    IH 4300 Transtar color choices

    Paul thanks for the information. Since I am not doing stripes I may go semi gloss black. After frame is assembled and primed I will choose the color. Also I think I will dechrome the fuel tanks and paint them aluminum.

    IH 4300 Transtar color choices

    On the Tri Color Transtar's the chassis was generally painted the same color as the lower stripe, but on all the standard trucks Semi Gloss Black was the basic color but the buyer could option at a few dollars more any color the wanted. You pretty much have a wide range of choices. Paul

    Well got some trailer work done the slider & reefer are by A-line and the slider functions. Also cored out the reefer exhaust with a #80 drill bit Painted 3 wobblies red and a replacement grey wobbly. Still a ways to go but made a little progress. Also got my Detroit 8V71 and my crackerbox inline Jimmy painted in Detroit alpine green. Getting there more to come over the next several weeks.

  6. Afternoon all hope everyone's well. Started my AMT IH 4300 Transtar day cab build. The cab is painted Model Master Daytona Yellow lacquer. I was going to paint the frame Gloss Meadow Green. However I am having second thoughts and thinking maybe a Royal Blue instead. I am thinking that the frame on the standard 4300 (Non Eagle) were painted most likely Black and the Eagle's were various other colors? If anyone has any suggestions it would be most appreciated. Thank you.

  28. This is a model of my first heavy dump truck I bought in 1977. Worked it to death when the frame broke. Cat power from the Revell KW, Autocar dump body and the load is scale horse dung or in reality my wife's potting soil. .
