    Here are a couple of updates. The cab is now in paint and some of the details have been added. Still lots to do but now and then it is fun to deviate from the general build and concentrate on the fun stuff. The paint is Duplicolor right from the can. I like it because it dries quickly and is a hard finish. Easy to polish out. I did the IH decals on my computer copying the logo from a photo of the real one. Then it was downsized and printed on an ALPS printer. The seat came from the '50 Chevy. It was brush painted with acrylic Model Master medium tan. When put on over Duplicolor primer it flowed perfectly into a nice even coat. Bare Metal Foil was used on the grill bars. Headlight bezels are now glued in place. Next up is to lightly sand and polish the hood and doors.

    Since the last post several things have been done. Doors have been opened by scribing and sawing. Then brass butt hinges were added to the cab and doors. The interior tub has been put in place also. When the doors were cut away the cab became very flimsy since it was only held together by the A posts at the windshield. I also cut away the cast in place headlight surrounds and substituted the chrome ones from a Ford truck kit. The door interiors have been painted with inside latches and window cranks made from bright aluminum wire. The dash board has been sanded for fitting and the cast in place gages were cut off. A decal was made of all of the gages and overlaid with photoetched bezels. The seat will be painted the same as the top of the dash as an accent color. Gear shift, hand brake and 4 wheel drive lever are ready for installation.

    Just finished this one after it sat unfinished for 12 years. Nothing special, pretty much out of the box.
