Mack "R" Conventional and Fruehauf Tanker
Posted by FenderMender on Monday, June 23, 2014 8:34 PM

Stopped by Michael's hobby store a while back and came across this 1:32 scale Monogram Snap Tite kit of a Mack "R" Conventional and Fruehauf Tanker (85-1961). The box had been opened and a few parts had already been put together. The price was enticing though. Regularly twenty five bucks at retail but this one was marked down to six fifty with some missing parts. At the counter the clerk said four bucks after I showed him the sticker indicating the missing parts! Spending time to detail this kit was definitely worth the effort. I started by painting the interior of the sleeper although it cannot be seen unless the two side windows are cut open which I thought about doing AFTER the cab was assembled. Blackwashing the grille helped a lot as well as "chroming" various parts with a silver marker. All the graphics are stickers and are not water slide decals. These are sort of hard to work with and are not as presentable as water slides, leaving unsightly edges if not trimmed closely to the art and clearly showing fingerprints if not carefully handled. For folks familiar with the modest size of 1:32 scale automobiles, this big rig will surprise you, measuring almost a full two feet in length. Thanks for looking...
