I'm in with a single drive Freightliner and double Header set. Once I get the double Header, I'll start the bench posting.

 

What title should be used to designate the builds?

Sam - yup I'm gonna cheer along as the builds progress. I thought about working on the kw, but my track record of getting sidetracked is well known lol and I really want to wrap up the Oshkosh plow. 

I did stumble across this photo , and it nearly derailed me..

I might have a plow for that. 😂

Finish the Oshkosh, and then jump in with the KW.....then start this little truck.

😂😂👍

Reminds me of some of the goodies in the NJ DOT storage garage in 1978.  Too bad I never took pics.

Count me in though I'll have to figure out a worthy project.  Got too many of them but I also don't want to take on too much.  The Rubber Duck Mack was over a year......but the Autocar DK was only a couple of months (though I was sick for 3 weeks which gave me plenty of build time).

Warren D - thanks for joining up I added ya to the list .

That 761 was part of Syracuse's fleet, unsure when the photo was taken. I figured it was a nysdot truck, but guess they didnt run 5 hole  budds on their trucks according to an enthusiast.

Sam -  I m trying to stay on task, but struggle with willpower when something interesting comes along lol

After the mix up with the topic in the Truck Stop that I just discovered (go look in the 53 foot trailer topic, D'oh!) I'm in too. Don't know quite with what yet but I'm thinking it'll either be a Kenworth W925 or one of the many gluebombs I have to rebuild. Leaning toward the KW.

Well since I’m on a 1/32 scale kick I’m in with this AITM 1/32 scale  Mack R-700 big radiator with a Mercury Sleeper I got from Dave A couple weeks ago. I’m waiting for the 5 hole front wheels from Don Mills. There will be some changes as I go because I’m undecided about the tanks, air cleaner and wheel base. Thanks for having me
