Since I finally started up a photobbucket account again I thought I would post a couple of my favorites.

First one is a First Gear Mack Granite. I removed the headache rack, drilled the fifth wheel hole slightly and hooked it to a Sword East dump trailer. I also changed the trailer wheels to First Gear to match the Mack.







The other one is an ASAM Mack CH600 on the same trailer. I need to buy another trailer and change wheels on it too.



Post some of yours, keep it rolling.

The Sword East dump trailer, that's as good as it gets. I have 5 and would like another one or two someday. I only changed the wheels on the one that goes behind my Macks.

2 custom 357s and 1 custom 379 pulling Sword East dump trailers, the 5th one is behind a stock Sword 379 lowboy tractor.

Claus nice shots of your fleet, and totally agree about the East dump trailers they are top notch.
As far as favorites I have many but have never been able to post pictures. In equipment I have a Koehring 666 excavator and an ATM Buffalo Springfield tri roller. In trucks I just got a Renault 4 wheel drive road tractor from France (Thanks Guy) and all the Pete, Kenworth and Mack tractors from Sword, nothing compares to them until Chuck produces the Mack DM800 tractor or ten wheel dump with the 58k rear ends.

No wonder I can't find a East Dump at a fair price. You bought all of them Claus. They are one of the best detailed and well built models ever. CAW
