  1. International Transtar 4300

    Wow very nice. You can never go wrong with a good old fleet truck. Bravo.
  2. B75 Mack

    As do I. Really nice truck
  3. Help needed on my old friend the AMT Mirrors

    Thanks for the tip. I will try that.
  4. Help needed on my old friend the AMT Mirrors

    Thanks for the reply. So I suppose glue the top and the bottom of each frame on to the door AFTER removing the chrome then put on the mirrors? Why they never molded it in one piece I’ll never understand.
  5. Hello all. I have a bunch of semi trucks in various stages of completion. So I could use suggestions on how to assemble my old friend...the AMT mirrors. Specifically for the White series cabs (Autocar, Diamond Reo, Road Boss, Western Star). Obviously the mirrors in the K-123 and the IH 4300 are easier to deal with but these AMT multi piece ones drive me nuts. What is the best glue to use for them? Thanks for any help.

    Wow very nice job. I like it a lot.
  7. Starting my IH 4300 Transtar

    Brian, Very cool thanks for sharing that tip. I do have one other question not related to the 4300 but rather AMT White Western Star related. How do I get the mirrors to assemble properly? They as I am sure you know very well are a nightmare. What glue should I use. Thanks and by the way very sweet 457. I always had a soft spot in my heart for the old Brockway's.

    Brian how do you create the frame?
  9. Starting my IH 4300 Transtar

    Thanks for the replies. I have the Testors canopy glue which I will try. I think I'm gonna cut another windshield out of the presentation cover and see if I can get it a teench straighter. Now of course as I think about more aspects of this build I am now stressing about doing the turnable axle and making the heat swage work properly. My problem is I worry too much.
  10. Starting my IH 4300 Transtar

    Brian yup right down the middle with a slight angle towards the right. I actually taped the two pieces together and used it as a template. Then used the clear cover for presentations for the windshield. Then trimmed it to size. Only question i have now would be what adhesive to use. Good old standard model cement or super glue. Thanks again for the reply.
  11. To all, Good day and hope everyone's well. I just started my AMT IH Transtar 4300 over the weekend. Got the cab, hood, engine, and interior painted. The cab, and hood are Model Master Daytona Yellow lacquer. The engine is Walmart generic brand Fire Red, and Walmart generic brand Flat Black enamels. The interior is Rustoleum Khaki enamel for the door panels, header panel, and floor. The seats, and the dashboard are Krylon Leather Brown enamel. I plan on painting the frame, and the associated parts in Rustoleum Gloss Grass Green enamel. The fuel tanks I am not sure if I will leave them chrome, or remove the chrome and paint them aluminum. In any event I will post pics shortly. Now to the perplexing part. The windshield is mis-molded and didn't fit flush. It was suggested to me to use a hairdryer on a low setting and try to bend it into proper shape. Well that didn't work and it snapped right in half. Therefore at an impasse. Do I try and use the windshield in its current state? Do I try and source a new windshield? Or do I try and substitute maybe clear acetate, or even clear covers that you would bind a report with? I have some of those at home. As always help would be most appreciated. Thank you.
  12. 2019 Round2 Truck Kit Releases

    I do not believe that it has the turbine. I tried to enlarge it but it appears to be the 1972 issue. I believe the turbine was only in the original issue from 1971.

    However look straight at the middle. Since I don't want to shell out basically my grocery funds for a week on an ERTL issued 4070, that Astro 95 may just do the trick. Especially in that livery. I had it back in the late '70's.

    This is what I found on the internet.
  15. 1/25 AMT GMC Astro 95 Semi Tractor Cab

    This is great news. I'm gonna be a happy boy. I read on one of the online hobby shops it has a release date of April 2019. Is this more or less an accurate time frame. I love that truck.
