What you have there isn't a 4300, it is the rare 1st issue 4200 (F4270) kit with the Cummins V903.

Nice save !!!

The 4200 (F4270) was the first Ertl International conventional kit. It shared the air ride suspension the original Transtar (co4070) kit had. Power was a Cummins V903.

The chassis was molded in black, cab and engine in light blue.

4200 or 4300, what ever it is, you still have done a great job saving it, and building something that is unique, well done, I like it

Well done! I especially like how you worked the sleeper into the utility body, that is really clever. I'm glad I saved all those sleepers from my day-cab projects :)

That's a great looking build and the 4200 is probably a better choice for that style of truck than the 4300 is anyway.

To top it all off, I think this truck kit was the only one with the Cummins V903, rare beast indeed.

I wanted to do something different than just a stock big rig. Thanks

Odd.....I found another old build that I had never seen, before.....This is a great piece of work.....Very nice, indeed....It's only had a few replies, so I'd venture to say many of you haven't seen it either.....Great job, Grzegorz.....
