Heres another one on the bench, its an amt mack r cab and hood. I did not have the frame so i used an amt freightliner dual drive frame. Im using wide steer tires found in the revell cando pete and bill signs. Im thinking a mechanical cat will be powering this puppy. image_zps21854a76.jpg[IMG]http://i123.photobuc...bc6e5.jpg[/IMG. image_zpsb05f6448.jpgimage_zps5b8a2f7a.jpg

A friend of mine has a '70 something R700 that's had its V8 Mack replaced with a 3406B and an Eaton 13 Speed. We've christened it the Mackerpillar, looks like yours is coming along nicely too.

you may have to add a r700 hood on it if your going to stuff a cat under the hood. i remember back in the day.r models that  had anything like a cat or cummins,or even a v8 mack where all r700s. roadway had some with detroits in them.
