These rigs are common here in Australia, outside of the cities, where they load sheep or cattle at the farms, and transport the livestock to the nearest livestock market, which in many instances can be several hundred miles, or more, away from the pick-up location.

This particular model is based on 1988 series 2 Mack Superliner, fitted with classic roobar, long-range tanks, & sleeper, hauling a B-double set of twin-deck stock crates.

  • For any member on this site who would love to have a go at building a 1:20 scale model of an Aussie 1988 Series 2 Mack Superliner, simply contact me for more info, as I own the woodworking plan.

Nice work Roger.

In the ‘80s traveling from Emerald to Roma I soon learned to pull off the road when a road train was spotted coming my way. Once, following one of these juggernauts, as one passed the other, coming from the opposite
direction, I could see the tops of the trailers rocking sideways, almost touching.

Common, YES, on country roads and if you see them coming along the goat track we call highways, move over or suffer the shower of rocks….well done Roger…

Those are some mean looking trucks and sound like it would be quite scary on a dirt road for sure.

We make a lot of toys annually, but not in the detail of your truck. Well done.
