Wow thanks Jim you just made my day well I guess I do have some luck lol

Only one little problem that I see is that about 3 lines down it tells you not to put the engine together for drilling :blink: ! Oh well I will see

what I can do ! Time to get the drill out ! ;)

If I weren't deployed, I could get you all the pics you want! My Dad works for a concrete plant. He has no internet, nor a computer, or I'd ask him to send me some pics.

Hi all well just a little update for you.As you can see we have primed everything . Just got to sand it all now ready for paint .The barel has needed a ton of work as it was very warped thankfully its nearly done now :wacko:

post-10436-0-40672200-1395832572_thumb.j

the engine has been painted white I know its not the correct blue but white shows the weathering off better I think B) Its a recon

Thanks everyone

James the engine has come out better than I thought .I made use of the great reference that I got on here for the wires .The paint is just white acrilic and then bathed in some whitespirits and matt enamel earth then put in a rag and mop up the exess . This leaves a mottled effect on engine then the manifolds where painted with mig powders and a bit of earth for rust.

Thanks for looking more soon

Dave

Thanks Sean :) There is still a lot to do, Lots of wet flating now! . Plus the barel needs a lot more body work and there will be more pipes and wires for the chassis . The Macks are some of my favorites truck too . The dm 800 still needs some airbrushing doing to it and some small bits to finish . The dm600 has been finished for years now and it has an early KFS mixer on it B)

I will be watching for sure as i have the old ertl version and the new amt one. I like the look of the baby blue one, were did you get those tires? All the cement companies around here have the mack front like your other one. They both look great.

JT Hi thanks Its been fun so far. Ive been wanting to relocate the tank for a bit now . My only thought is that there must be a pump somwhere ? Yes the PTO drive shaft was bugging me when I did the DM800. Its just the same as the paystar . Ive still got to change the Mack
