Here is my start of an old molded in yellow Transtar. It'll be a well worn day driver in New Penn logo.

Wheels and tires. One more to go so you can see what I started with. I bought the wheels from American Industrial models. They are really nice, very lightweight resin pieces, and I got them in a week! Great product and service from this guy.

Yes, AITM is a top notch company. I drool uncontrolably whenever I look at their site...

I'll be watching this build with great interest. I have two 4300's and an older 4270, builtups that I'm slowwwly rebuilding...
