International Unistar CO-7044a

Recommended Posts

Have built vigorously in the past weeks

Since I want to build all International Cabover Trucks based on the 4070 Transtar, the next one was the 7044a.
A relatively unknown version of the 4070.
A special feature is the four-wheel drive.
The front axle and the one rear axle are driven.
The 2nd axle is a dolly that is anchored to the chassis with a fifth wheel via a trailer hitch.

My 7044 is based on an ERTL Transtar2 Kit.

Since the kit only has rear-wheel drive, the conversion here was complex.
Front axle, chassis, dolly, hydraulic brake lines, cabin front, grille, ... Much had to be built by yourself.

 

Greatings from cold Germany,...

Way Cool!   I had to look it up.  Four wheel Drive and a Jifflox dolly.  You model is well engineered and well done.
