Here are a couple of up to date pics of the Mack cab I am working on. The interior is still fighting, but, I think I've finally got it figured out.

Not sure on an ETA, still have to finish the interior/dash and the cab needs some more exterior details before I'm happy with it. I'll keep everyone posted!

If the demand is there, I will do a canopy cab version, or a matching stationary canopy section.

I know the front end is different, but with the basic shape in the pipe with this one, how much of a departure would it be to do the earlier MB model as well?

This would be a "true" canopy cab. The extension tilts with the cab, and it is permantely fixed to the cab. I would be looking at doing a flat top version of this.

This is a stationary canopy section. You can see the gap between the cab and the extension, right behind the grab handle. Same body contours as the cab, but, it does not tilt with the cab.
