Hi Franck :wave:



I came across this 'Mack AC Bulldog' truck in 1:72 & thought of you. :)

Originally produced in 1916.

They were in great demand due to WWI & loads were to be seen everywhere.





I'm guessing that there aren't that many military vehicle models which would look good on your layout.

But I thought that this fairly common military/civilian truck just might.

RPM Models make about 6 different versions, with different backs & bodies etc. at a nice price !

I like the flatbed ! :)



:Salute:

Hi, thank you for the opening of the new tread.
We have now to use the SIDI FONTANA MOROCCO 1916 scale 1/72 - PART II topic.

The idea of the 'Mack AC Bulldog' truck in 1:72 is a good one.

Thank you for the kind remarks.
On this forum (opposed to other forums) we have real exchanges that help us  to see what are right or wrong,
to share good ideas, ...


Franck

Very good model work, Franck!

If I could suggest slowing down the trains, as in the video they are running very fast for those types of trains.

" I wear a djellaba and a sheshia "


Hi Franck  :wave:


It's always good to see the latest fashions in model railroading !  [whack]

The typical engineers boiler-suit has always seemed a bit drab to me !!  :P



Great work on the layout.  :thumb:

Good to see you with it at the Paris show.



It would normally be worth a  :moose: :moose: :moose: :moose: :moose:  moose rating easily ...

... but in your case   .  .  .






:)



Si.

I agree with you.
I prefer the slow running.

The video was not done by me and I follow always the wish of the cameraman,
so if he wants to run at high speed, I run at high speed.
