Mark,

 

This is amazing work!  I can't get over the (Alclad) chrome wheels, stacks and breathers!  That came out really bright and shiney!  The paint job is really eye catching and resembles a today's (2010s) paint scheme.  This is real inovative and inspiring work...great stuff.

- Robert - thanks for the comments.  Now I'll have to find a windshield for the other Mack!

 

- Mark - thanks for the comments. Good to see you back on the board.  Anxiously awaiting an update to one of your detailed projects!

 

- Angel - that combo is OUTSTANDING!!! I love the gloss red truck and the matching trailer!  That is one beautiful model!  I agree with Sean, that is a great story behind your choosing that truck and trailer kit.  I first built the Mack over 30 years ago too and it was one of my favorites.  I knew the model didn't look anything like the picture on the back page of the instructions but I hadn't seen the movie at the time.  I was so impressed with the movable parts and opening doors that I didn't care if it resembled the movie truck.  I finally saw the movie when I was in my late 20s.  It's a great kit and yours turned out really, really nice!!!  Thanks for the comments!

 

- Sean - how goes it?  PM sent

 

Here's a recent WIP

Thanks for the kind words!  Neat info on the Mack licensing, wish more truck manufacturers had oversight like Mack to ensure an accurate product.

 

Slow progress on this as the trailer has a few missing parts.  Mainly the small stuff that is not seen but I'd like to make it a complete model.  Acquired a DM800 Mixer that had a decent windshield and am using it for this build.  Here are a couple of recent pics.

 

Comments, critiques welcomed...Jeff

Hey Chuck,

 

That is a really nice build.  Great weathering and superbly built!  The old Reo looks perfect pushing that plow. I like it!!

Hey Tom,

 

Very nice looking truck and trailer.  The gravel trailer looks awesome in red!  Very nice build and so is the Road Boss, it's looking good too!  Good stuff!  Be safe from those tornados, Mother Nature is tough!  We got some crazy weather too here in Colorado.
