My MOC of a 1985 Mack Supeliner using parts from 8486 Mack and 3221 LEGO truck.
Using reference photos I moved the exhaust stacks to the sides and made a smaller sleeper.
The trailer unit has a tail lift as new large red doors are hard to find.
99% completed, just need some red car doors for the cab and 2 more red panels for the trailer.

Cool truck 'AllanSmith', great color and nice design on the tractor unit. It's a nice blend of 4 and 6 wide and I like the trailer's new lift gate. Seems much more convenient for getting it loaded/unloaded. Great job  Posted Image

Nice looking truck.   :thumbup:
   The wheelbase on the tractor seems a bit short though.  The rear wheels shouldnt be right behind the sleeper.

I'm always excited to see a new MOC posted by you, and once again you've created a great one!  I really like the front fenders, I think they are perfect.  Well done!

Agreed, I have now moved rear wheels back 1 stud and it is much better, thank you  :wink:

Nice! Although adding that Maersk truck pic for reference made me yearn to see it in Maersk blue... :)

Been thinking of turning it into a Coca Cola truck so am after some Coca Cola stickers.
I might even make it into the Christmas version as I bought yesterday some 20 LED christmas lights that fit technic holes  :thumbup:

Nice, clean and simple! Love the idea of it being turned into a Coca Cola truck! Could be really cool on the mantle piece for Christmas! :D

Its a nice looking truck, the Coca-Cola stickers help break up all the red and make it look even better.

Its given me an idea, a black rig with a black car to go inside, but do Lego make hair that can match the Hoff?
