This one might end up with an 8' Wood dump body, and if that happens, maybe some six-spoke cast IH wheels.

Price went up to $24.99 and there is no link to buy it online. My store never even had any.

Best way to strip one? Small screwdriver, a good, sharp hobby blade, and a little bit of careful pulling and prying. On the one I'm working on, the only problem I  had was the retiner screw for the dash snapping off when I tried to remove it- no big deal, just glue it back in. I did manage to break the firewall and steering column while removing the doors- I'd suggest getting those pieces out before removing hte doors if you have to do that.

Either of these products will strip the paint, but I prefer the one on the left, made by Klean Strip

i got one last week they were on sale still. I got the last one, these in other forms are $40-50 trucks! Also I stripped the logo off and now it looks very nice. Funny how at 12 bucks they are like half the price of a kit lol. Here is a custom International made for the auto show a few years ago. They put a MaxxForce 7 390 Cube Diesel 4 valve heads in it with a redone chassis.

You guys can go on Tractor Supply website and find area locations. A few phone calls and they can hold one for you. My area here in Indiana has about 5 stores. The one in my town happened to have one. As an aside they also sell some awesome 1/64 scale vehicles rarely seen like this International pick up

And this Wagoneer both have great proportions and detailing

Removed the door tampos, buffed it out, and blackwashed the hub caps. Along with the larger Revell '50 Olds tires, I think it's good enough for my display case. I bought the 1:64 ones back when they released them, Johnny Lightning has been bought out by Tomy now, and no one knows whats in store for them..........hopefully we'll see more. Great line of small diecasts.

Looks good Al, nice & shiny B) 

 

How did you go about taking the logos off of the doors without damaging the paint?

Carefully, with some 100% acetone on the end of a Q-tip. Then polished it out.

Non Acetone nail polish remover works great and won't harm the paint.  Please note that the nail polish remover is dated, old stuff is worthless.

Just curious- anybody know of a set of six-spoke IH cast wheels, in resin or whatever? Uptown Automotive used to sell a set, but I just e-mailed Jim Amado and he says they'll be out of production for a little while.
