Mack Superliner " Australian Road Train "

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

The construction has lasted 3 years, the trailers are difficult to have. In the Mack all logos are photo-etched because Italeri has no license. I have installed 2 auxiliary tanks and other rear fenders made of aluminum.
To photograph a road train was a real challenge because of the length: 1.72m

Greeting Jan

Ah!! Look at that! Very nice, you have built one of my dreams:D
The first truck model kit I buil was in 1998 and it was Revells version of the Peterbilt 377 and on the back of the box was a picture of the road train trailer and also the road train Kenworth. I have ever since wanted to build one like that but have never been able to by all the trailers that are needed. Funny thing is that I have also wanted to build it with the Mack Superliner and use the sleeper from the Kenworth kit. You have done a very good job on it and I wish I could see it live :)
