Size comparison:

Quite a big model!

The sleeper is really weird proportioned. It's to small, in real life it's a bit wider than the cab. Chassis is too short, real truck doesn't have bonnet mirrors. But overall it's pretty good. Real R700 bonnet, cab looks good, spoiler looks accurate, decals are good (missing the Able Body decal on the sleeper) and some other small imperfections. Also the box says: 1966 Mack, in the movie they used a 1977 Mack. I think this model is based on a R600 that they modified to look like a R700.

It does look like a modified daycab Mack, the sleeper is too far away from the cab and not connected at all :D
But overall it looks very nice, great addition to the collection!

Good spot, it's indeed not connected to the cab! Official licensed Mack product, no idea how this was approved by Mack.
It's a nice addition to the collection, this is the first official model after the movie merchandise toy truck, model truck (that one is horrible, U model with a weird coffin sleeper) and the bonnet ornament. Still hope some day a proper model will be released. But for 26,- euros I can't complain to much. Like it!

nice truck. i think you could modify it and make the sleeper cab closer to the cab, eliminating that gap. still looks like a nice model and price is down to earth also. Congrats!

The sleeper is clamped on, so I think it's a quite easy fix to mount it flush with the cab. I'm going to try it :)
