'46 International Rod

Posted · Report post

No, this isn’t a die cast or resin cab (though I’m open to making up a second cab and having somebody pull a mold…), it’s a Revell ’41 Chevy pickup reworked into a ’46 IH, this was accomplished mostly by relocating the door handles, redoing the beltline, reshaping the windows, and rescribing the door lines. Probably isn’t an exact ‘replica’ of the real deal, but a pretty decent ‘lookalike’ anyway. I also massaged the firewall to more closely resemble the Binder piece, too, as well as the dash.

The grille is patterned after a Farmall 300 model, and was made from two halves of ‘55/7 GM stepside fenders. Around back, the bed is a cut-down AMT ’40 Willys piece, and houses the battery and fuel tank. I foil copied the ‘INTERNATIONAL’ nameplate from the grille of a Transtar 4300 kit grille. The frame is scratchbuilt, with traverse spring up front and a coilover suspension in back. I went with Monogram ’40 Ford front wheels and tires for the front, and modified ’41 Lincoln wheels and tires out back. The engine is a Ford 390 with IH valve covers from a Scout II kit, and headers from the Revell Ford 427 Parts Pack engine.

Not much going on inside- a floor, two MPC ’32 Chevy panel bucket seats, and everything else from the parts box.

Only the Warning placard on the tailgate, all the others are spares from kits.

Those are from the Revell '37 Ford pickup reissue, the new version with the '38 grille and hop up parts for the Flathead.
