With A Little Help From a Friend.......More Masters.....

Posted (edited) · Report post

With help from Jerry, a couple of similar projects have appeared on my bench.........

Yup, a couple more Internationals...... ;)

The plan is to have the 4 variations of truck that shared cab stampings.

The first is a CO Loadstar, then a Cargostar A, a Cargostar B, and finally a CO5370 (cab over Paystar)

Here is the first major step on the first one.

Next I cut the back of the cab off, and removed almost 3/4 of an inch.

Then I started to build the side windows. On my original Cargostar, I used the kit sleeper side, and reversed them side to side to keep the front edge vertical, and and the rear sloping. On these, I'm going to fab it all for a better look.

Got the majority of the work done on the CO Loadstar cab. Still have to modify the lower rear wall.

Here is the CO Loadstar next to the Cargostar A

And a shot to show the differences in widths of the cabs.

You will eventually have most of the IH line up in model form.

I never put two-and-two together to figure the Cargostar could be made from the Transtar! My eye saw similar shapes in the door glass and the radius of the body curves.. but I never saw 'the big picture.' Well done !
