just finished.







This is the ACME Ramp Truck (cab donor for the Hilton) in stock configuration.

And this is another ACME product, and '70 model Chevy pickup (this one is equipped with the TSM Sunoco Oil Products set).







And here they are, all together, just like it probably was back in 1969.
