Mack DM 800 stars and stripes paint scheme


Recommended Posts

In 1970 Mack introduced a very attractive stars and stripes paint scheme. Ertl's and later AMT's box artwork of their DM 800 kit always showed this peculiar paint scheme.

 

All issues of the DM 800 had the the same decal sheet including a lot of white stripes in order to make replicating the stars and stripes paint scheme easier.

When I built the kit about 20 years ago as one of my very first truck models I used only the decal stars because masking and painting the stripes turned out to be easier than applying the decal stripes
