Mack Cruiseliner

Recommended Posts

This one is meant to be around an 80 model Cruiseliner. It is "mostly" box stock. Headlight buckets were modified to represent a later version than the kit. It was converted from dual stack to a single. The front bumper is an old R Model bumper from the parts box. The grill is from KJ at Double Take (Very nice by the way). Cab fans are from Double Take as well. Intake pipe ram is from Jamie at Moluminum. The deck plate is from him as well. The wheels are old Clint Freeman wheels. The drive tires are solid hard resin, but I do not know who made them. When it was all done I was actually fairly pleased with how it turned out.

I'm not a truck builder but I enjoy checking out the builds in this section.  Models like this are the reason why!  Nicely done!

Great work once again Brian ! ...the frame is loaded with some really good looking plumbing details and the weathering you applied  tops it off beautifully ..... looks like it's now overdue for the next full service at the Ryder shop !

The first ( top ) picture by the way,  gave me the impression that I was looking at a still picture from a movie , ( something like IMCDB )...." comming straight at ya "
