Mack Cement MIxer

Recommended Posts

Excellent job, and great build for a first truck model. As far as subject matter, you really dove in head first. There are a lot of experienced builders that don't venture outside of box kits, and you tackled a resin conversion! Great job on cutting down the fenders as Gator said. It really adds to it. One tip though, that grill guard should be straight vertical with the front bumper. What donor kit did you use for the chassis, or is it all resin?

Wow!! First truck build?? Wow!! Definitely not your first model though. First of all, I really like the old workhorses, and this one is off the charts. These make nice trucks, but they do require a lot of T.L.C.. This looks like an A.I.T.M. cab. Is that what you used?        Again, Wow! Great Work!! Looking forward to seeing more truck builds with a start like this.

 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.
