Mack N Cabover Info Anyone?


Recommended Posts

Hi all

I'm new to the club; great looking site so far! I am a model builder by hobby and plan on doing a scale Mack N. As a reminder then N cab was built by Budd and so is identical to the Ford C cab.

In particular, if you have any pics of the chassis (scans from brochures will be fine) I'd be grateful!

BTW, here's an example of one of my projects. A B81.

Hi Trent

I'm looking for pics really. If I can see something, I can model it. Basically, what the frame and interior look like is the info I'm looking for. I have a good idea of how the END [sic] engine and its plumbing looks like. There is a model kit of the Ford C800, and so how much to convert the Ford's frame (or scratchbuild a new one) plus the changes needed to the interior, are the modeling challenges for this project to date.

what info are you looking for I have a friend with a N model Mack. I can give him a call with some questions

Many thanks!

Evan

Many thanks for the kind words, Mark. I love that stake truck! Very short hop to the Ford C stake truck kit. I still have a tractor in mind, though.

Attached are two more pics of one of my favorite Macks...the mighty "Superdog".
