Hi guys!

I wanna preface this by saying I'm not worthy of posting model truck pics. here at least in comparison to what I've seen. Great job one and all!

The was built in the late '80's/early '90's using the then recently reissued Mack R tractor and the dump body from an Auotcar dumper.

While it's not an exact replica, it does come close to matching a truck a friend drove while he worked for a local contractor.

Ya gotta remember I'm a factory stock muscle car guy so this was a stretch.

Not Worthy? Are you nuts? Looks just fine to me, and Jackson looks like he's trying to figure out what to haul with it.

Looks good to me too. Nice combination; the truck, dump box and driver. The display is a nice touch too. Dan

you just gave me a sense of what my restored R model will look like, as i was planning to use the same dump body. The white cab and hood caught my attention, as that was my plan, but with stripes. You will see it soon. Your truck is worthy by the way.
