Wow Dave , this is some really impressive work.  The engine detail is awesome. 

I also like the pics of your other two Mixers. B)

Thanks Sean :) There is still a lot to do, Lots of wet flating now! . Plus the barel needs a lot more body work and there will be more pipes and wires for the chassis . The Macks are some of my favorites truck too . The dm 800 still needs some airbrushing doing to it and some small bits to finish . The dm600 has been finished for years now and it has an early KFS mixer on it B)

This is gonna be one beautiful setup.....I like the water tank relocation.....They look much better, that way....The PTO work is a nice touch, too.....Looks like you're having some fun with this one....

I will be watching for sure as i have the old ertl version and the new amt one.   I like the look of the baby blue one, were did you get those tires?  All the cement companies around here have the mack front like your other one.  They both look great.

JT Hi thanks Its been fun so far. Ive been wanting to relocate the tank for a bit now . My only thought is that there must be a pump somwhere ? Yes the PTO drive shaft was bugging me when I did the DM800. Its just the same as the paystar . Ive still got to change the Mack

Ewan Hi you should open one up and start one ! The tyres on the DM800 are from the revell unimog kits you will need 2 kits to get 10 tyres as you get 5 tyres in each kit .They are very nice but quite soft so I had to pack them all with cotton wool to fill them so that they could hold the weight of the Mack. Whats the chance of you taking a few pictures of those Macks for the 1/1 reference page?.........

Im glad your working on the PTO. Ive been doing research to scratchbuild some PTO's and jackshafts for winches, wrecker setups. Its a big missing link with these kits. Im also making sprokets and checking out some scale motorcycle chain made by Tamiya to drive the winch. Im going to resin cast the PTO. Cant wait to see your progress. Keep on truckin!

Nice job so far.

 

Just a heads up on the Paystar, the bars on the side vent over the drivers side fender are supposed to be vertical like the grill, not horizontal as the instructions show. It is an easy fix, just need to sand off the locating pins and rotate the little grill 90 degrees.

I wish i could get a pic, every time i see one its next to me on the hwy.  Yesterday i saw 3 alone in one day, all the older mack cabs and 3 different companies. I did notice that they all have the water tank and gauge were yours is, never really noticed that before know that i am looking for them.
