Mack Anthem problem.

Kev80eKev80e Rutland U.KMember Posts: 44
I'm building the Mack Anthem and have come across something that means either I've gone wrong or its a design small annoyance.
When the cab is at 90 degrees to the trailer as you straightened back out the rear light/number plate section catches on the mechanism for the trailer support wheels and can get pulled off.  
 I've altered the front of the trailer so now where the bit attaches to the cab is further forward by just altering the order of the bits in that area. 
Is this me gone wrong or has anybody else noticed this ?

    Took another look and wasn't happy with this solution as it exposes some of the bit the trailer attaches too. I've checked the build instructions again and it was correct.
    I've now put the trailer as it was originally and moved the whole assembly on the cab that the trailer attaches too back one hole. Seems ok now although it could do with another 4211449 grey bit to cover some of the drive mechanism , or am I just being fussy now ?

    Following.  I’ve only done the tractor so far, but once I get to doing the trailer I’ll have to check this as well.  Thanks for posting.

    I would appreciate that. Not a problem if it's just for display but as I'm planning on making it RC it is irritating.

    The garbage truck has a few technical issues as well, noticeably the compactor/pusher likes to get stuck when you first start to make it extend, likewise, opening the top dump loading door too far (90°) makes it pop off.  Still pretty amazing for what we're working with.

    Have you found anything more on this?  I still have yet to open he bags to build the trailer.
