Hello All
 
I have been working on my International Fleetstar. Here is an update on this build. Still need to fit the cab to the chassis.
Got a vacuformed windshield in today. First try too so glad I got it to fit right away.
The pintle hook,  gladhands on the rear chassis, 5 hole rims are from Plaskit.
I decided to put a Detroit 6-71N as diesel engine as powerplant. 
This build is mostly from my parts box.
The color is gloss black for the chassis and Boyds dark red for the body.
Rims are painted white.
 
Here are some photos from my photobucket account:

Hope you enjoy the photos.
Best regards Daniel Gailloux

The Fleetstar cab was originally mastered by Jim Etter. It is now produced by AITM. I don't believe it comes with a windshield.

very nice, the town I grew up in had these in their fleet, same colors and all!

 

Nicely detailed, did you use a complete resin kit or just the truck body?
