CA-10 - Mack DM-800 Cab Kit

This is a solid cast resin Mack DM800 cab kit in 1/87 (HO) scale. The Mack DM800 was a great looking and popular type used from the '60s thru the '90s in a variety of heavy vocational applications. The DM series was unique in that the cab was offset to the left from the centerline of the hood to give the driver the visual benefit of a cabover truck, especially when backing up. This is the “800” series, which had a much longer hood with steel swing up fenders and a set back axle. This allowed for larger engines with a more forward weight distribution while the set back front axle helped maintain a tighter  turning radius and more weight toward the front of the truck to help balance heavier loads at the rear of the chassis. This 1/87 scale cast resin cab kit can be used to create an excellent model. You'll need to have some kitbashing and scratchbuilding skills to create a finished model. Kit includes an air cleaner. You can use the “DM-800 Frame Kit”, a variety of my wheel sets,  and many of my other components to create yor own custom model of this classic American truck.
