BRBO 2020 Mack B61 and Tanker

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hello all! In between work, landscaping, and laying flooring upstairs I was able to grab some bench time. Here are the first photos of my entry. This is my first attempt at a full resin build. The Mack and chassis are from AITM. The tanker is from Lindberg. The colors will be red and yellow.

Very cool project Brian!  These old Mack B61 are rare and very beautiful, the subject is awesome.  A blast from the past!

Here are a few updates on the build. The truck and trailer are out of paint. I need to start the touch up process. The interior is finished.

Thanks everyone. Not much time to work on the project this week but here are a few updates. I seem to have a slight rake to the truck. When I add the trailer, it sits a little high in the front. I currently have a set of Italeri tires on the trailer. I need to order some taller tires to eliminate some of the issue and to add to the time period.

Here are the recent updates. The decals are on. Still need to do some touch up on the trailer but I think the build is coming along nicely.

It's perfect Brian, a real time capsule!  It smell cheap gasoline prices of this sadly gone era...  Well done sir, you must be proud of this superb build!

Thank you everyone. I have finished the truck except for the grill guard. It is in paint along with the new AITM rear duals for the trailer.
