Promoting Excellence in HO Scale Vehicle Modeling

2018 Mack Terrapro - McNeilus Atlantic Series Front Load Refuse Truck - By Jim Groeneweg

Jim Groeneweg rebuilt a First Gear die-cast Mack MR into this spectacular model. Jim cut the loader arms loose and have them poseable but did not go to the functioning hydraulic cylinder detail. Basically, dismantle and repaint!! Adding an interior from a modified Herpa Mercedes, windshield and side window divisional bars along with clear acetate, windshield wipers, and a fire extinguisher from Boley. The model is finished in automotive fleet colors with A-Line conspicuity safety stripes. The wheels were repainted giving the five hole steel wheel look and changed out the steer tires for a set of Herpa wide rubber giving a slightly improved look.
