Model Truck and Fire Apparatus had quite a few Macks, if the CH is the flat nose rather blocky cab I think they had one. The company is now under new ownership as American International Truck Models, the owner has been redoing many of the molds so everything is not up on the site yet but it might be worth checking. I've emailed about a couple of things and have always had a quick reply.

Whoops, I was thinking of the Mack MC. Good luck on the CH there don't seem to be many current trucks out there right now.

And to confuse things, there is also the Mack C600... which is a snub-nose conventional, AITM (www.aitruckmodels.com) has that too.

A caster by the name of Tim Sherman was casting the CH-CL Mack cabs in 1/24 scale for use w/ Italeri truck kits. I believe his email is plasticcar@aol.com

I recently bought some stuff from him, thats the email I had. I went back and found the email where he listed what he has and there is a Mack CH600 listed, that wasn't what I was interested so I didn't notice until you brought it up.

I had good service, 3-4 weeks for delivery, not bad for resin casters. The castings were decent, not as nice as Scale Equipment Ltd or Bobby Griffin's castings but very usable with a little bit of work. He has quite a few unusual items like the Jeep FC I bought.

Here is the description I got from his listing

Mack CH-600 conversion: cab, hood, interior, seats, seat bases, front
bumper, grille, headlights, quarter fenders, chrome slam lock door
handles, windshield- (donor kit used is any Italeri 1/24 rig kit)- $70.00


Sorry I didn't make the connection earlier.

No but if you email him at the address Trailer Mechanic posted he will send you a list of what he has. He has a nice selection to choose from, mostly medium and heavy duty trucks but also a few odds and ends.
