Great pictures of some might fine looking hardware.  A gentleman in my neighborhood has one of the older IH pickups, he drive quite often.  I hate getting behind him because it does smoke a bit and I believe it definitely is "granny-geared", top speed behind him is never over 45 mph.

 

Maybe I am missing something, but I wonder about the yellow log-hauler.  I do not see any way that load can articulate.  How does it turn?

Thanks for the great pics. Looks like a good gathering of IH. Wish I could have been there. Maybe some day when the kids are older. I probably would have spent too much money anyway.

Each bunk (the things the logs are resting in) pivots as the truck turns.

I can not believe someone built an IH mobile home toter almost exactly how I’m building mine! ( the 1/25 one in the last pic.) The only things different is that mine will have white front fenders and chrome two hole wheels. Even the bed I built completely from scratch looks exactly the same?? Just when you think you’re building something unique!

That and the kit's in the display cases were all made by the Late Bill Eichhorn. That 4300 logging truck is highly detailed! and needs to be seen in person as do all of his IH build's

Outstanding builds! His toter is a lighter duty than mine. Looks like he used old Pinecrest Resin cabs on it and a couple other trucks in those pics. Does the museum own them now?

Just to clarify, yes, Bill was an excellent model builder. The trucks mentioned below are the ones he built, mostly using resin castings from his Pinecrest Models Company, he was a true master modeler:

Built Models – Bill Eichhorn – 1961 – 2012
Honoring a friend too soon departed

Bill was a close friend and excellent modeler in several hobbies. Model trucks were his major building focus but he also built cars, trains, ships and planes occasionally. In the ’80’s, he started, along with his father, a model truck and car resin conversion kit company called Pinecrest Scale Models, long since out of business. Listed below are some of his models that his father gave me after Bill’s passing.

1910 International Auto Wagon – Revell 1:32 Scale

1978 International Trailer Toter – Resin 1:25 Scale

1978 International Tractor  – ABF Resin 1:25 Scale

1984 International F-9300 Tractor and Livestock Trailer - Resin 1:25 Scale

1990 International 8300 Aero Straight Truck – Resin 1:25 Scale

1990 International Dump Truck – Resin 1:50 Scale

2006 International 4400RV –  Plastic Toy Modified 1:24 Scale

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The models below are the models built by me (David Palmeter). I was fortunate to be the guy at International Trucks in charge of Product Information so I worked with the model companies when they wanted to do an International model, in return, I got very early test shots:
