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.
