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.

I'm still at it. Just struggling with the air deflector and bullbar. I have holidays soon so I will hook into the troublesome parts then. Cheers

Hi fellas, I'm still doing this build. I've also started working on the trailer. The 2 hole bud wheels for the prime mover have been giving me trouble. They're too big and don't look right, so I'm working on modifying the kit rims and using auslowe 1/32 wheels to make the wheels. Cheers.
