I was looking at the WSI website and came across a picture of the Mack F700 Cab Over tractor they are going to produce during the 4th quarter of 2017. I very happy to hear this until I saw the picture. What a disappointment! A European version of a classic American truck.

Here is what they are producing:

Here is what I was expecting (this is a 1/64th scale Top Shelf Mack):

Kcmtoys,

A sample of the F700 to be soon produced by Tekno (found on NAMAC website). It will be made with both types of cab (flat and Aerodyne) in 2- and 3-axle versions:

Kcmtoys,


WSI is not adverse to producing several versions of a particular model, most likely they need some examples/photographs of American versions of the Mack F700 to produce an American version. Hopefully with a few examples and Chuck's assistance, an American version can be produces.

Not a thing, they are very nice. I was just ranting on a European version being made instead of an American. Could you please post a couple of pictures of your F700? Ken

And a day cab would be cool. I think Butch makes a daycab kit, but I'm too old to start making kits again. I just wish there was enough demand for cabovers. I hang onto my Freightliners, Transtars, and Pete Coe. CAW
