I decided a repair my models forest that have been damaged in an accident.This model is a flat road train modified to transport logs.I ntil ' at the end of the 1980s forest carriers used these trailers then forest specially designed for wood arrived.

 

Before repair

Nice. That rd mack looks similar to an australian value liner from the late 80's with its set back front axle.

Alain, 

Fantastic Mack RB-600 rebuild & a spot on hood scratch build.  That would be a great offering to have in resin!  Nice to see the B train flats for logging getting a face lift & repair as well.  

 

Thank you for sharing,

Now I will finish the finishing of the truck and the weathering, what you see is the excess of the underside.
