The truck looks cool Allan, but I reckon you had something really unique when it was a pickup. It's interesting to see how these models develop and progress over time.

pickup

Post by allan on Fri 01 Aug 2008, 7:34 pm

the R190 is been worked on,taking paint off it as it was to thick and lost some detail in body,will be painting it the same as B61,both will have short wheelbase and single diff under them.

I know where there is (or at least was) a real one of those sitting in the scrub by a minor road , it was responsible for me getting a speeding fine too many years ago (rule number one , never stop and look at car's when you're running late for a business meeting , it only makes you later) I should go for a drive and check out if it's still there . Bare shell and chassis but awesome start for a rod .

Be keen to see what you do with this one Allan .

bump this one up for Adam to look at and show the R190 is the same size cab as a B61 Mack cab.it gives a idea to build them as hot rod pickups.
