Thanks for all the compliments :D  wheels are from AITM  American Industrial Truck Models, He has a lot of neat stuff there. I agree with the suggestion of weathering it some too. I've never really done any weathering so I think I'll practice on some old ones and some of the die casts laying around here first, just got Dr.Crankys book too, gonna have to try some of the techniques

Super Truck, Randy!!!
I have saved the pics as an inspiration for mine that I built 30 years ago as a logger, but ruined it with too much weathering - must be restored/rebuilt some day.
Absolutely great what you show us here!!!

Great looking rig. The yellow color really pops. I seen a similar setup on a heavy duty Peterbilt at my local Peterbilt dealer. Looks fantastic!

Fantastic job, Randy. It warms my heart to see a well done International!  :)

 

Just one bit of trivia - when that kit was first produced, Ertl got the instructions, the holes in the hood and the box art for the air intake on the left side hood oriented 90 degrees off. The bars should not be horizontal but rather should be vertical, as shown here:

The kit has never been corrected. By the way, weathering is fun. The picture above is a good example of a well used truck and the colors involved.

 

Keep those Internationals rolling!!

Colors are great & the 12 x 24 boots make it stand tall & mean.  Interesting use of Mack wheels, but spokes are better that chrome junk in the kit.
