Hello, friends.
I started with the engine.
It should look like this:
1973_maxidyne_300_series.jpg
50.jpg
Laying out fuel lines fron injector to cylinders.
39-1.jpg
I decided to improve pulleys.
40.jpg
Cut off the belts.
42.jpg
Alternator pulley was turn using power drill and device on photo.
41.jpg
The rest of the pulleys were partly punched from styrene.
43.jpg
The result.
44.jpg
Alternator seemed too simple.
45.jpg
So it was altered with one more lug (marked with arrow, flywheel (on the left) and bracket(on the right).

Kit starter:
46.jpg
It's location on the block:
47.jpg
I cut off the part, which will be painted with the engine
48.jpg
...and added some detailes to unit:
49.jpg
The engine (not finished jet):
51.jpg
52.jpg
Some parts are not glued because they will be painted seperattely in a different color. Filters were cut of brackets by the same reason.
53.jpg
Up on the right is the tube locating above the valve cover. Up on the left is reinforced tube surraunding air filter hose:
maxidyne13.jpg
Kit radiator suffered form lack of rim on the back side. I used 25mm plastic tube to cut a short piece for radiator. By the way, this tube will be used to make fuel tanks.
54.jpg
The hose between air cleaner and intercooler proved to be too short. I plan to cut it and insert pieces of aluminum tube 6mm:
59.jpg
First cross member will be replaced by brass tube (on the left) because it will hold bull bar hinges.
Feel free to ask questiones.

Excellent work Sergey!!! A model so detailed would really benefit from a set of the real aluminum split rim ten hole wheels I'm having made!!!! Not only are they real machined aluminum, but they are also correct in shape. The AMT wheels have incorrect contours. These wheels are designed to be direct replacements for the kit wheels and still use the kit's plastic lock rings. (The lock rings are steel and would be painted on real wheels). I have also had real machined aluminum lug nuts made to go with these wheels. If you think you might be interested in some, let me know.Posted ImagePosted Image

Thank you Ben. I will think it over.
One more thing: I plan to paint the engine in gold, like on top photo. I saw they also were light blue and red. Am I right about my decision?

Hello Sergey! I am not a Mack expert but I do know they paint their engines gold or grey. I'm not sure on light blue or red though?

Depending on the year, in this case the late 1970s, gold would be an appropriate choice. I've found that Tamiya Gold Leaf X-12 is pretty close. The 300-Plus ETAZ-673A was copper colored.

Hello Ben! Here are the examples:

As I mention before the tanks will be replaced. Tank brackets too. Here are the tool and materials for that:

Here are the tank side pieces:

I used the rest of the material for tank brackets:

Fuel tank:

Fuel tank brackets:

A photo of the real frame to compare:

Nice detail happening here, with some nice attention to detail
One thing most people leave off when detailing a engine is the clutch assembly on the gear box
and when you do the tank straps for the tanks, they also have a rubber moulding under the strap in most cases, some custom trucks don't have these
I attached a pic of the KW version of these straps, and a pic of the 1/16th version that I cast in rubber so you could see the result

I really like the pulley detail, they really come up great, will have to use that idea myself

Look forward to another update

Hey Sergey, seeing that red engine, I'm reminded of seeing them before but I've never seen a light blue one! I like how it looks! You do know there's lots of places you can get real aluminum fuel tanks to put on your truck, right? Nothing looks more like an aluminum fuel tank...than an aluminum fuel tank!!!! LOL
They're cheap too!
