Early 1970's C&H Transport Mack FL700's

These two Mack Western FL700's are dedicated to C&H Transportation of Dallas, Tx.
When i was a kid growing up in the 70's we would frequently drive past one of their satellite yards which was in Bordentown , NJ. My eyes would be glued to the back window to see all the cabover Petes, Marmons, Macks, White Freightliners, etc lined up in all their plethora of licensing plates, fuel tax stickers and ICC badging. Lol

The Holtec DAVI plate roller

Worked on this project from beginning to end at Holtec. The amount of time and work that went into the pit for the Davi roller alone was astonishing. The Davi can roll 5" thick plate steel into a barrel.

These pics will be of the tearing down, parts accumulations, and building back up. More than anything, this photo album will probably help me put it all back together right! ;)

1945 Mack FCSW Water Truck

Using cast resin parts from Don Mills Models Mack FCSW kit I decided with the help of the excellent Iconografix book "Mack FC-FCSW-NW 1936-1947 Photo Archive" to build a water truck.
Don's kit which was master patterned by friend Ralph Ratcliffe, is an awesome resin kit in itself but I wanted to try and finetune some of the detail that is not possible to cast in resin.
This particular model will be a Cummins powered version as well.

1952 Mack LTL chassis

I built this truck to represent a Mack chassis that has just left the Allentown, Pa. factory. It is equipped with a 205 1/4" wheelbase and auxillary transmission. The cab,suspensions, and rims were mastered by my friend Ralph Ratcliffe for Don Mills Models . I used Don's resin kit for the above mentioned parts and most the rest is scratchbuilt.

Mack Granite w/ R&S Aluminum dump body

I decided to build a copy of a neighbor's R&S dump body to begin with. His is mounted on a Kenworth W900B chassis. I scratchbuilt the 1/87 body which I later traded away the masters to Bob Johnson at Masterbilt Models (www.masterbiltmodels.com)
He produced them in resin and I believe at this time (April-2006)they can be gotten from Truck Stop Models (www.truckstopmodels.com)The resin Mack Granite is also from Masterbilt Models and available from Trip at TSM.
Here are some photos of the construction.

Miss Sally , a Kenworth W900L

This model has somewhat special meaning. I started it as a W900L daycab that is mastered and produced by Dennis Aust in 1/87 resin and available at www.dennisaust.com

Unfortunately when I got started Dennis informed me that his wife Sally was diagnosed with cancer. I decided to name the truck after her with the hopes that it might bring a little bit of a smile to her face while she was battling her sickness. She unfortunately passed away on Friday , April 14 2006 after a valiant battle. She will surely be missed by her family and friends.
This ones for you Miss Sally.

Euclid Bottom Dump

This is a Euclid 70FDT-89W bottom dumper that is produced by Don Mills Models.It is a great resin kit and being a Euclid collector of memorabilia it is probably my favorite construction piece in 1/87 to date.

Under Construction-Siku Freightliner Coronado

Here's my attempt to legitimize a 1/87 Siku Freightliner Coronado. Don't get me wrong it's a nice offering to begin with but I started to tweak it a little starting with a friend's resin duplicate that makes it easier to work on.
