ShakyCraftsman Posted March 28, 2021 Share Posted March 28, 2021 (edited) Hey all I posted some of this in another post but didn't get much response so I decided to give it it's own post. I bought a 1/24 Italeri Mack Superliner kit and the 1/24 truck accessories kit. The Aussie parts from the 1/24 Italeri Western Star (that I already have) will be going on this. this is the basic kit, there will be alot of changes made to it to make it into a Aussie road train hauler! this view shows the truck accessories kit. I purchased this to get the rear Mack 6 spoke wheels for the Mack Superliner, I had to customize them to make them work. this view shows the Mack E9 that I'm adding to the Mack. I I bought a bunch of stuff from Auslowe model trucks, shh!!!...don't tell the wife, I don't want to be the next Bobbet!...lol I also got a 13/18 speed Mack transmission to go with it. This is the mural I'm going to be hand painting on the back of the sleeper. I'm not sure about the name, I have to think about it. this is the 1/24 Italeri kit I'm getting all of the Australian parts from. this view shows the front 385/65 R22.5 tires that I got from the 1/24 Italeri European wheels and tyres kit. I modified the Mack wheels from the Australian truck kit. I had to widen them to get the tires to fit. this view shows the wheels and tires (315/70 R22.5) from the 1/24 European wheels and tyres kit. I had to add a extra inner wheel half ring to the outside of the Mack rear wheel to widen it and get these tires to fit.
