    Yeah I had a feeling it wouldn't be usable straight from the box. I just want the overall shape of an International 4400..then I could do all the other mods myself such as stretching it, and such. Were you able to take some pictures of your 4400 masters?

    Alright. Do you have a picture of the Silverado kit I'm looking for?

    By Ford LN8000..do you mean this? http://images32.fotki.com/v1064/photos/1/117425/3710160/31941_AMT_Ford_Louisville125-vi.jpg
    Also, if I've found the Chevy engine on Ebay, do I still need the Silverado?

    Also, I just got my order of Evergreen sheet/stock today..ordered a couple of the "Odds & Ends" bulk packs along with tube and sheet assortment sets so I should be pretty good to get started scratchbuilding whenever I find a Ford kit for a chassis to mess with. (Any chance that someone here has a parts kit sitting around I could get off you for a good price?)

    Where'd you get the resin rear wheels? I'd love to get a set for a scratchbuild i'm working on..I think they might work for the wheels on the truck in this pic: http://picasaweb.google.com/anthony.masterchief/ModelBuilding#5453179807251959874

    Though the ones in my pic are 19.5"'s..I'm not sure what size yours are.

    Please let me know..

    I'm after the 2003-2010 cab design...I may actually end up scratchbuilding...just because the cab available is somewhat pricey for something I'm going to be chopping up. I will however buy most details aftermarket...but I supposed scratchbuilding truck components is much easier than aircraft components...so I should be ok. I've got a bunch of drawings and photos so I think I've got it covered. Just bought a huge stock of Evergreen plastics online..so I can get started as soon as they show up.

    Got pictures of your work Bob? I'd love to see what you did...
    And thanks for the links...I've managed to print out a small stack of measurements/drawings for the truck I want.

    Perfect! I printed off some spec sheets...and I've got a couple of good hi-res top/side/front/back view shots that I've been measuring and scaling to size. Thanks for the link!

    Impressive builds guys! Thanks for sharing.
    Does anyone have access to three-view drawings or any dimensions in general of the newer model Kodiaks and Topkicks?
    Someone shared a few 'body-builder' PDF links in my International 4400 thread..was hoping maybe there'd be something similar for the Topkick/Kodiak.

    I didn't see a crew cab version of the 4400 cab. There is only this: http://sourkrautsmodeltrucks.com/?page_id=3&category=2&product_id=5
    The only International crew cab I saw was the 4700, which is not the one I wanted to make.
    I got your PM though...reply on the way.

    Personally, I love the look of the smaller wheels, but I have no idea why they use them on the 1:1 trucks.

    2000-09 International 4400 Crew Cab
    Hey guys, some of you may have read up on my questions regarding two truck builds (International 4400 and Chevy Kodiak/GMC Topkick)in my self-introduction thread below, so I apologize for the reposts but I feel that if there's a dedicated thread, readers might be more likely to see the topics.

    This is the second truck that I'm looking to make for an online competition. My main inspiration is this picture: http://www.amickequipment.com/quicksale/MVC-708S.jpg (the description for the picture was "International 4400 Crew Cab"). I'd like to stick to the photo as close as possible - with the 19.5" wheels/tires and plow frame at the front. That said, I am having some difficulty getting dimensions/drawings of this vehicle and also finding possible donor kits/aftermarket parts.

    Having never built a truck model in my life, but armed with scratchbuilding experience on aircraft and armor models I think I should be able to tackle this project along with the Kodiak/Topkick.

    Any leads are appreciated, again, I'm totally new at truck modeling

    So, I'm trying to build a model of a a Chevy Kodiak or GMC Topkick (essentially the same vehicle I'm led to believe?). This photo was my main inspiration: http://www.frankscustom.com/images/IMG_1737.JPG (watch out it's pretty large)I'd like the built the crew-cab version, with the 19.5" wheels/tires as seen in the pic.

    Having never built a truck model in my life, but armed with some scratchbuilding experience on aircraft and armor models I think I should be able to tackle this project.

    However, I am having some trouble getting dimensions/drawings of said vehicle and also finding possible donor kits/aftermarket parts.
