I am liking it, I am a firm believer you need to start casting your own "Bandag " tires.

Nice job shortening the cab.  I have picked up a couple coe kits to make day cabs and single axles out of. (someday)

Looks like your off and running! Cab looks great! Good job on the cut down. I was wondering if you had aquired another bed, but scratchbuilt is the way to go! I cant wait to see it done with the Boss truck hitched up.

Here is another update. Thanks Old Buckaroo for the tires. Still more detailing to go but nearing completion. Sorry for not many pics I don't think about it when I'm working on them. When done more pics will come. Any sugestions welcome

Holy Hauler Batman!!! How do you crank these out so fast? This is impressive to say the least. Youve raised the bar on the Malone trucks, building the two that were never available as a kit. Whats next? Defiance, the wheel standing Freightliner Coe with the P51 engine?

I have wondered that myself :huh:

You are doing a super job on the Mama Truck.  I am really liking your Fleet of Tyrone trucks !

Thanks ,

I am retired so I spend most of the day watching the tube and working on models. It's been wet here so can't go out much. It just keeps me busy. I would do more but am running out of the stuff I need. I have some parts comming to finish these off and these are a bit of a guide for you others who can do much better. You'll notice things that could be better. I may down the road have to shorten the bed. Wish I had the right decals to finish it right

Shoooot!!! This is just as detailed as it needs to be.....Don't sell yourself short.....At times, detail can be overrated.....My kind of project, Man.....You caught the gist of it really well.....I am, seriously, going to build on like this......But it won't be Tyrone Malone on the side of the truck.....I gotta do my own thing, you know......Just gonna use it as a template.....Looks Great, to me..... :D

The Mama is done now just wating on the air conditioning unit for the roof. I tried to duplicate the bed decals but they didn't suit me. I may have to skip them. :(
