  1. Hi, Off to a slow start, but finaly got the frame painted, Rear wheels are italeri, Front are resin tyres & revell wheel with italeri rim, The body had been sprayed with cellulose on plastic ,so i decided to not waste time trying to make it good & make new parts, as i go , wheels & stacks are chrome alclad, this is it so far. Thanks for looking Graham.
  2. That`s a great looking Brockway, Impressive build well done Graham
  3. Hi, Thanks for the comments . I extended the frame & repaired the front axle with ali tube & cut down nails, Because the frame is long & empty looking i added some basic plumbing, The lift axle is scratch built along the lines of the original, the grill was also repaired, new hinges made & mack letters added, The cab still needs more work although it`s in primer. Thanks for looking. Graham.
  4. Brilliant job. Very clean & rare subject, well done. Graham.
  5. Hi, This looks just right. Great work. Graham
  6. Hi, I saw a picture of a crew cab superliner & decided to build one, A gentleman at a model show gave me a box of bits some yearrs back, in this box was parts of the can do wrecker & a Italeri frame with cummins motor, This is the start of the project, 2 resin cabs were used cut & joined with plastic card, The roof filled with balsawood , I will make a frame extension from card & perspex & hopefully all other bits from the spares stash. this is more like recycling than a new build. Hers a few pics to start with.
  7. Hi, Thanks for the interest in the Mack, The chrome vinyl i used was a 3m product in sheet form cut larger than needed & applied with a soft cloth working across the ribs front to back. Chrome vinyl sheet is nowadays available from craftshops like hobbycraft also lots of other colours. Happy new year Graham.
  8. Thank you everybody for the positive comments. Graham.

  11. Hi, Trawling through some old photo`s i came across this distant build from some time back, I built it from plastic card, perspex, plywood & balsa wood, Ali tube, with suspension & wheels from italeri also other parts from the spares. Finished in a pearl green & gold from rattle cans, The trailer is a great dane covered in chrome vinyl. The seats are made to rotate. Thanks for looking.
