DJL Mack Granite Dump Truck - By Christophe Culis

First-time contributor Christophe Culis built this Mack Granite three axle dump truck for DJL construction in Quebec. The resin Granite cab is from Masterbilt Models and it rests on a Herpa Mack CH frame (LWB); the front and rear wheels are from Herpa. The dump body is scratchbuilt to represent a Bibeau dump; the extensions are made of real balsa wood. The decals are from outstanding local decal producer in Quebec, Rick Decals. The photo was taken outdoors using a natural backdrop and an asphalt plant diorama. As far as the weathering goes, it is light and natural; that is, roll the truck back and forth in real rock dust (collected at a local asphalt plant). Beautifully executed!
