Thanks a lot Håkan and Russell. I´ve been checking the Tyrone Malone FB quite a lot lately, looking for all the details I can find. My interest in Tyrone Malone´s trucks was never too deep untill now. It´s a fascinating adventure. From a whale display to power trucks.... ain´t that breathtaking? I wonder if the Super Boss was equipped with the front brakes all the time or if they were added on later since the AMT kit includes no front brakes. The Bandag Bandid doesn´t have them either.
I also wonder if this blanket around the Allison transmission is there for museum display purposes only (to prevent oil stains on the floor) or if it was present when the truck was at full performance back in a day.
Thank you Ben for the explanation. But this leads me to another thing. I tried to find a picture that would show the whole thing becuase there is only part of the system visible in the photo. I was not successful. I have looked through the pictures of several setups on the net but these are probably different. If I tried to add this part on my version of the Super Boss model, what should it look like? Is it a stabilizer running accross the whole width of the axle or are there two smaller ones on each end of the axle? I wish I knew the answer to this. Can someone help?
Thanks a lot. I already scratch bulit the Allison automatic for my Peterbilt fire truck. I took the dimensions from the AMT Super Boss kit and added some details according to the pics I found on the internet.
Truly amazing pumper. I looked at the work bench section again to remind me how this build came into being. You have done a fantastic job and that includes the painting. If I may have one question, how did you make the hoses? They look fantastic too.
