Well, after finally finishing up my H61 Cherrypicker I swore to myself I wasn't going to scratchbuild another truck again.....that lasted a week until I started on this one. I had some sales brochures and spec sheets from the Mack museum so that plus boredom and some evergreen sheets floating around was all i needed to get started. I still have a lot of work left to do but progress is happening pretty quickly with this one. Apart from the wheels, tyres,engine/gearbox and diesel tanks everything has been made by myself.The bullnose hood will open once I make up some little hinges,as will the doors. Colour will be the same emerald green as my H61. Here are a few pics of where I'm at with it now.Attached File  CAM00019.jpg   98.99KB   68 downloadsAttached File  CAM00020.jpg   103.96KB   98 downloadsAttached File  CAM00021.jpg   94.94KB   115 downloadsAttached File  CAM00022.jpg   81.19KB   116 downloadsAttached File  CAM00023.jpg   83.55KB   86 downloads
