Very cool project. Are you going to make it drivable via remote control or a stationary model? You have a lot more patience and craftsmanship then I could ever do.

Wow Don, very awesome craftsmanship indeed. And great truck selection to boot, I have always liked the R-model Macks. What color are you going to paint it, or have you even thought that far ahead? I think green and white is a good color scheme if you are looking for an idea. :D

That is sooo coool! I dig scale models anyway but this one is thru the roof! That would be amazing to see pics as the build progressed and as it goes as you finish it.

Thanks for posting this!---DAC

Another amazing project Don! I have to say that I'm not sure how you get anything done with that shop being so clean LOL! Your craftsmanship is incredible and your attention to detail is second to none!

That is an awesome truck and trailer you have there. I've been to your site and had to dry out the keyboard. Gonna have to put a bath towel over it next time.

Thanks everyone for the nice comments , much appreciated. Every new project is different and not sure myself it it will look right when it is completed. Always nice to get some positive feedback . My models are all just static models as it would cost several thousand to RC them. My friend that wants the model requested black frame , red cab and hood and grey trailer and his company name on the cab doors. He has a 1/4 scale Cat 40 I made him he will display on it. No Mack dog, my skills are not that good, ha,ha. I'll post the next progress picture when I get it all sanded and primed. As far as tires I have over 500 I have collected over the years for future toy projects. These tires were cheap at Harbor Freight . I bought 40 of them with tubes and rims for only $4.00 EACH a few years ago . I was going to build a 1/4 scale Michigan Gravel Train with them.

Man a gravel train would be really cool. Those are some awesome haulers. Like the log trains up there too.

Here is the next progress picture of the Mack R 1/4 scale truck . I primed the cab, hood and trailer to stop the rusting process. P.S notice the shop don't look so clean today , ha,ha,ha. macktruckprimer.jpg
