  5. Have built vigorously in the past weeks Since I want to build all International Cabover Trucks based on the 4070 Transtar, the next one was the 7044a. A relatively unknown version of the 4070. A special feature is the four-wheel drive. The front axle and the one rear axle are driven. The 2nd axle is a dolly that is anchored to the chassis with a fifth wheel via a trailer hitch. My 7044 is based on an ERTL Transtar2 Kit. Since the kit only has rear-wheel drive, the conversion here was complex. Front axle, chassis, dolly, hydraulic brake lines, cabin front, grille, ... Much had to be built by yourself. Greatings from cold Germany,... Juergen The Original:

  20. I read in wikipedia that not all have fiberglas hoods The U was basically a short R, while the DM was an extra heavy duty version of the U often used in 6X4 construction trucks. Like the RMM, the DMM was all wheel drive, but had not only a short hood/offset cab, but also a set back front axle, requiring a model specific fiberglass hood/fender arrangement.
