On the left is a 379 Peterbilt and on the right is an old International Loadstar. They have both been customized but the Loadstar much more than the Peterbilt!

Yea that International truck was built by a guy in Ontario Canada. The guy is very talented I watched the build but only seen the truck once in person. The guy also had a chevrolet cavalier and put a Northstar V8 out of a Cadallac in it

 

Sorry kind of off topic to your original question

The yellow one is an old IH Loadstar. Didn't look like that when it was new. It wasn't offered as a kit. Maybe one of these resin Guru's can help you out if you are in the market. The Pete, like was stated earlier, you can pick up at most hobby stores
Gonna have to do some fabricating to make it look like the picture

I thought I saw a resin version of that Loadstar somewhere before. I will have to check and see as I always liked that truck.

I don't know about a Loadstar, but AITM has a Fleetstar: http://www.aitruckmo...inter2070a.html

 

As for the 379, GW Trucks offers a nice hod conversion for the Italeri Peterbilt 378 in 1/24 scale, and P&P Resin offers (or did) a 1/25 379 cab kit.
