  1. INTERNATIONAL SCOUT II EASY TO CHANGE FROM 72- 1980 WISH THEY MADE THE TRAVELER VERSION.
  2. I recently bought a new KW 900 AREODYNE, AND NOW REPLACED 1 FREIGHTLINER C/O
  3. The 9670 was 1/32 becuse revell had 1/32 trucks Ertl was trying to do what they had with amt s 1/25 trucks (Ertl s EDSEL in history.)
  4. I have been aurguing with my older brother that Ertl never issued a loadstar in 1/25 kit form. I know they made the larger diecast of them,but he firmly belives they made one. Now someone out there maybe makeing resin ones are they? and if so what scale? i know that a while back I saw a resin hood to change the 4300 into a 9400 I think.
  5. My farther also worked for International Harvester and retired from Navistar International thus is why I listed this post. He work at The Factory in FT.WAYNE Indiana untill its closure in 83 he went to the Sprigfield Ohio Factory in 95 retired in 1992 with 31 years, 28 years as a painter. Which reminds me Why did ertl never rerelease the S-series 2575,2674,2674 dumptruck. if anyone knows why they havent? Maybe they were not a big seller for Ertl? anyway do you think that round 2 will reissue them?
  6. If you ever wondered what happen to these two models? why they havent been reissued? heres your answer. The 4070A went on to become the Transtar ll, The die was changed to make the Transtar ll cab. This was seeable in the first issue of the Transtar Il, it carried the same frame and rear suspension as the old 4070a the second issue of the transtar ll went to the walking beam. The 4270's die was also redone to make the 4300 which like the later transtar ll has the walking beam rearend. The hood of the 4270 was lengthened if you look under the hood you can barely see this line, the sleeper was added. Now one could alter the 4300 back into a 4270(4200) just by cutting down the hood,if your skilled enough you could also change the haedlights back by using the headlights from a Paystar 5000 kit which could also be done to the Transtar ll cab as hell but rember the wipers on the 4070 a was below the windshield and the bottom of the cab would have to be filled in as well as it was changed for the Transtar II. The 4070 a and the Transtar 4270 were issued in 1973. these were the first Intenational truck kits produced ever. Ertl which used the blueprints of the real trucks Thus they were called Ertl blue prints models.
  7. A few months back our apartment was broke into and these truks haven't been seen since! MACK CRUISELINER(RYDER VER) MACK R SERIES,CHEVY TITAN 90,GMC ASTRO(CRACKERBOX CAB)PETERBUILT,PAYSTAR 5000 DUMP TRUCK (1974 ISSUE)KENWORTH W900 TWO WHITE FREIGHTLINERS,And A F-2674 (IH S-SERIES) Now With the increse in rent I won't be able to get the LONESTAR kit AS We wont have the extra cash to get one. The only trucks I can afford are At Hobby lobby When they have the 40% off any item coupons.Or to try and trade on here.
  8. This is my plan, get the new 1/25 KW 900 areodyne from revell. now comes the fun paint it up like the movin'on truck I think If the show would have been made closer to the 80's that Sonny may have traded his old KW for one Of the Areodynes choosing to keep the same paint look that his old truck had. Maybe someone on here will do the T/A 600 as Sonys move into the mid 90's also sporting the same paint theme. as for a C/O I dont think Sony would have chosen one. Not say someone couldn't do that though. Aslong as It was KW I don't think he would have gotten any othr kind of make. When I finish the KW900 I'll try to post some pictures.
  9. Well 694 dont go that far our rent went up auto ins also up taking my wife tn dialiyis 3 x a week uses gas. So thats why I am trying 2 trade for trucks on here. So a lone star truck will be harder for me to get.
  10. Our Rent went up which now mean less money 2 buy new kits 694 dont go that far thats why I am trying to trade on here.
  11. I was thinking Sonny Pruit may have traded for w 900 areodyne. may be cool to do as an up dated version of movin on truck .
  12. I was thinking Sonny Pruit may have traded for w 900 areodyne. may be cool to do as an up dated version of movin on truck .
  13. Maybe I will find one someone decided they dont want the one they got I take care of my wife 24/7 shes in poor health so we live on 694 per mo. After paying bills there not much left. Models help keep me sane! Hope a prostar hood shows up to make the pro star.
  14. Not to be a buttusky but IH SOLD THE NAME AND LOGO TO CASE THEY THEN BECAME NAVISTAR WHICH NOW IS NAVISTAR INTERNATIONAL. AS FOR THE F 150 I THINK THE HOBBY SHOP IN ST.MARYS OHIO HAS 1 OR 2.
  15. That would be nice I havent seen the kit only in pictures. i hear it exspensive though! most of the trucks I bought have been under 40.00 case inpoint Just got the Movin' On truck kit somebody had in their collection(he passed away) so his family sold it to a hobby shop here in Nw Ohio. It was still factory sealed and I paid $32.00 Tax included! I Painted with testors quick dry emerld green laquer paints as its hard to find out the true green paint that it was for real!(man I wish they'd bring that show back!)
  16. I don't mean to be rude but I think that the lonestar is UGLY! I wish they would have produced the PRO STAR or even A 9670 from the mid 1980"s My dad worked for International Harvester(NAVISTAR) and I have the 4070 A,transtar 4270(acctually a 4200) 4 transtar 4300's 2 transtar II's paystar 5000 and S-Series 2575,2674's and the Payhauler 350 this dont include the scout II's I have. Dont get me wrong i glad they did a navistar truck ,just wish it was a diffrent one. But could the lonestar be changed into a pro star ? someone please make the parts to do so.
