Mack B81 tractor by Fire Replicas

I've just received this model, purchased from DHS Diecast in Ohio.

These limited edition 1/50 resin models are quite expensive but they're also exceptionally well detailed and finished. I chose the green version simply because, to me, the least amount of chrome 'bling' enhances the realism.  In their day, these were work-horses, not fancy show trucks. They come with a well finished, sophisticated felt base and acrylic cover

During the late '50s and early '60s, the B81 series were Mack's heaviest duty trucks, using the familiar B series cab but distinguishable by the hard front fenders and large diameter wheels/tires.

I have four of these B-81s now - the all green and the yellow/ black are just classic construction color combos, and I couldn't resist the red/ black and Sid Kamp livery. These are just beautiful models. Tiny next to my Fred Thompson Smith-Millers and even my 1/34 First Gears, but these are worth the $$ to me. Nicely, nicely done.
