    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

    1967 Diamond T DAKAR Rally Truck

    A little up date as this week is local runs. Made up the folding ladder for access to the storage in dummy box and also got the air intake plumbing made up from bits I've been saving. Hosted on Fotki Hosted on Fotki Hosted on Fotki Hosted on Fotki

    I'm very impressed of the detail in that scale. Nice work. Paul

    A Diamond T just looks so well with a sleeper. Like the moons on the rear also.

    1967 Diamond T DAKAR Rally Truck

    Not a support unit. It ran the full rally and beat many, many other vehicles entered.
  7. 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. .
  8. Been working on this on and off for a few years. Dragged it out popped the Detroit 8V71T out and re painted the chassis Rootbeer. Fuel tanks are modified Mack units and the wheels and tires are from the AMT Ah64B Autocar. Assembled the interior that was painted a few years ago with a AMT Corvair Rally panel for the co driver, added the guard over the roof AC I made from brass with only a dozen or so tries. Playing now with the none dumping dump body that carried spare parts, oil, tires and 200 gallons of drinking water, 300 gallons of extra fuel. Paul

    ot a bit more done. Cab and sleeper are mounted and the hood is assembled with a homemade set of hinges. Works fairly well. I think I'm going to slide the hood off and put in a set of basic inner fender wells just to close the big hole up. Should be easy as they appear to be just a flat piece.

    Yes saw the photos. If I wasn't in my mid 60's I'd think of selling my Marmon for a new DC64.

    That's going to be a sweet look T. It looks longer than mine, been so long I had to take a good look to see if I shortened the wheel base. Apparently not. I didn't know the kits had different chassis in different reissues. I'm going to start a thread so it can be seen also. The real trucks are being made as glider kit by a company called T Line supposedly by next year. Now if only the Marmon Company would return so I could retire my OTR and get a new one that would allow me into Cali. Paul.

    Looks nice, glad to see you are back on it. I'm working on one right now that root beer color also. Been on and off it for quite a few years.

    Thanks. It was a bit of work to fit it to the Ford cab, wasn't really sure if it would be worth it.

    Got a lot done the past 3 days. Interior done less clutter, chassis painted dark blue, sleeper fitted to cab and the body in color. Paul
