Promoting Excellence in HO Scale Vehicle Modeling

Mack DM600 Tow Truck - By Brian Donato

This Mack DM600 tow truck from Brian Donato was built using a Ralph Ratcliffe Models resin cab, chassis kit, wheels, and snow plow setup with an Athearn tow truck body. Features include photo-etched mirrors, Roco strobe lights, Custom Finishing tool box, a stack of Boley traffic cones, Athearn cab mounted spotlights from a fire truck model, and beading wire for bumper posts. This would be used by a highway department to rescue broken down plow trucks; that's why it has a plow setup up on the front so they can hook up the plow and tow the truck back to the garage. Brian used brushed on weathering powders to give it that workhorse look.
