Nice. That rd mack looks similar to an australian value liner from the late 80's with its set back front axle.

Alain,

Fantastic Mack RB-600 rebuild & a spot on hood scratch build. That would be a great offering to have in resin! Nice to see the B train flats for logging getting a face lift & repair as well.

Thank you for sharing,
