Ok, here is some information that I received from a guy who know a heck of a lot more about Mack than I do: "The first Cruiseliner (W series) came off the line in 1975, the last came of in 1983. There was and few years overlap with the Mack F model. Which confuses people to extend the Cruiseliner back farther than it was made. The AMT kit is a 1976 or 1977."

You'll note I changed the title of this thread to conform to this new information.

nice build and history, the quarter fenders look like theyre on upside down though, should the flat bit not be facing up?

 

edit; oops, my mistake, the pic of the real rig has them that way too

Thanks, guys.

 

Yes, the 1/4 fenders are on upside down deliberately.  I believe that Matlack did that so that tractor could pull tanks & keep the road spray down.

very pretty Mack models

I am  a Mack addict but have no models at home

olds Amt's or Ertl are very too expensive in Europe (80€ ~~ 100$ some time more)

it's a dream but I hope a Pinnacle by Moebius!!!!!!!!!!!

we can find the RW (superliner) without name ,its a good base
