Nice Sergey

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

You right Tony. I have drawn the design and one guy etched some parts for me.
About the Mech clutch: how does it go from clutch pedal to the bell housing? Have you got the picture or scheme?

I guess somebody asked this questione before (may be even me), but once again: I often see small numbers on the cab of US Trucks. Mostly on COEs, in lower back corner of the cab, as "Love Machine" have.

I guess it is Owner Operator registration numbers, but would like to be sure. What is the correct name of this numbers and what are their meaning?
I am writing an article about this model and should be correct in terms.

Sergey! Where are you? I hope you ahven't given up on Paulie! Your Mack was going so well!
Also Sergey, how come people from Russia, such as you, are so interested in north american trucks? I see a lot of beautiful, well built models on different forums built by people from your country. That is so cool!
Anyway, Give us news soon, that Mack truck is too good not to finish. :D

The numbers are the permits from each state giving the truck the authority to operate in a state. Back in the 60's and 70's truckers were required to obtain authority from each state to haul in.

Hey guys,

Looking this picture of Love Machine, I can hear his laugh while speaking via CB to the others telling that story with the twins and his waterbed....

Kostas.

Hey Robert! Sorry for delay. I was busy with my own small business.
Of course ahven't given up on Love Machine. I guess I fall in love with north american trucks after watching "Convoy" movie (like many Russian guys) several times.
Thank you, Tim, for the information.
I wasn't wasting my time. Here is the chassis in color:

Here is the bare engine

I printed buldog emblems on clear decal paper for filters:

I found rear qarter fenders in Freightliner DD kit. Aluminium tubes, glued to the chassis will hold them in place:

This fuel tank steps are came from KFS

Thank you for interest.

Hi Sergey,
I have been watching this project from the start and I have nothing but the highest admiration for your work. It is really awesome. Someone from the land of Zil, Ural, Kraz, Maz and Kamaz is able to make such hard core models of American trucks. That is amazing. We, the boys from the east, are alike, I guess, in how we got interested in American trucks. Born a truck driver´s son I was attracted by trucks in general quite soon. But the Convoy movie really boosted my interest in American trucking. Also the country music´s truck driving songs. I did not understand a word in English then, but the sounds like "eighteen wheeler... semi... rig... truck stop... breaker one - nine... ten - four... ", soon got their meaning.

I am sorry for sliding off topic a bit. Robert was intersted in what made us to build these models. Anyway, great work, Sergey.

Started to alter air inlet pipe. It has pan cake top in the kit (on the left), but there is ram inlet in the movie. I used styrene:

After glue and putty:

Replacing the kit silencer (below) for plastic pipe. Pieces of aluminium pipes will play exhaust pipes role. The mech abowe will make the shield:

Silencers and air inlet pipe almost done:

Kit headlights (below) should be replaced with styrene one. They were different in the movie:
100.jpg
The reflectors building technology shown here: http://www.autoinsca...=article&id=350
The kit chrome headlights were reduced in depth and drilled. Turn signals were moved closer to the grill:
105.jpg
Here is the result:

104.jpg

Spare holes were putted.

The bull bar billet:

Guys, tell me please: which color should be here spring rear mud flaps brackets? Black or chassis color?

Great job on the detail, where did you get the bolt heads? and all the detail stuff like that? the truck is going to need a ignition key so you can drive it

Nice work as usual, but need to ask why the decals? thought it would have been easier to paint the cab, then add the decals as needed, it must be hard to get the
cab colour to the chassis

I don't have a picture of the cab over clutch set up, only the conventional W model, but it would be on the same sort of set up, with brackets and levers,
would be much easier to do hydraulic set up with a slave cylinder

Got any more up dates?
