Great to see the progress!

I like the engine look painted that color. Strange thing (nothing strange but an optic illusion) the engine looks greeny in the first pictures but much more to blue where it's already in the chassis.

I must have forgotten that your truck is a smith truck.  It looks great so far.  What number was it? Are you painting it in the Smith livery?  Would you post a before picture please?  Thanks. Mike

I add my vote to the request :)

Never knew the original truck belonged to Smith. Interesting.

It is a very greenish color, the blue is just because of the camera.

What years and what engines did Mack paint in that color? I really like how it looks.

Good question. I'm not sure how accurate this color is, I think it's just an eyeball match.

Actually the Smith truck is just a parts truck; I'm using the frame rails and rear bogie from a tandem and the cab, engine, and other parts from a single axle that I have. The color I picked is a teal blue. I think the Smith is number 160...it's got more rust than steel in the cab. I'm using the front axle, transmission, and some other parts from it.

That’s cool.  I’d love to see more photos.  Would you consider selling me some parts when you are done with your project?  I have an H69 that could use a few this.

I may be selling some parts, but at this rate it will be a couple of years before I finish this thing.
