  1. This truck is killer! The truck seen in most (some added scenes used a 351 model of the same truck maker) of the 1971 action-thriller film is a 1955 Peterbilt 281, which Steven Spielberg selected because of the long hood of the Peterbilt, its split windshield, and its round headlights gave it more of a "face", adding to its menacing personality. Additionally, Spielberg said that the multiple license plates on the front bumper of the Peterbilt subtly suggested that the truck driver is a serial killer, having "run down other drivers in other states". (The above wording is taken from Wikipedia article on the film, along with the above screen-shot from the film "Duel") The LEGO MOC is obviously inspired by the villain vehicle (driven by an unseen psycho trucker) as featured in the TV production-turned-feature film, which was Spielberg's first feature-length film by the way. It also uses the truck in set 60079 (Training Jet transporter) as a general guide to the cab area. The rear portion will feature custom "FLAMMABLE" and "DANGER" stickers when built in real life. I've tried to make it as accurate as possible, with the AC unit behind the cab, sleek streamlined 1950's tanker design, spots for the afore-mentioned warning signs on the tank, and single exhaust pipe in black. NOTES: This MOC is going to be built this year, hopefully by next month or the one after that. Any thoughts on this model or it's accuracy? Comments, questions and complaints always welcome!
