1926 Mack AC Coal Truck


Recommended Posts

One of my recent modeling activities has been to actually finish a project (what a unique concept!). About 15 years ago I was on a Monogram 1926 Mack AC kick. My maternal grandfather worked at Mack trucks during the Mack AC era (1912-1938), so I have a special connection to these trucks. I dug this one out and finished it today.
 
This one represents a well used coal truck. The color is Testor's Gull Gray, decanted and shot through an airbrush. The engine has been wired and the vehicle was weathered with black washes and pastel chalk. The load is model railroad coal (which smells like real coal). The period correct license plates were created on the Acme License Plate site. Otherwise, it's pretty much out of the box.
