These I got from the maker of the truck, Samuel Kraytzer. the original was owned by his dad, Meir, in the 80s. It's one of the F700s which were assembled in Israel by Mack Ashdod, in business between 73-85 and who also assembled quite a few other Mack models like the DM800, R600 (Flintstone and plastic), MB600, MR600, Cruiseliner, Superliner and lastly the Ultraliner). The first pic is of the truck in the 80s on the street where the Kraytzers used to live. Mr. Kraytzer the elder used it all over Israel to transport basically anything and it also did roadtrain duty shifting containers from a container depot in the Negev desert to the port of Eilat on the Red Sea. Model was made from a Cruiseliner chassis, 3D printed cab, bits of cardboard and balsawood. Samuel also has a few other models of Israeli trucks which I posted below. I think the next step may be to make the short 2nd roadtrain trailer which was used under Israeli regs...

Yep... These were US-made before there was the assembly plant in Ashdod, and some of them got extended by a local coachbuilder to create a sleeper which from a distance looks like an original sleeper cab F700, somewhere I have a pic but I'll need to find it. Same bloke did an integral sleeper on a... DM800 which looked a bit odd as you may guess.

Oh, the yellow Acar is also a truck driven by old man Kraytzer, the kid in the pic is Samuel Kraytzer.

These Israeli Macks look different with the head lights in the bumper bar
Old trucks will make you poor but not unhappy

That was due to Israeli headlight height regs which are like the EU ones, but in use drivers fitted lights in the original spots.
