Scale Model Trucks /Trailers /Tractor kits and Built ones.


Recommended Posts

I know a lot of you have built the old Ertl International Tractor, Truck and Trailer kits as well as other brands. Post you Unbuilt or Built or in progress building kits here. Kits you’ve scored lately or like me have had them for years. I’ll start us off with this old Ertl 4200 I built back in 1987 and a AMT International 4300 in progress. I’m planning on to put a Freuhauf Dump Trailer behind that International 4300.

Hi Lee , thanks for kicking this off...... the penny has just dropped😉.... I've seen your 4300 on the modelcarsmag forum . I'm not a member over there but maybe I should sign up. 

I actually met  Dave Carey about 11 yrs ago where he works at Scout connection in Iowa, but never knew he was Dave the model guy.... wish I had spent more  time chatting with him... seems like a pretty good fella and does nice work with those resin castings. 

Im thinking about getting some of his day cabs for lonestar and prostar. 

I'm still getting back up to speed with all the parts and suppliers that are out there now days ... it's been a long time since I had the model kits out  but enjoying getting back into it .

Thanks again 

PS .. we still have an original 4300 stashed away somewhere 🤔... must drag it out Lol

Heath. Your welcome. I’m sure there’s some here that build International Model I’m hoping they will feel comfortable about posting here instead of a regular Model Forum being they been here awhile. Glad you seen that 4300 over there I have a 4200 now I’m working on I’ll post it here when it’s done. Hope you find that original 4300 if so post it. 
 Dave seems to be a great guy and does wonderful work I would like to get his 9300 hood conversation as well as the later model 4300 grille/headlights  and the double bunk sleeper. Hope this thread takes off would like to see some of these guys hidden treasures they have built.

Hey Lee....now look what you have started ....I hope you realise this is all your fault fella 😉🤣

I went on an archeological expedition and uncovered some fossilised remains from the Jurassic era of IH model trucks🙂👍

The Scout 2 kit is still in its original plastic wrapping.....not going to open it .

Dad started the Payhauler back in 198? something......TBC......

SS II  is an original kit,....opened but never started.....same for the 4300.....even found an original brochure in with it 👍👍

Now all I need is a spare couple years to get all these built.....along with some other “projects” currently undergoing R+D in the “Skunkworks” down under.

Enjoy,

Heath.

Thanks Heath didn’t mean that but glad I did some very nice kits there. Guess I’ll have to be next when I get time and post some Goodies

Picked up a few of the New AMT International 4070A kits. AMT has re-tooled the old Ertl molds of this truck. There’s lots of reviews on this New Model kit on the web if you need more info.
