With the Lonestar on its way, I thought I'd post a couple more of my masters in the works.

First is a 72" Prosleeper. The black one is one I stared many years ago, and I was never happy with it. So, I started over. It is mated to an original Clint Freeman 9300 hood. The white cab is the result of the second try. The roof will be molded seperatly, and I also have a low-rise roof planned. This will drop right on the re-issued Transtar, or Moluminums 9300.

Also, here is an "I" series cab, along with a 9400 series hood. The "I" is loosely based on the old Transtar cab, with a different roof, cowl, doors, and firewall. I have drawings and info for a 9900 series hood also.

The windows and rivet detail wil be added. That is just two nights work on it, so I won't add any small details until I have at least 2 coats of primer on it.

Wow! As a Navistar trucks lover I'm looking forward for 9400 and 9900 models and sleeper. As I see the Transtar cab and 72" Prosleeper would be one piece?

Got a little bit more done on the 9400I. First coat of primer has been shot, and a visor roughed out.

I started with an original Paystar cab (just because it was lying around), and then modified it to match dimensions I measured off of several different cabs at a salvage yard. All of the white in the first pictures has been changed. The hood was completely scratchbuilt from sheet and strips to match the 1:1

I'm not sure about the Prostar/Lonestar project at the moment. If Moebius's Lonestar keeps being pushed back, I'll keep working on it.

Hey, Dave.
Is the bumper finished? I guess side ends need some shaping. I very like the way you do the 9400.

No, the bumper isn't finished. I'm leaving the ends of it until last, so that it fits the wheel openings.

I like your work on the Internationals, they look very correct. I've driven one or two in my time! :D You work on just Internationals or do you do masters of other trucks as well. A Freightliner Classic XL Condo might be nice!! :)

Outstanding work on the Prosleeper. I really like it. I'll definately be watching out for this one when it's released.

Got a little bit more done this week. I reshaped the back of the fenders, and got a quarter fender built.
