What Can Brown Do For You? UPS Mack Vision Progress Update

I don't know how I manage to get any hobby time lately, and especially during this Christmas season.  A truck project seems to take many days, with small chunks of work time as I can find it.  I have tried to keep myself very organized and focused on a very small number of projects, so I can increase my chances of completion.  I have found that shooting a couple coats of paint before work helps, as the model is ready for more steps that same evening.

Anyway, I added exhaust stacks to my Mack Vision pair this morning, and decided to take a few quick photos of my progress.  I think they are looking very nice.  The UPS, I mean "parcel service" decals are from a fellow modeler that I met via email.  What a great source for something that doesn't exist commercially.

I have a bunch of photos from other N scale addicts that have finished their own versions of my truck designs, and I just haven't had the chance to organize them and post here.  I am noodling the idea of having a public photo gallery where others can posts photos of their own models.  Of course, it would need to be moderated, or protected from inappropriate posting and behavior.  Anyone have any ideas for me?

I'll get some better photos once I am done with these guys.  The lighting is critical, to get the brown right.  This is just a quick set of photos to show my progress.


  1. Lookin' good! I'll need to grab some of these on the next shapeways order.

  2. If you are wondering where one of your Vision parcel cabs went. I think I may have an Idea. lol got one instead of the peterbilt day cabs.
