The Italeri or Revell of Germany Peterbilt 377 A/E kit can be transformed into a 1987-2003 378 SBFA or a 357 SBFA with a resin or scratchbuilt hood.  

Here are three examples that I have built. 

Each truck is configured differently.

The kit can be configured into about any Peterbilt with modifications, scratchbuilding and resin parts.  Some ideas include box stock; 48" stand up sleeper;  70" sleeper;  63" sleeper;  daycab;  resin hoods for 378 or 357; single drive; add tag axles; underframe muffler; fleet-spec with no chrome; scratchbuild hood and fenders for a butterfly hood 357; stretch frame and scratchbuild a custom sleeper; rework hood, fenders and front springs for a 377 SFFA; external air cleaners; rework hood and grille for a later year 385.     All sorts of ideas.  I have used the 377 A/E kit as the base for more than 14 Peterbilt conventionals.  I have many more planned.
