Mack W71 1954

Description  

Hello everyone

This my latest model, it is a Mack W71 made in 1954.


In 1954 Mack designed this W71 Mack specially for west coast use. Because of the short BBC measurements of less then10 ft and the use of lots of aluminium components it was a popular truck at west coast truck company’s. First it was designed without a sleeper compartment, later Mack designed a W71 with a integrated sleeper. The ad-on sleeperbox is a after marked part. There where only 215 W71 build, and only a few are preserved.

To build this model I have used the W71 resin kit from AIM. The chassis is used from the reissued AMT Mack cruise-liner. The chassis has a few adjustments such as the fuel tanks, battery box and the rear suspension.

Best regards

Erik Fontein
