    CR England

    A-line 53' Reefer Trailer with a Promotex Mack CH 613 Cab. Trailer was custom built, painted and decaled. Top, bottom, front side rails and roof were painted aluminum to match prototype and rear door was painted a darker grey/silver. Reefer unit was left white to match prototype, Fuel Tank was left grey, as well as the landing gear and Rims. Cab was a out of the box Mack CH 613 painted red and decaled for CR England. Also added the details that came with the truck (mirros, grab bars, horns....)

    Market Transport

    A-line 53' Reefer Trailer painted and decaled to match prototype. Reefer unit was painted black, fuel tank was painted silver, trailer floor, suspension, and landing gear were painted grey, top, bottom, front top and bottom rails and tire rims were painted silver. The rear door was no easy task at all, decals didnt go on so well. I need to get some Micro-Sol to help set the decals. I might have to re-do the door with another set of decals also. Also weathering will help cover the "bad decal job" up :oops: lol
