Rebuilt 4070a


Recommended Posts

A close family friend of mine gifted me this rough Transtar 4070a rebuilder at a show back in early September. It had 5 thick layers of paint on it, And glue everywhere. It was all worth it in the end once it was stripped down! 

The first few pics are the before, then the after. 

It has Mack R model fuel tanks, Revell 359 front rims and front axle, scratchbuilt the rod/steering linkage, International 4300 rear rims, R.O.G. KW 5th wheel plate and 5th wheel, converted to a single exhaust, and custom made mudflaps. I'm happy sith the outcome and all the work put into it!

Awesome lookin rig. I’m wanting to get one of the current AMT issues of that truck and a AMT tanker trailer, so that I could do my own version of the tanker truck in the first Terminator movie.
