Great to see someone thinking out side the box, and boy are you doing a great job so far, I really like how you have tackled this baby, and just how many parts you can use from the W900 kit,
Now, what are you doing for cab hinges, brass maybe a good option here, as there is some weight in that cab, isn't that metal glow plastic fun to work with,
with the dash and console, doesn't the console wrap around a little more?
Glad to see someone else enjoying the large scale

I used the entire chassis,Transmission,sleeper,etc...Basically I used the whole truck less the hood,I cut the fronts of the fenders off to get the headlight buckets,cut the cab all apart to use the doors and jambs and the center section of the roof. and I cut the doorpanels out of the interior,the seats and bases steering wheel and column and so on...There is very little waste of the kit,actually...The dash shape is correct to a 1980...And depending on how a particular truck was optioned, 3 dash designs were available...The cab hinges will be 16 gauge sheet metal...I haven't had much luck with brass...Painting sheet metal requires less prep than brass too,And not to mention...Cheaper!!! Oh....And workin' with "Metalglow"....LOL !!! It's a Blast!!!

Yes, but it's also a newer version with single square headlights and a "more rounded" E model?? Not really the same other than it's a cabover...

Thanks Matt!!

Good point, Roy. And most people wouldn't recognize differences in trucks. They'd probably call it a "Mack", anyway!

Looks great! Like the work on the cummins as well.....I know how much work this project is; I have one at about the same place; only I am doing a flat top; my truck is going to be a full custom; so I plan on doing a detroit 12 to go in it; along with an Alison auto trans...Again; great work scaling up..........Matt

Hey Everyone!! Heres another update. I was starting back on the bodywork on the cab...Needless to say that I went back and cut both sides of the sleeper out due to warpage.So I replaced the sides with Evergreen .060" sheetstock.Now it's straight!! And way less bodywork!!Heres some more pics of the progress on the cab...Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image Thanks for following along!!

Nice job.

Thanks Jim!! I had to fix a mess up,That spot filler was the culprit...I'm glad I found out before I went with more...3M white automotive Glazing and spot putty wasn't compatable(too hot)!! Bob Downie / zoom-zoom has told me to use the Red 2 part "Bondo" brand spot putty...He's Good!! So I know it will work!!!
