Promoting Excellence in HO Scale Vehicle Modeling

1945 Mack FCSW Cummins Powered Water Truck - By Joe Enriquez

Joe Enriquez built this spectacular Cummins powered 1945 Mack FCSW water truck. Thanks go to Joe's friend Ralph Ratcliffe for building the mold master for the Cummins HBDS-600 supercharged diesel engine for him from which Joe made a resin casting for the detailed exposed engine. The awesome Ratcliffe-mastered Don Mills Models FCSW commercial resin kit was used for the cab, wheels, and suspension parts. The rest was a whole lot of Evergreen styrene and brass scratchbuilding. To view a series of photographs of this special model under construction, check Joe's Fotki album. Some new found weathering techniques were found on the forum site using AIM powders.
