I don't know of any Peterbuilt tractor.

I only know if these: http://www.tamiya.com/english/rc/rcitem/kit/kit56301.htm

I know of a guy in SC the does truck out of wood. Tractor and trailer. You would have to give him a photo of both.

Sorry.

I race with someone locally who also has a Tamiya 1/14 truck. He purchased the extra control unit which includes light, sound, and motion controls (truck rocks when you start the unit & idle). The truck is very realistic (but I'm sure it is expensive).

Here is the link to the Tamiya truck page (http://www.tamiyausa.com/product/category.php?sub-id=35000).

Here is a link to the Tamiya Control unit with video (http://www.tamiyausa.com/product/item.php?product-id=56511)

You might be able to find some people online that meet/compete with the scale big rigs.

Try truck stops. I have seen r/c semi's there in various makes and colors with trailers. I think they were in the $120-$150 range.

Later,
