R Model Mack Dumptruck

Here is one I built back in 1993. I got a built up cab that I stripped down and repainted. I added working rear suspension to the AMT kit and cut down an AMT dumptrailer to make the dump box.

Hi Alain:

Thanks for the comments. I originally had the 1/16 scale tire that came with the Revell Cando kit on the truck but that didn't look right. I noticed some dumptrucks around here are running a 385/65 or even the larger 425/65 tires up front with an overall dia. of up to 45.6 inches and I liked that look so the closest I had was the 385/65 Italeri tires. I know that Plaskit now makes a wide variety of float tires and when it comes time to rebuild this truck I may go with some of his newer castings as they are much wider than the italeri tires with a lower profile on the side wall height which would improve the looks.

Thanks,

Mike

Nice build and photography. Build one with the RD cab. It will look up-to-date.

Very nice Mack, Mike! Good use of the dump trailer body. I like the chains you used on the rear door and on the pintle, quite realistic.
