Okay, well I guess if this now the official BRBO 2021 thread, I should post up my entry.

And here it is.

I have a couple of ideas for the paint, still undecided which direction. But I guess I have time to sort that out. :)

Watching all these fantastic builds getting posted , and the excitement of the 2021 brbo start date getting close , I figured I d post my project too.  

I'm planning a tribute build to the retired fleet of Brockway 361s of Barney Dickenson. This is actually the 2nd BD mixer ive built of their fleet,, the first one belongs to the owners now.  1660582168_Bhusky1.jpeg.c226dfcf057fb7926d830506a2256251.jpeg

These trucks were hugely popular driving around the Southern Tier. Recently they started to clear out the retired trucks and scrap them out . Thankfully a few trucks are being saved , and mine will be a small tribute for my Husky collection.

So here is my dilemma on the T800.  I have the AMT T600 and transkit. I also have a few of the Revell dump boxes in hope to build truck and trailer. My father-in-law has driven three of these, first one was a 1996 with a cat. These pics are of the 2011 with cummins, and his current ride is a 2017 that looks identical to the 2011. My goal is to build something that resembles but will not be an exact duplicate, with only minor details added.  So I  think the Revell box will be close enough once the tailgate gets squared up. The only other item I need is a steering axle that is similar to the one pictured...if possible.  Any and all help is appreciated.

Jacobus you should write down all the Mack kits on paper you have and then put them each in a jar and then have someone pull one out for you to build.

I have made my choice. It will be the Revell Peterbilt 359. The colors are yet to be determined. As well as stripe package. Good luck to all participants.
