International Transtar 4300 update 1/25/15

04 January 2015 - 12:52 PM

After the untimely demise of my California Hauler (which took a dive off the work bench) , I decided to dig out the International 4300 I started awhile ago . I was going to build it as a day cab but decided to put the sleeper on it . The frame looked too short to me so I added about 1 1/4 to the frame , I used the air ride suspension from an old F-4270 that I had laying around , I plumed the air line the motor is also plumed   .

I also modified the sun visor , I didn't like the way it hung past the cab.

Alclad Question

I have never used this before , the directions say to use water base black paint .

My question is do you have to use water base paint ?

Any help would be much appreciated.




My California Hauler update 11-05-14

This is my shot at the California Hauler. I shorten the frame ,ran air and electrical lines  . I try to make the front axle steerable by drilling

through the ends but I screwed up and drilled through the side . I ended up cutting the ends off and used parts from a Revell 379 .

My plan is to have Buds on the rear and 10 hole wheels on the front. I also closed in the battery box.

I built this straight from the box nothing fancy , I did add aluminum tubing for the stacks and added a sun visor .
