Mack DM800 & B873 Heavy Haul Tractors - By Tom Dickey

Tom Dickey writes us, "What a difference a year makes! These two trucks were ordered by Tom's fictional heavy hauling company one year apart." On the left is a 1966 Mack DM800, an Alloy Forms white metal cab mounted on a Roco frame with modifications plus a plow frame and MV lenses all around. The 1965 B873 Mack on the right is a Don Mills resin kit cab on a Roco chassis that was lengthened in the front and shortened in the rear. It has scratchbuilt rear deck, rear fenders made from Alloy Forms diamond plate material, Denis Aust resin headache rack, Herpa off-road tires, and a Roco winch. The B873 was shown in Photo Gallery 141.
