Cheers mate. I would really love to get this one done by the start of March as I'm back into studies again. It's going better than I thought it would.

image.thumb.jpeg.397f9ae20212961be57f7daResearching this project, I found that the chassis rails in the western series of  Mack trucks varied to the usual r series chassi rails. It turns out they were straight rails on the RS700L. This is great news for me as making a whole chassis should be easier than altering the snap tight chassis. Cheers

Not much to report for April. I've started to make air brake detail. I've had to do 2 assignments for uni plus overtime at work so hopefully pictures in May of my progress.

Nothing for May. Should be plenty for June as I've just finished my last assignment for uni. Hopefully have some pics by next weekend.
