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

Thank you Tony. Do you mean a rim around engine/gear box joining? Thank you again. I was not sure about it. I guess I should file the rim off?
As for the straps - they will be made using black and chrome vinyl tape.

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!

Thanks to every one.

Sergy
The rim around the gearbox is fine, as it has some of the bolt detail, I would whoever fill the gap between the box and the engine to smooth it off, as between both is a flat area, if you can understand that, will see if I can find a picture,
as for the gear box clutch assembly, that is the fork that operates the clutch, it has a hydraulic line that runs to it, and a slave cylinder that operates a fork arrangement will find that pic to

Build is looking great, and the detail is very well done, I am looking forward to an update

Thank you Tony! Looking forward for the pictures.
Meanwhile small update:
As acumulator box consists of two halves I decided to detail it a little. Sprite can tin and cooper wire were used. Also drill bit and model saw:
65.jpg
To start I made sawcut in the bottom half (marked with red circles). Hinges are made of tin. Lockers are soldered wire.
66.jpg
67.jpg
Here how it will open:
64.jpg
... and close.
63.jpg
Altered first cross member.
61-1.jpg
Besides I've got etched hinges for bull bar and cab tilt:
62.jpg
The first one (marked with red circle) are on it's place. :)
By the way, can anyone show me how does real truck accumulator look like? I would like to detail it up too.

Sergey, your attention to detail is amazing! The battery box looks like it's ready to go on a real Mack, but there is one suggestion I have for you on it. You might want to research the way that box opens, because at least on later model Macks that I have driven, the battery box is not hinged, the top just lifts off from the base. There are two "L" shaped brackets on the rear sides of the bottom half that catch brackets on the top half. I'm not sure if in the old days it was different and hinged, but the newer ones don't have a hinge.

Let's continue:
70.jpg
Some work with bumper...
71.jpg
Upper brass parts are cab hinges I mentioned before.
72.jpg
The bumper will tilt (with bull bar) like this. Bumper hinge is marked with red.
73.jpg
The pieces of styrene, which hold the bumper in ride position are marked here with red.
75.jpg
On the bumper reverse side I made paces for hinge.
76.jpg
The cab was treated the same way.
74.jpg
Here are cab tilting rams (below) and radiator straps (above).
77.jpg
Some photos with the cab. Some parts are not glued, so they connected not firmly.

How do you think - is the cab sits truth and level?

Fuel tanks are ready for paint.

So exhaust staks (and chassis).

Hi, Tony!
Have you found pictures of the gear box clutch assembly? I would use it as reference.

Sergey
I have over 20,000pics, of trucks and machinery, not many are in folders, one day I will fix that
Here is the better pic I have, this shows the fork in place, what it does need is a way of engaging the fork, this is done either by air or hydraulic ram or even mechanical means
you can just see it behind the bell housing

A better pic of the ram set up
Posted Image

You could build what ever you like here and it would still look the part, as not many people add this,

I have other modern detailed pics of a road ranger box from a truck show if you need other detail pics
Hope these help

I also had the opportunity to photograph a W model Kenworth , which I took 300 pics, this was in a re build stage,
and it was a perfect opportunity to take a lot of detail shots
A W Model setup, with a series 60 engine, note how clean the joining of the box is to the engine, and the Mech clutch

Hope these help

Thank you, Tony. I guess I will make Mech clutch, as it is easyer.

Here I bought auto paint which more or less match my cab decal set. This paint is for the chassis:

At last the primer on the chassis ...

Now, how did you do your photo etch? did you do it yourself?
