1/32 Mack B-61 Tandem axle Tractor


Recommended Posts

I’ve been working on this for a little over two years thought I’d try to finish this thing up I’m leaning more towards the 1/32 scale due to the size and Limited space I have

The truck is a JMT promotional truck and the frame is a monogram 1/32 scale R Model Mack that I’ve modified and added the tanks to. The interior is zinc chromate green and the gearshift knobs or pale green enjoy the pics

Thanks Brian 

This goes together much Easier than 1/25 scale and there’s no guessing on the windshield and such and trying to fit other parts. Another reason I like this 1/32 scale it’s a space saver and you don’t have much revenue invested in it I’ve just about gave up on 1/25 scale.

Thanks guys

Me too, I’m kinda getting tired of building model kits with almost 300 parts after about 40 years of building these kinda kits I’m really liking this 1/32 scale and 1/43 low parts count kits. I have built a lot of them when I was a kid. I will have more 1/32 trucks on the bench soon. I’m working on the mirror brackets now than this one will be done

Today I re-visited this old build and decided to add a Don Mills Winch to it.  I’m going try to get this thing off the bench

Bob. Thanks for the complement yes I enjoy doing different things with these JMT Mack’s. I’ll have another that I’ll be building after this one but it will be a single axle.

To mix species, your Bulldog is a real chunky monkey, looks great. On a shelf, in your collection that will look as good as anything else.

I bought the 1/32 Monogram trucks because I had them when I was a kid and was sorry I ever got rid of them. I find them quite enjoyable and deliver a decent result with a bit of effort. You can't go nuts on detailing because it's not there! I like that you can mock them up without gluing anything so you can finish your day's work and sit looking at it. The size difference makes a difference too. Lot to be said for them.

Lee,

       That is an interesting little kit. I really like the winch you added. It really makes the truck in my opinion !

 

 

    Be Well

Gator. I have to agree with you looks better with the winch I need to put the cable on it and the mirrors and call it done

   Lee, What are you going to use for the winch cable ? I use braided fishing line from Muskie Master .

 

  Be Well
