Balance?

Postby hooknladderno1 on Fri May 30, 2014 5:38 pm

Hi Guys,
Seeking opinions on a potential combination for this scratchbuilt tanker body. Any of you that have followed this saga from the original Mack RD cab to custom built Pierce Lance cab will recognize the body. I just acquired a Models by Dave American LaFrance Eagle raised roof cab in a trade. Mocked it up with a pump panel and the tanker body. I've also included the other photos of the tanker body. Does this look more balanced than the other combinations? Thanks.


David

The ALF looks much better. The other options look way out of proportion, so much so that it is hard to believe you are using the same body behind the ALF.

I agree with Aaron. Proportions are much better. Don't put the slanted top over the hose bed, though. You'll need a step ladder to reach the hose as it is! :D

I agree with Chariots. The Alf cab looks much better with that body. There are a few tankers here in northwestern PA that look very similar to your build.

I agree with all of the above. Proportionally, it looks best with the ALF and best without the tented cover.
