    Thank you for the compliments.  Jesse, I did build a cow catcher for the front.  Was not sure if this version had one on the front?  Could not find any reference PICS. Might you know?  I know there is a cow catcher on Hemi version and the current reproduction.   A cow catcher does add a nostalgic touch.

    I was inspired to do this model by the tremendous "Freight Train" builds of Steve Perry and John Teresi.  Hope you like.

    Thanks for the nice comments.  No, I don't have a link to the toy trash truck.  I purchased it  at a discount second hand store for one dollar.  I had to do major cutting and reshaping to make it a rear loader.  I do remember the Mattel name on the bottom of it when I was hacking.  It would be nice if a resin maker would come out rear loader garbage truck body.

    Garbage Truck
    Hi Guys
       This is my 2nd attempt at a truck build.  It is a MPC Mack DM 600 with a heavily modified garbage truck body that was taken from a Mattel front loader trash toy truck.  The wheels and tires are from American Industrial Truck Models.  The decals are hand made.

      I do like the tire combination that you plan on using.  Can you please tell me about the slicks (from Hugh) that you are going to use (i.e type, size)?    Thanks.

       Will be watching for your posts with "heavy lenses".  The Hemi Under Glass is on my future build list.  Thanks for posting a great reference PIC.

     Thank you for the kind words.  The body is a resin AI Mack body over the International Pay Star 5000 Mixer chassis and mixer.  The paint is Tamiya Camel Yellow.  The decals are home made.
