Mclean White Road Commander

Recommended Posts

This was built on an AMT Chevrolet Titan chassis. It is powered by a 903 Cummins. The casting was pretty rough, probably an amateur copy of the old Jamar fuberglass cab. The drive tires are my last Clint Freeman tires.

Absolutely great build of a no-nonsense typical fleet truck, Brian: Outstanding weathering - dust and grime - makes it look so realistic (also the absence of chrome bling-bling like vertical exhaust pipes and the like)

Very well done!

Like I said on the MTB forum, the weathering is spot-on. Perfect amount of dust and grime from the road. 5th wheel grease is awesome, too. 

Thanks Victor!!

I wouldn't know it was resin if you didn't say it was.  Great look!  Is that the AITM battery box/airtank?  I've been looking for a bunch of them.....

Thanks Warren!! The battery box is styrene from the parts box, but I don’t remember what kit it came from.

Nice looking tractor, I really like the used fleet look you give to your trucks.

Thanks Justin! I like building the old working trucks that I used to see on the road.

This is very convincing and I like how gradually the tone of red changes from bottom to top.  
Thanks for sharing this, it is beautiful. 

Thanks Steve!! My process is usually trial and error, often heavy on the error, but I was pretty happy with how this one turned out.

I love checking out your builds. Always a high degree of realism and interesting subject matter. This one certainly fills the bill. The weathering is spot on.  Beautiful work. 

Thanks Trevor!! I always have an internal battle; should I leave it shiny or weather it a bit.

Fantastic job on this Road Commander!  You have perfected the "in from the long haul look".

 Thanks Tommy! I don’t know if I have perfected anything, but I am still learning. 😀
