PM customs continues his series of leafer style customs with Marathon, a late 80's chevrolet Silverado. Someone with not much knowledge on old school monster trucks could easily mistake it for a real truck. The paint is very "80's truck" style, and while simple, it gives the truck a particular, attractive styling. The black layers are well placed to.
It handles very nicely to, I have tried it on medium and hard suspension and it doesn't lean much on either, making it perfect for circuits/rallies. Works nice on drags as well.
The lights are aligned with the truck body, but here is the problem. The lights that were on the roll bar have been removed, but the light textures are still there, so the roof lights are shining from thin air.
This can be fixed by removing the roof light textures in the "truck editor" in Binedit. This is the only bad point I have found on the truck though.
The wheels are White2098's CMQ wheels (no surprise there), proving again how acclaimed they are among the MTM2 community.
I am pleased to see custom trucks are still being made, and this is a fine example of what a custom should be; a simple yet attractive truck. You don't have change much to get a nice result, and it shows on Marathon.
