OK, As seen in the 'Parts Bay' thread, I have a few new MACK CF Projects started
Here is A Quick view of them.
This Tanker-Pumper is basically at the point in the 2 pics.
Though I have Started on altering the Springs for the Tandem Rears
I am not sure on fitting the front of the tank but planned on having it Overlap the Pump Compartment
where it is taller, and simulating that it extends into the compartment below the Reel lines
I was hoping to adapt the Monogram Tank Trailer to fit, But...
I Am still looking at using the Ladder from that kit for Fill cover access
IF it is long enough to fit all the way down to the Tail-board!
This is the Tanker Chassis, but Both are done Identically
2 Kit Chassis Spliced together with a Scale 4 foot center to center axle spacing
Here is a First look at the Pumper-Tanker
Yes the Upper segment is a Third Pump Body!
I did have to replace the Wheel Well with compartment doors
And, Yes, I Do have another segment ALMOST ready to glue in place
to complete the Tank/hose bed area
I just need to let the plastic Harden where I cut off the Hard-Suction Trays,
Smoothed the Sheet Metal, And filled in gouges.
I am not sure what to put there though so I don't have a Blank panel
1 or 2 Axe??
a Hose roll??
On the Right side I can add a longer ladder!!!
I would like to know if any of these type Pumper-Tankers came with the
Pump Compartment left at standard size, Height?
or were all Extended to the Hose bed height???
I know the Leetown/Alloy Forms Pierce Pumper-Tanker has the Pump Compartment Raised
But that makes the Booster Reel line slightly out of reach!!
That is My Justification on Not raising them here.
Not to mention The work needed to Alter the Pump panel!!
Add or remove Intakes & Discharges,moving handles, etc!!
Here at the Tail Board area you can see Two sets of Tail Lights
1 pair will be Amber Turn Signal/4way flashers
the other 1 extra pair can be Alternating Red flahers
Here is a Comparison of the Pumper-Tanker and a Standard Kit Pumper body
This one Will be a Nice size rig!!!
