Jerry I was just getting ready to post that I agree with Sam and Jeff. 
Paint it a Construction Yellow with a Dark Green frame and make it a International Transport Inc. I. T. model truckin has those decals and with those AMT Cal. Hauler Decals that would look nice just my thoughts

Thanks for the reply. I have a can of Tamiya TS43 Racing Green in my stash. Also though TS34 Camel Yellow would be a good choice for the cab. Maybe Green front fenders as well.

Okay I sent iamsuperdan the updates,  if I forgot anyone or messed up please let me know asap to change it .  Wish the board would allow me to change them, but guess it's a spam potential. 

Few builders yet to decide on projects, let's dust off those builds you've planned to build and join in !!!

Or Yellow Cab with these decals in Dark Green with a Black outline. Then fenders in either Yello or dark Green. Then the IT decals.

Yes I like these better and it’s one continuous stripe versus the AMT California hauler. I have a set of those IT decals I put on a AMT White Freightliner COE there nice

To give you some advice I would order my Stripe first before I paint the frame dark green so you can get a better match up.

Here my WFL to give you a idea what the decals look like

Thanks for the tips. Nice use of the Road Commander stripes by the way.

Too many ideas rolling around in my head.....someone make it stop!  🤣

Tell me about it!  I have been organizing my new hobby room and the ideas are bouncing around so bad it hurts. 😜

My son wants me to focus on my unfinished builds before starting something new. I told him he was too late, I already committed to the Cannonball cb. 😂

Here is my dilemma...

1- Finish my Watkins trailer to go behind the restored tractor.

2- Finish the International rebuild of truck and trailer, adding the load. (I know, that's a lot of yellow)

3- Start a very ambitious and stretched everything completely parts built 352 that is waaaaay over my head. 

4- Go fresh with a wrecker body I have been hoarding. 

I can come up with more if these are not enough...🤣

Sam

I go with the Watkins trailer looks like a easy fast build then move to the Paystar/Lowboy build you might just get burned out on that overwhelming Pete 352 build just my thoughts

Think I'm in to. Kw snap kit with extra parts. Photo soon.

Welcome along  !  Those KW snapper kits are surprisingly really nice kits  ! The tires on mine were probably the only let down , but easily replaced w am parts .

Very good looking truck Ben ! Too bad it wasnt 1/25 cause I have a full set of spokes and tires from Aitm that I didnt end up using  !

I’ve got 1/32 Auslowe 6 spoke spiders. It will be good to see a few different scales this build off.

I will try to get into this build-off.  Will either build a heavily modified Louisville Hauler or a 1/32 KW T600A also considerably modified.  Both builds have been in the "brain" (for lack of a better word) planning for a few years.

Welcome aboard   !  Let me know before the 1st which you decide and I'll have Dan update the entry list

I will probably do the Louisville Hauler, it will require less modification.  If I have time I will attempt the KW.

I look forward to seeing this build. That truck is on my dream list, just haven't ponied up to get one yet, so I will be watching you build with a little envy. I will likely be using that trailer for my build, but highly modified.
