My friend wanted to give his Dad, who is retired, a model of the truck he drove back in the 70's. He found the kit he wanted, The Revell Snaptite Mack R series tanker, and asked me if I would build it for him.This was my first commissioned work, LOL

I had to cut the sleeper off, shorten the frame and add a few other touches to replicate the original truck. Everything is done in various Alcad finishes and the cab is painted Testors Red Enamel

Nice Mack! very cleanly built. Those R series looked pretty good, they were recognizable from a distance and nothing else looked quite like it. Not quite a classic like the B but close.

James II: Believe it to be 1/32 scale if it was a snap kit. That is a super clean build. Very nice work, Jay!

Are they on clearance now? I haven't been to Michael's in a while and thought they were kinda expensive last time I was in. Which one did you go to? I will have to check out the one in Mississauga later this week.
