Rubber Duck Mack - 1:32 scale
I decided to see how good of a model could be made from Revell's Mack R
Snap Tite kit. The result was pretty good. The main problem with the model
is the tires are plastic, and are hollow on the inside, and the sleeper is
too short (it does appear to be an Able Body Co. one).
Nonetheless this is a great model and offers your best chance at making a
model of the Duck's truck in 1:32 scale. The trailer is a newer model
Fruehauf, and also builds into a nice model.

BJ and the Bear Kenworth - 1:32 scale
Back in the 80's i had a remote control (cable, not radio) K-100 and
trailer. It fell apart a long time ago, but i still had the cab and
trailer. A couple of years ago i found another at a garage sale. I decided
to paint my old one and make it into BJ's truck.
After i took the cab off, i compared it to one of my New Ray trucks, and
discovered it was 1:32 scale. So i changed plans and tried making it into a
more scale model. I used the frame from one of my 2 white Pete 379's, parts
from a Freightliner trash truck i just got (allready haved one), a 1:25
scale model of a Mack (the DM600 Ertl tried to pass of as the Rubber
Duck's :/. I don't have the whole truck, just parts from 2), and a little
The hard part was finding a correct photo. I found almost half a dozen
variants of the real truck so i picked one and stuck with it.
Overall it turned out ok. Though some details are wrong. Namely the steps
and handrails on the sides. Also these R/C trucks didn't have an interior.
Just black plastic windows. Total cost was $7 (the price of the trash
truck). I didn't really need that other truck to make it. I could've used
the parts off of the Peterbilt (i'll make a custom out of the trash truck
in the future), which would've made it free.
Hopefully one of these days i'll get ahold of one of the actual 1:32 scale
model kits of the truck that were made.
