You'll have plenty of time to get the new International, I will be starting the offical build thread sometime in mid December. :(

Earl, how did you cobble up that auto rack? It looks great!

I don't really have anything to get in on this with, but I'll certainly be checking in on it, it sounds interesting.

Charlie
The rack on the truck is my design built from evergreen plastic and the bed is a Revell tri axle wrecker
changed to fit my needs.
The trailer is a Revell kit,the front was redesigned as a stinger style and edges were added on the
bottom.
The two I plan on building on this deal will have a lot of scratch building and
some custom work.
A Kenworth & PeterBilt,it's not as bad as it seams since all the time it takes
to design something like this is already done.
Thank you for the comment.
Earl

I'd tentatively jump in with the one truck kit I've got...The Kenworth Canepa kit, and #4 Kodak NASCAR trailer...and the NASCAR Lumina to go with it...long time on the back burner! I'd probably look at going box stock, but we'll see. I'd need time to find a place for such a big set up...I love that car hauler! Man, that is a great way to display your cars!

Got my Tractor and Trailer in today's mail for the build....Its gonna be hard for me to keep the cellophane on them :D

Give me a few more days, Donnie! B) I've been thinking of getting the offcial build thread going on this a little sooner than originally planned. I just have to iron out a couple things on the few rules we will have. :D

No problem, we were all new to truck building at one time! :blink: Just go to the main build thread and let me know what you are entering. :D
