Started out to be just a water tanker but it was looking a little bulky so it got pushed aside, then one day I was looking at truck pics on the web and ran across an old Mack  with a tank cleaner that was a similar size so here's where we ended up. The plumbing is probably not 100% accurate but it was fun building it. Made up a fictional company for my first attempt at printing decals with an inkjet printer.

"We're Number 1 with Your Number 2."

Actually saw that slogan on one.

I'm thinking about adding something like that

The local plumbers trucks have "We're number 1 in the number 2 business" on them  :lol:

Thanks fellas !!

Best post ever! :lol: Seriously, that's a great model, really well done! I bet it wouldn't stay clean and shiny like that for long in real life!

Perfect subject from great comments! I'll say like JT, not a fan of Autocars either, but the ones that are shown here are pretty hot.
