DJL Construction Mack Granite Twin Steer Dump Truck - By Christophe Culis

Here's another of the continuing DJL Construction truck series from Christophe Culis. This time it is a Mack Granite twin-steer dump truck, it was shot on the DJL asphalt plant diorama earlier this past summer. Christophe used a Masterbilt Models cab mounted on an extended Mack CH frame from Promotex lengthened to receive a 19ft dump body. He built the dump body, which is based on a Lagacé prototype (a well renowned dump body manufacturer in Québec known for its 18 or 19ft dump applications for 12 wheelers) and the traditional stainless steel fender around the second front axle and the steps. Extensions on the sidewalls of the dump body are made of balsa and painted red as it is customary for the DJL dump truck fleet. As usual, the decals are from Ricks Decals.
