Craphaul Mack

Post by Deaf as on Sun 16 Nov 2014, 12:28 pm

Was shifting stuff around in the cupboard this morning so while I had stuff out I thought I'd throw a few photos up.  




I used the Italeri Black Thunder kit,cut the chassis and added an Auslowe back cab wall. It's meant to represent a truck at the end of it's working life but would probably look better on a dio like Shoey's abandoned Road Boss. It's hard to see in the photos but I did lightly sand blast the front to look like stone chipping using a hobby grit blaster. The guards and RH dash are Auslowe, not sure where the rims came from, maybe the kit. The flat front tyre is just a soft tyre that perished on another model.

And here.  I used to spend my days dodging them while I directed traffic as they tipped clay into an excavation.
A lot of them had Vietnamese drivers with selective language skills.

Lots of old R models and Fords around here driven by deaf blokes judging by the amount of hand gestures!
