This review is of a model of a Mack Superliner. 

It is in a Green over Black colour scheme. 


It comes in an outer shipping carton which encloses a Mack branded box.  The model is held within a pair of factory sealed expanded polystyrene trays. 

There were no missing parts or defects on the review model.

Included is a plastic pointer, and a bag containing spare mirrors is a thoughtful touch.

There is no information about the real truck or model.


The chassis is very detailed with the engine and gearbox visible, and hoses run to the rear axles.  The tyres have a good tread pattern, and the wheels are very detailed with flexible rubber mud flaps.

At the front the radiator has a chrome bulldog mascot on top, and the radiator has an excellent see-through mesh grille.  The engine under the hood is made up of a number of different parts.

The cab has very thin windscreen wipers and chrome mirrors with metal aerials.  Air horns on the roof have tiny Mack graphics applied.  The interior is also very detailed.  Behind the cab is a rack with more tiny graphics and realistic looking chains, and there is a light bar on top.

The air intake and exhaust stacks are really good, and the fuel tanks also look great. 

There are lines for connection to a trailer and excellent non-slip walking surfaces.  At the rear there are soft mud flaps.


The front wheels steer, with the steering being 'notched' rather than variable. The range of movement is moderate.  There is working sprung suspension on all axles.

The engine hood opens to reveal the detailed engine. 

The cab doors can be opened to a moderate angle, and inside the seats have an air ride action and can be moved up and down. 

The fifth wheel has a spring loaded lever to secure a trailer in position.  It can also be adjusted longitudinally.


This is high quality model, with a high metal content. 

The paint and graphics are excellent.


It is a premium priced model which is good value for the high quality. 


This is another excellent Heavy Haul Replicas model, and the generic colour scheme allows pairing with a variety of trailers.
