    Thanks for the comments guys, this forum is great everybody is always so nice it really gets me motivated. I have the chassis assembled already I just have to think about the colors a little more.

    Mack DM 600






    Hello guys been a long time since I have posted any builds, time to correct that. This will be my first truck build ever so I will just try to do a decent clean build, we will see how it goes, I will have plenty of questions for all you truck guys. All comments and advice welcome.
    First 2 pics of the raw engine with a few hoses and wires added along with my scratch built double groove pulleys and alternator bracket, pic 3 and 4 have the basic engine painted gold and a few bits in flat and semi gloss black, last to pics I added the 2 fan belts a dark wash and just a hint of rust to the exhaust side of the turbo. I think the engine is pretty much done.
    1. My first question, the directions say you can paint the chassis black is this ok or can I use another color, the cab will be red I think.
    2. Is gold the correct color for this engine, yep to late now but I am curious.

    So far looks pretty good, I think the carb is on it's side so if he rolls the car it will still run, lol.

    Well done, your weathering is perfect, it's hard to tell it's not real.

    So far I think it looks great, I like the aggressive stance.

    Good work Dave, you will get better. What's more important is that you had fun and learned a few things in the process.

    Nice work so far, it really has the look of the Gran Prix. I bet there will be a lot of people on the forum that would want to see casts made of this.
