Started a new build, it's an AMT international transtar 4300, building it as a daycab, and also installing a 3406b CAT. I bought plaskits resin 72" Hendrickson suspension to give it a heavy haul look. What a great job Dan does at casting as well!! Plan to make it similar to the western star I'm also building.

Should be nice with the Canadian Spread on the back.  Are you going with the 10-hole disks all around?

Well some progress, shoe horning the 3406b CAT into her from a revell peterbilt. It fits in their great, little tight around the starter and the frame. But looks a lot better than the old 903 cummins haha.

Good upgrade with the engine.  The engine in the kit isn't a Cummins 903, it's an International V800 (also known as The Boat Anchor).

Here's my latest progress, I added about a 1-1/4 to the frame, still unsure If I'm gonna add the bunk or not. Add some more weight to it to slow the kitty cat down haha

Also just to point out the engine in the Revell Peterbilt that you are using is an "A" model,not a "B".

Got some more for to my international, painted and did a little detailing on the CAT, did a slight black wash on the block to look a little oily. Paint on the frAme is duplicolor ford cardinal red. Still a little unsure what I'm goin to paint the cab and hood, I used a bumper from a bill sighs peterbilt.

I think it might be my fifth wheel plate lifted a bit, because all the wheels sit level and everything, may be the angle too, but I honestly have no Idea, thanks for pointing it out to me tho!
