Mack AC COE

The Monogram AC must be one of the best modelkits out there. Those that have yet too build one, have something too look forward to.

This was my first try on the kit, but off course, I did it non stock. I moved the cabin all the way up front, on top of the engine, and in front of the radiator. Look closely, and You will see that I've used most of the kits hood, just flattened it, and mounted it verically. I scratched a new ring arround the M logo, as I think that was the weakest point in the kit. Carveing the M out was a bit tidius, but it was worth it.

I scratched the flatbed from styrene, using only some brasstubing as supports for the long stacks.

I imagined this truck at a cotton farm, or sugarcane farm, or something simular.

Love your take on the Mack. I've also built this kit, even though mine was straight out of the box, it is an enjoyable build.

Great take on a classic truck kit.There are countless variatons of those old work horse trucks just daring us to build our on version.The only limits are our imaginations.
