What's in the Box? The new-tool AMT branded International Transtar CO4070A!


Recommended Posts

I have on minor issue with this reissue. Some of the parts have extra tabs on then where they were from the parts tree. they have to be trimmed for the parts to seat correctly , but some of those are so close to a locator pin that when you try to remove the extra tab you take out the locating pin as well!

Do you really need locating pins? :rolleyes:
I usually cut them off so I can adjust until all edges meet perfectly.

X2 or just trim the other way or use a sanding stick or sandpaper.

So you got one already? Mine has not arrived yet.

wheelbase of the kit?

From the Tech sheet that comes with the kit I'd say it either 160" or 184" it has the 83" cab that's the only I  know for sure otherwise.

Since theres a good distance between the fuel tank and rear axles I'd be more apt to say it's 184" with a OAL 261" from bumper to tail end.
