Mack DM 800 with dumper trailer (ERTL)


Recommended Posts

I recently found some old photoprints - these are from 1983 - and scanned them: built out of the box, truck is brush-painted, trailer body sprayed with Revell matte steel grey.

I have located the trailer, but don't know where the truck actually is - will be reworked and turned into a workhorse some day (too much bling-bling on this one = too many decals and much too much chrome !)

what an impressive beast, I always find those Mack pretty intimidating.

very nice build. Now you're gonna need the CAT D8 to push all those rocks.😀

Thanks, Mario - I have the Cat D8H also, but it is heavily damaged.

   Helmut,

              That has to be one of the best Bi-Centennial paint jobs I've seen in quite some time. You nailed it !

The trailer looks good as well. Although a bit overloaded !

   Nice work , That rig looks real good from over here !

Thank you, Gator- in the meantime I happened to 

find the truck - the former white stripes have turned to an ugly tan/yellow color - all due to the Revell clear gloss enamel I used almost 40 years ago for covering paint and decals.

This is definiely a candidate for rebuilding !

Helmut awesome build up of your Mack truck and dump trailer!  And that was 40 some years ago. I only remember building mine back then and I have no pictures and my truck was blown up by my younger brother lol.

Thank you, Dan - I was able to prevent my little brother destroying my truck models (but he was yet 17 when I re-started modeling :-)

A Mack never stops being a Mack, nice build. I bet those trees and shrubs in the pics are so big now and well overgrown.

Thanks, Yevgeny !
