14 posts in this topic

Hi !

I would like to know if any one can help me find information about the Mack model "N" with the Budd-cab .

information needed

1- is there ever been a 10 wheels version ?

2- were they all coming with dual headlight ?

3- what is the size of the chrome logo on the front of the truck where it is written MACK ?

4- were they always the chrome lining between the two headlights holder ?

If any one has pictures it would be appreciated .

I will use these info for customising 1/50 scale model of the truck

Regards

The N was built as a tandem.

All N's were built with dual headlights and the trim panel between them.

The Mack emblem on the front is the same emblem that was used on C, G and W models. They are considerably different than the B/H emblem.

The Mack scripts on the side were amaller than standard. These Mack scripts were only used on N's.

Good Luck with the model. Doug

Look for the guy on ebay that sells Mack truck sales literature. It is mostly spec sheets that have a picture of the truck represented in the upper right corner. They are for sale for about 10-15 dollars a piece. :thumb:

Hi !

Here is the project in progress :

Hi !

Here it is ,

I started from an Athearn Ford C series and transformed it

to a 6x4 Mack N Series ( rare sight ) .

1- Ford has one sealed beam each side Mack has 2

2- Mack has a cap for a tank on the helper side

3- Mack has a front grill between the sealed beam

Without any doubt there is other differences but now known to me,

with all the pictures and research I've done it will be as close as I can do it .

enjoy
