BRBO 2021 1973 International Transtar 4300


Recommended Posts

Here we go. These Ertl kits are so much easier to build compared to AMT Models. I got the frame completed and some paint on the cab and hood today. When the weather permits I’m going to paint the frame. Here’s the Paints I’m using 

Krylon Sweet Cream:   Cab/ Hood

Yenkin-Majestic  Oliver  Green: frame 

Stripes are from Model Truckin that was left over that I cut down.

I decided to put the decals on and call it a day. I also sanded off the IH on the mud flaps so my new ones will fit

Thanks Jeff and thanks for Hosting again. Yes I always liked the Ertl kits feels good when a kit works with you not against you. It’s supposed to snow here in the Missouri  Ozark Foothills tomorrow I may not get the frame painted

I got the frame painted this morning. Now time to let it dry this tractor paint usually takes up to 3 days to dry and cure.

This will be the power plant. Cummins 350 with a 16 speed transmission. The gear shifter always Remind me of a 16 speed splitter with a vacuum cleaner hose spiraling down it in this truck.

Bill. Thanks for the complement seems the old Ertl Internationals got along good with me. I may have to build another if I get this one finished.

Thanks Jeff. You can build at a good pace when your Model kit goes together with out issues like these Ertl kits. If I get done with this Truck early can I start another build?  If not that’s OK
