This one is a combination of the DM600 kit and the R-Model kit. The rear tires, rims and suspension is from A.I.T.M..

Well done.  An exterior post van or double trailers?

Overnight always had clean looking equipment . The brand new CB antenna with the red tip is good detail .

Thanks! I finally have somewhere to display some trailers, so maybe an exterior post 40 footer one day.

Thanks! We used to have several antennas like that, and I guess I just like modeling that style because of memories.

Great job Brian, never been a huge fan of the off set Mack (as a tractor, don't mind as a concrete mixer) but you sure captured the look of a nice livery, nice mix of kit and aftermarket parts to make it look grand!
