Based on an ” Old School Mack Superliner,” hauling a big custom van, and with working LED Lights.
The customer, ( from Perth, Western Australia ), loves the Big Mack Trucks, & has paid me a decent sum to custom build this beauty for him. Even the artwork on the van is Custom designed,- some woodburnt on, some painted with Artist’s Acrylics. The project has taken me a good year to complete,- building it inbetween other smaller Truck orders.
Dimensions, ( she’s H-U-G-E ),- 1.9 metres, ( 76” ) long x 245mm,( almost 10” ) wide, x 420mm, ( 16” ) high. All the doors open, and there’s even a mattress & pillow in the bunk !!

Enjoy the photos.

Pjonesy;- 100% agree with you. Have done several other 1:20 scale models with artwork on the sides,- but nothing like this one.

  • Must show the model I enjoyed making the most,- a 1:15 scale T908 triple Road-train for a 9yr.old Adelaide lad who wishes to be a Truck Driver like his Grandpa,- but cannot as he only has 35% vision and is legally blind, so I custom built a big triple for him as a surprise, with some Aussie Road-train Drivers chipping in financial assistance to cover the cost of the materials, & I donated my time.

Roger,

What does one say? This is just super fine!! Every where I look at it. One question. Why is the fresh air intake so high up? Do the trucks travel on dirt back roads? Ok, two questions.

bruce317,- Most of our Aussie Rigs are the same as we have thousands of miles of dirt, & dusty roads in this country, and diesel motors don’t like swallowing dirt,- see photo;-

This tractor trailer is a beautiful piece of craftsmanship. It’s very nice and a lot of details.

THose lights really make this build. I had to do a double take when looking at the pics. I thought it was a full size Semi Truck with the lights on. Nice build

Alan72;- Believe me you are not the only one who has thought it was a real Semi with all the lights switched on.
