    IH Paystar 5000 4x4

    That’ll work just fine. A truck waiting for a new purpose, and looking cool at the same time, just like the inspiration photo.

    IH Paystar 5000 4x4

    Thanks! It was a former spreader truck. I started to make another spreader bed for this one, but I thought it looked cool without the bed, so I think I am going to leave the bed off.

    IH Paystar 5000 4x4

    That’ll be one mean machine. With no fifth wheel on the 1:1, I assume it had a body at one time, for off-road use. I’ve seen similar 4x4 trucks with those tires for ag use around here - fertilizer, etc.

    IH Paystar 5000 4x4

    This one was inspired by an actual truck for sale on the internet. Mine will be Detroit powered though.😀 Here is the inspiration truck: Here is what I have so far:

    Hey Brian. I love the pix above. The hood came out great. Thanks for sharing!

    Thanks Vince! I kind of surprised myself too building a clean truck. The story is that it has a fresh paint job and new side boards to make it ready to sale.

    That’s a clean, well-maintained truck. It should fetch a good price, and make good money for its next owner. An excellent build. I have to admit, at first glance, I pondered “such a clean truck for him?” But, further inspection revealed truly subtle and realistic weathering perfection.

    Glue?

    Hi: I'm a newbie in here and what I used for most of my plastics is not really a glue at all, but a bonding agent. It's called Bondene. It is a clear liquid and is like water. Use a small brush to apply. You put your pieces together, leave a small gap, touch the brush with bondene to the gap. It will flow through capillary action down the joint. Squish the pieces together and it's done. For long seams, repeated applications are need for each section but will be stronger than the plastic around it. The plastic will break before the bond will. I swear by it for plastics. For clear parts I use a clear parts cement. For resins, super glue or epoxy. Stephen intruder500

    LNG Trailers

    Yes, most are scratchbuilt. However, I think Keystone may have something close. https://www.kamodelminis.com/ They have a lot of really awesome trailers and loads. You still have to do some scratch building, or at least borrow parts from other kits, but you can create some unique builds.

    How did you build the hydraulic gearbox drive unit for the drum . Do you make them for sale ? Thanks
  23. 🤤 Does any know of 3d printer files on 1/25 scale hydraulic gearbox for concrete mixer models. I not a scratch builder , but would someone have resin units or can build one for me. I want to replace the chain drive with a Hydraulic driven gearbox for the drum. Thanks. I see a few scratch built concrete trucks that have this gearbox feature. Thanks

    LNG Trailers

    Hi All: Where do you guys find the tanks for pressurized cargo like LNG? Is this a scratch built thing or what? Thanks in advance... intruder500
