This is from the Iveco kit.

This is the work done on the Daf chasis, it will be cut down and added to the Iveco chasis.

Looking nice, Richard. What color are you going to paint the transmission?

Jim



Thanks Jim.
I still have to do some research on trani colours.

Noddy,

It'll be interesting to watch those two kits become one.


More work done on mine. Plumbing is in now. Dash is in. Wheels/hubs and tires ready. Fuel tanks on. Battery boxes tomorrow?



I bought some 1/48 scale aircraft gauge decals some time back. Six of them now in the dash of the Mack. I have a set of decals on the way that should fill up the two main gauges. Touch up paint needed in a couple of places.

Peter, that looks interesting. I have no idea what that is.

Richard, I believe that most transmissions (new) were either semi-gloss black or the frame color. Spicers were Oxide Red, and I think Allison automatics were natural aluminum.

Nice looking interior, Mike.

Mack's got new shoes.





Pretty much left to priming the remaining parts as I'm out of Medium Gray. Awaiting an order to come in.

I think the only chrome that'll be on this build is the MACK emblem on the front and perhaps the roof lights and horns. I have a Molotow Chrome Pen and will see how that works out.

Cab is Ghost Gray and most everything else that attaches to the cab will be the Medium Gray (like the grill).

Now debating about a stripe (or two) on the cab. Dunno.

Hi Mike
That looks great bud.

The rig I am building is a deicing rig I drive at EDI airport.

Cheers

Rob, that's one clean workbench! What's that Wingy Thing by the computer?

Peter, nice work on the IVECO, or is it going to be a DAF?

It's clean because it's new and not used yet. lol
That was an F-111 before my landlords got a hold of it.

I have done a fair bit to the deicing rig over the last 3 days, and will have a good half day on it tomorrow.
Here is the progress

Rear axle and wheels painted and ready to be attached.
20180219_165112
The main chasis and I have added a small panel to raise the back tank and equipment bay area.
20180219_165117
The cab parts being painted and glossed are being attached
20180219_165121
All applied
20180220_105149
Rear part and axle and rear steering attached
20180220_105155
Work on the back
20180220_105214
Tested for fit. Note the holes in the side, this is for the side doors for access to the equipment bay and turntable.
20180220_171422
20180220_171429
I am not sure whether to have one of the side doors open, as there is alot of workings in there.

Really nice work Peter. The shell is looking good and that mash up of the running gear...unique.

Looking great guys. I have yet to start mine. Been really busy with family matters and trying to put the finishing touches for an up-coming exibition in april. I decided I will be building another truch diorama using The Italeri 142 Flatbed:


I will be modifying the trailer and doing some scratch building as well. How long it will take or how far I will come to finishing it? Well, we shall see.

Peter, the way you took the picture makes it look real. Great! Any thoughts on painting the IVECO sign?

Hi Gabriel

I will use the decals in the kit for the Iveco sign. There will be lots left over in this and the DAF kit, but I am sure I can put them to good use.
I am thinking of building a Scania to at some point along the same lines, but the Iveco is my favourite rig at work. Automatic and nice to drive.

The back is only dry fitted as I have more work to do on it. It needs another gloss coat now the decals are on. I will start work on the basket next.

Great work Peter, it's really looking good!

Aiming to get my Fuel truck out and make a start tonight, if the little terrors will leave me alone long enough

Cheers, D
