    My Fathers Day gift

    We shall see. Also thinking about doing a two tone cab with the darker shade starting at the top of the front fenders and covering the bottom of the cab.

    Thanks. Actually may be looking for one of those more aggressive drop visors. I think they sell them on this website as Revell Snap KW visors.

    My Fathers Day gift

    KW W900 Aerodyne (as seen below) just ordered. I start her upon arrival (weather permitting). I'm hoping she comes out as good OR better than my 359 and that's the best model I ever built. There are a lot of inspirations floating around the Web so the possibilities are endless. Only thing I need to get is the visor for the KW. I assume it with have to be resin cast. If anyone has suggestions on where to get visors I'm all ears

    Thank you for the reply. May actually go with the Revell KW W900 Aerodyne "Snap Tite" kit instead. It will go along with my Peterbilt 359 "Snap Tite" I built last October/November. They ain't complex but are fun builds nonetheless. Pic of the 359 is below.

    AMT White Western Star on the bench

    Thank you.
  6. Hello all and hope everyone is well. My wife is getting me a new kit for fathers Day and it will be from one of the following all AMT. GMC Astro 95 Autocar A64B Mack Cruiseliner I built all of these 40 something years ago and at almost 58 my mind is a little fuzzy on assembly. So my questions are as follows: What issues are prevalent? Example hinges don't fit right. Cab sits too high. The exhaust tubing needs attention. The mirrors don't fit correctly without work. Engine has fit issues. Any help would be most appreciated. Thank you.

    IH 4300 Transtar color choices

    Thanks Paul. The red is from a cheap can of Walmart enamel spray. As is the flat black.
  8. I have been slowly working on an AMT White Western Star cab for a little bit. Going for that mid-late 1970's O/O leased to a carrier effect. The cab, hood, and mercury "Hot Box" sleeper are painted in Rustoleum Gloss Meadow Green as seen in the picture. The frame will be painted in a bright yellow. Going with 10 hole wheels on the front, and spoke "wagon wheels" on the rears. As I have been going through the parts and separating them I have discovered I am missing the hood hinges, the brake cylinders for the rear wheels, and the two bottom rails that glue into the sleeper to raise it up off of the frame. Not sure where to find replacements. So if anyone has any ideas I'd sure appreciate it. Thank you.

    Paul. Hi hope all is well. Here is the cab, hood, and engine from the 4300. So far so good.

    IH 4300 Transtar color choices

    Paul, Good morning and hope you are well. I have decided to paint the frame and associated parts semi gloss black. Aluminum tanks and stacks. Going to do it as a fleet unit with an owner operator feel to it. Need to acquire the necessary decals. I kind of like the ones from either the AMT Cali Hauler, or the new Autocar reissue. Going to source them probably on Ebay. Thanks again for all your help thus far.

    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.
  12. 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.

    Paul. Thanks. It's a long and winding road (with all due respect to the Fab 4) but hopefully will be worth it.

    New to the forums

    Hello all. Hope everyone is well. I am new to the forums. I hope to gain a lot of knowledge from all the other builders on the forums. Currently in the midst of building a number of projects. They are as follows: AMT Pete 352, KW 123, White Freightliner SD, Mack R685ST, White Western Star, Diamond Reo Conventional, Ford LN8000SD. All have been painted just working on them bit by bit. Will post pics of my work at the earliest possible chance I have. Thanks. Jersee Jerry55
