APRIL FOOL!

The bulldog is done. Amber fog lights and extra lights on the rear fenders complete the '70s look. The front fenders don't fit quite right, but I think I'll live with it. All I have to do is make up a license plate for it.

Edit: I made two plates, fitting the direction of the build.

good job Casey. What paint did you use to simulate the Mack interior green?

Thanks everyone! For my interior I used Model Master Acryl # 4793 "Lichtgrun". I found it with the artillery paints, I guess its German. It dries to a nice semigloss sheen that is perfect for the interior.

And, as a final parting shot for the build, long lost cousins.

P.S.
As a final note, I had a blast doing this build. And keep a lookout, I WILL be doing the DM600!

Excellent work! The colors work well together. Thanks for letting us know what color you used on the interior. Looks good on it. Remember to get out and flip the 5th wheel down before you back under your trailer, there driver!!

Nice build!!

 

Nice to see the re-issue was molded white.

My Ertl  issue (Continuation re-issue??)

was molded in color. Cab etc were red, not sure about chassis, engine. But think some parts were black.

I need to dig it out & get pictures.

 

Wish I could find this & the 600 though!!!!

 

By the time I heard about them, they were sold out and only on the secondary market.

Almost double price too!!
