international emeryville

Post by danny on Sun 14 Mar 2010, 2:22 am

this one is fresh from the bench,uses a cab from tbs which i rebuilt an old 4300 transtar chassis as the donor,scratchbuilt taillight mounts,tanks,turntable plate plus lots more





after finishing up the truck last week i decided it needed a trailer so i dug out an old ertl gravel trailer from the grave which had no tailgate broken front axle and other small parts,i removed the front axle as i thought it would look better as a tandem as the tri it looked kind of cluttered being such a short wheelbase,reinforced the landing legs and added a crank and handle,toolbox and made up new hungry boards,the trailer i had previously plumbed it so i left it this way,i also added a hyd oil tank and line to the truck,

im happy with how it turned out as besides the cab the whole thing was built using spares and some scratchbuilding
