This is the second car from the Paddy Wagon
/ Beer Wagon kit bashing project. to see the other car from this kit bash
click on the Short C-Cab link.
Most of the parts for the Mack C-Cab come
from the Beer Wagon Kit. The C-Cab back half of the body is from the Paddy
Wagon, it was sectioned about 1/2 inch. The back of the C-Cab was made from
the interior partition with an oval window cut out. The rear fenders were
cut from the Paddy Wagon frame and glued in place. The floorboard was made
with sheet plastic. The frame has been shortened about 1/2 inch, and the
tail lights are rhinestones. Two short pieces of aluminum tubing replaced
the plastic collectors on the headers. A single bucket seat from an AMT
Big Foot truck kit replaced the stock bench seat. The body and frame were
painted with Testor's yellow, and Slixx flame decals were added.
This project was great fun! Planning how
to end up with two kit bashed cars, mostly from just two kits was a good
chalenge. Try it you'll like it!
