Dave I have 2 questions,

1st, have you done any progress on the prosleeper?
2nd, Dave Metzner from Moebius models just announced that they doing a prostar, as far as you know in real life, do the lonestar and the prostar share the same cab? Will your Lonestar day cab be used with the Prostar or you will make a new daycab for the Prostar??

Greetings from Athens,
Kostas.

Yes, they share the same cab. It will require a different day cab, as the Lonestar has the panels directly in front of the doors (where the air cleaners mount) molded as part of the cab, while the Prostar does not have those panels.

Yes, I will be doing one.

At the moment, the 9400I is taking priority,, as i finally have a couple bugs worked out of the cab master.

Will the 9400i use the LoneStar/ProStar chassis? Is that the best doner kit for that?

The Transtar 4300 is going to be the easiest frame to use

I like it. Now the 9400 isn't offered anymore correct? Only the 9900, right?

I've seen some hood conversions for a 9300, and you're offering a 9400. What's the difference, and what years were these offered? The 9300 conversion I saw used the 4300 cab, so I'm guessing that's 1980s, and your 9400 is 1990s.

The 9300 became the 9900. The 9400 was one of the replacements for the Transtar 4300. The 9200 is a slightly shorter BBC than the 9400 was. All of the 9000 cabs are the same, and have roots back to the 4200/4300/Paystar cab from the 70's.

And..... there were some non-I 9400s that had the I style hood, with the sloped headlights.....

It's allways nice to learn something new (or old) about International from you, Dave. Thank you!
