Dave's Mack B-81 Rig

POWERFUL BULLDOG
A Mack B-81 tractor, lowboy trailer, and bulldozer.

SHOP OWNER: Dave Nichols
LOCATION: Palmerton, PA

    I made this trailer and bulldozer from plans I bought from Toys & Joys. I wanted a B-model Mack for the tractor so I found a real one, took pictures of the sides, front, and rear. I used my darkroom and enlarged the side view until the wheels matched the wooden wheels I had. I made prints and used them for the patterns for the truck cab. The vehicles are made from poplar. The green finish on the Mack is diluted Delta Cermacoat paint and the yellow on the dozer is a stain I bought at Woodcraft. The final finish is several coats of lacquer.
