Not sure Mack Truck,looks a pretty old standard R600 in Australia.Maybe try


http://www.macktrucks.com.au


That is the Aussie Mack truck website.Or there is an email for a model Australian truck retailer;


mailto:teswholesalers@ozemail.com.au


They have a big range of Australian truck models and they might be able to help you out with specs etc.

Probably your best bet is this site.They have a lot of conversions for model trucks and cars to Australian versions:

If your building a 1:24 scale 3-D property/model, look in the modelling section under My AMC models. I posted the kit numbers of the three kits you'll need to build a tanker. Now, if your building a computer-generated 3-d model, look in the LEGO section at the tanker one of the guys did...it's bonzer.


Note: In the movie, it looks like they used two different R600's. You can tell the difference by the stacks. One set is directly welded by 1x1 square tubing to the cab and has handles welded on the inside of the stacks above the heat shield. The other one has the stacks mounted on a steel/iron framework that is independent of the cab. You can see the detail when the Feral Kid climbs around to say hi to Max. Also note, there is no "plumbing" on either truck, hooking up the trailer air brakes and electrical systems. Hope this helps...
