    • Site Upgrade   11/18/2017

      The Forums will be down, Friday, November 24th starting 8 AM PST for upgrade.We'll probably be down until 1PM PST, but it might be longer. I'm doing a major forum software upgrade, so I expect the forums to operate somewhat differently when we come back online.  Update: I've had a medical issue come up, and this window might not get used. If it doesn't, I'll push the maintenance back to Saturday, 2 December.

    Some of those Ertl Blueprinter kits are my favourite kits to build.  I think they were ahead of their time when they were first released.

    If you are still looking to trade this off, I have the Revell VW Westy camper van.

    I have actually bought the 4300 to use the mirrors, axles, seats, running lights, turn signals and rims to help restore one of my cabovers.

    The IH cabover parts are really hard to find.  When I was restoring mine I bought the windshield from P & P resins and they also cast up the daycab version so you might also be able to buy the chrome parts you need since they cast those in resin too.  The front axle is common in all the IH kits so you may be able to find one from the 4300 or paystar kits.  Sorry I don't have the parts you are looking for.

    The Revell Mercedes DLK 23-12 fire trucks had snow type tires on front and drive wheels.  They looked thin like the AMT Goodyear 10:00 X 20 so I think they will be too small to fit on the Autocar front rims.

    Since its currently available your local hobby shop should be able to get it in for you.  I placed an order with my hobbyshop and they got it in for me in 4 business days.

    Great looking build.  I recently got one for my son, its the rally version.  He is going from full 1/32 Monogram snap kits to these simple curbside glue kits.  I wish these would be reissued as they make a nice transition kit for young builders and experienced builders can enjoy them by adding some extra details.

    Those S Series trucks look perfect with a plow set up.  I remember seeing them on the highways back in the 80's.  I vote plow with dumpbox.

    Cool, Ray is an awesome guy to deal with.  Glad to hear you got some trading done with him.  You are right, the box doesn't matter its what is inside that counts.  Look forward to seeing you build this one.

    Awesome score, when it was out on store shelves it was around $100 so you did very well.  Where did you find that, at a garage sale?
  11. doogie7046 added a post in a topic Questions about builds on the following   

    When I built the box I had trouble with the roll up door so I sanded the edge where it fits in the groove/track and that made it move up and down without binding.  It said use tape to hold the sections together so I used regular masking tape.  Over the years the masking tape dried up so next time I would use duct tape.

    Thanks for the compliments.  I know that an unbuilt kit is pricey and hard to come by so you may want to have a look at buying a rebuilder.  Only the yellow Ryder was a fresh kit, the others were built up junkers that I restored.  In fact I am working on two CO 4070A junkers and two more Transtar Eagles.  Until this kit is reissued builtups can be a cheap way to get what you want on your shelf.
  13. doogie7046 added a post in a topic IH Transtar Eagle II COE- decent kit?   

    Its a great kit, one of my favourites. The only thing I would do is move the battery box back about 1/8 inch or so and also move both fuel tanks back as well to keep them lined up.  By moving back the battery box it allows the front wheels to be in a turned position without hitting the battery box.  Here are a few of mine.  The daycab Transcon is actually the Transtar 11 Eagle just back dated as best I could to represent the CO 4070A

  14. doogie7046 added a post in a topic Looking for tail lights for Revell Peterbilt Wrecker body   

    I did but the kit has been out of production for a few years now so I doubt they will stock parts for something that is not currently available.
