  1. 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.

  2. Hello

     
    When I saw the photo of the fire truck on the WWW, it was clear that I had to recreate it.

    Now he's done

    The tractor is almost unchanged from the box, the trailer is a conversion from the AMT Lowboy.
    The Catarpilar is elaborately refined and expanded from the AMT kit.
    For the Caterpilar Pics, I still open an own path.

    Wow! I raise my hat and I bow. I have about 1300 questions, but Iwill start with two. How dis you do the TURBOSTAR script and do you have a photo of the engine out of the truck?

    Hello 

    I found Pics of the Truck and engine here: 

    https://www.bigmacktrucks.com/topic/32139-the-turbostar-from-international/

    and the Turbostar script is done with this 4mm letters:

    https://www.ebay.de/itm/Aufkleber-Buchstaben-4mm-Starform-Nr-1000/273129054712?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&var=572394968576&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649

     

    Greatings from germany, Juergen


  5. They are fibre glass . Although that does look like rust to me to :D

    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.


  6. Very nice work Juergen and your weathering is outstanding!! The cracked windows are a nice detail, and changing the chrome headlights to clear lenses makes it more realistic. One thing you may want to add is a "headache ball",  which is just a round 2-piece weight on the cable just above the hook that keeps tension on the cable so that it winds back up evenly. Not criticizing, just pointing it out since I have 2 crane trucks I work with every day. If you need a photo of one I can post it for you.

    Thanks, yes please send me a pic

    I must look for original Truck pics in www. Here in germany we did not have this trucks :wacko:
