This review is of a model of a Mack Superliner 6x4 from the year 1986. 

It is in the colours of the Damigella Collection. 


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.  There is a realistic license plate.  The engine under the hood is made up of a number of different parts.

The artwork is excellent with graphics and lines replicating the hand painted artwork of the real truck.

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. 

The air intake and exhaust stack 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 lights, soft mudflaps and a license plate.


The front wheels steer, with the steering being 'notched' rather than variable. The range of movement is reasonable.  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 decent 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 work and graphics are first class and capture the hand painted graphics on the real truck really well.


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


This is another excellent Heavy Haul Replicas model, with the quality of the artwork particularly once again standing out.


This model appeared in January 2024 in a run of 100 models.
