Good luck, I'm starting to get into rigs myself now days as I build one for a friend of mine and I'm starting to understand how they are built. This here is one of the models I would like to take on one day myself. So I'll be watching your progress on yours for the time being. Also  know what you mean about the snow, I'm just east of you and we're getting hit by the stuff today too.

no update but i though that this 1949 international kb-14 looked sorta like a lonestar. could this be the styling? point the nose a little more add lots of chrome a sleeper cab and dual rear axles. do you see it?

The earlier D-series was International's inspiration for the LoneStar's styling, but I do see a bit of a resemblence to the KB just the same. The LoneStar is coming out great!

well around 930 last night i decided ti try and put the interior in the cab not so easy when the paint is still drying(i had set it over a heater vent to speed up the drying a little but not much) its a tough job when you dont wanna ruin the paint. anyway i was successful. heres a mock up. and as always my pete is pictured. forgot to paint my fenders lol.0104132128_zps5671d148.jpg
