Once, I am going to derogate to the title of this topic in presenting some models from Steve, an American fellow collector, regularly sending me pictures of his - typically American - modifications.
"Exkvate3140", that's the member's "name" he chose, has gone away for some time now, following some "verbal" escalation in this forum [...]


Steve's two recent purchases, Mack DM800 tractors produced by Fire Replicas:







As for Fire Replicas Mack B81s, it seems that these Macks rear tandems wheels do not roll freely, hence the mods made by Steve on these models too:

Great pics Guy. Steve is a Mack fanatic. As you can see in the background, he has modified many old Macks. Also, that Fiat Allis HD41B is now a push dozer. He did one for me as well. he does great work for a schmuck. I Wish he would come back to the Forum. I talk with him daily but he isn't coming back. He's a great fellow collector. CAW

Is it safe to assume the fifth wheel of the Mack DM800 was drilled out to accommodate the king pin of the trailers?

RMS Models,

I expected Fire Replicas fifth wheels to be "operational" (that means - for me, at least - able to receive some sort of 1/50 model king pin, whatever type it could be); if not, it is right to assume that Steve had to drill them to hook his trailers to any of these FR tractors. But I'll ask him, anyway.

Regards.

RMS Models,

Here below Steve's answer to your question:

[...] on the trailers I use on FR, DM and Sword/WSI I pull out the king pin on the trailers and fill in with either JB Weld (then when harden drill a 3/64 hole into it) or Styrene tube with a 3/64 hole in it. Cut a 3/64 rod to the size needed to fit into hole and long enough to fit into 5th wheel and super glue in. On DM tractors you have to glue a small piece of styrene on the underside of the fifth wheel right after where the king pin would slide into place [...]. FR don’t have the guide where the 5th wheel slide into place, just a hole so the pin stays in place. Also you can use a bigger diameter metal rod to have less play in the 5th wheel. [...]

Regards.
Guy

Wildpig1234,

The only 5-axle+ tractor I know was a 6-axle Van der Vlist Scania 144G tractor made by Zon Models in a 1/50 scale, but it is difficult to find these days: http://www.mhwsmits.com/?page=03606

I hope this helps.

Construction in progress by Jean-Jacques, using a damaged Minitrucks kit, of a Mack with Beaufrere cab and body with a CAFL-Pinguely knuckleboom wrecking crane:

Didn't know such a thing exist ;)... I guess 6 axle is the biggest tractor you ll be able to find anywher, 1:1 or 1:50? In my collection, I like to start with the extreme big size and work down. So my crane collection obviously already have the cc8800 boombooster and sgc. Still trying to get the ptc... will have it one of these days...lol...

As far as tractor and hauler goes, I guess i will now have to keep an eye out for the 6 axle scania 144g also!

Wildpig1234,

Van der Vlist in Holland used very few 6-axle tractors, which all remained "one-offs" as, if they could avoid the use of any dolly, all required a special neck on the semi-trailer to take full advantage of the large weight transferred onto their 5th wheels: https://pbs.twimg.com/media/Dcf1eV7X4AAFDJX?format=jpg&name=large
These days, European tractors are limited to 5 axles, which remain rare though, and the 6-axle tractor concept has been dropped.

Here is a second example within Van der Vlist fleet: http://ditzj.de/html/en/trucks/scania/hvdvlist124g6as.html

I hope it helps.
