I have this one started now but it's going rather slow. The cab is a 1/16 Ertl International diecast cab from the 70's. The trailer is a Wyanndott pressed steel trailer for the early 50's.

As you can see the cab has been well played with a painted several times.

Here is the cab cleaned up and shown with the tailer as found.

WOW!

Very cool combo Tom!

Oh, glad to see you back here, all it took was a new section for different model types, huh? ;)

I have a feeling that rig would have been worth a few bucks to a toy collector, even in "as found" condition. :o

Thanks,

I stripped the paint and brazed up the corner cuts on the trailer. Also did some bondo work and primer today. I also cut the door lines it the cab, these came with almost none showing.

Thanks Guys.
I'm not sure on the color yet, probably why it's going so slow. I was thinking Oliver tractor colors, the dark green and clove, light green almost white used on the Oliver wheels. That way I could use it as a hauling truck for a couple of restored Oliver show tractors being 1/16 scale.

It's a little large for 1/18 but I do have a few 1/16 cars so I could go that way as well. ?????????


The truck and trailer measures 24in long.

That would be sweet . I had painted my 74 sears garden tractor with Oliver paint from tractor supply company a few years ago . Nothing like going green.lol

The ends of the diecast bumper were broken off so I cleaned up the break and made a new brass bumper. I'm using 4 - 1-72 hex head screws to mount it to the truck. I plan to BMF the bumper then do the bolts after installed.

Thanks

Now comes the never ending hours of getting an old high mileage truck smoothed out.

I'm not going to go all out detailing this one. I like to keep most of the original look of the old toys so they have the aged feel about them. That said, I am going to add some simple mirrors to the truck.

It's an International Loadstar 1600 for the 70's.

Worked on the fifth wheel today.

Cleaned off the rust and removed the latch, spot welded a new release arm on and riveted it back together.

The arm is the belt clip off of a Sheffield box cutter type knife. You Never throw anything away :P

Wow that's pretty inavative using that knife bit. I knew that truck looked similer to one of those trucks. I want to find a replica of my 59 f100 I know there is a dicast 1/18 but it's 4x4 .
