Hey Allan - what is that truck carrying? Are you going to replicate it?

Don't see many of these International truck models around so I'm looking forward to seeing this one finished.

Ahhh I have fond memories of these old workhorses. Many lifetimes ago I worked for a council here in Perth and they had a couple of these (twin steer and single) Used to love driving them around the yard (I was only 16) ...until they let me drive the tractors and grader .....

Hi Allan looking good. I'm trying to make a 3070 single drive prime mover. I drove one in the 70's but being new to all this am having trouble mounting the cab. Any hints for a newby.
