  1. Today
  2. Yeah the instructions for the brakes are terrible. I fought with the same thing on the Pete 352 kit (same frame).
  3. Hi all: Burgandy was a popular interior color for the IH 4300 Eagle -- does anyone have a good "burgandy" paint (i.e. Testors, Model Master, Tamiya, etc.) ? Thanks
  4. Yesterday
  5. I'm starting a 4300 build as well. Do you know how you are going to address the issue with the front wheels not being centered in the front fenders ? I know this is an issue with this kit. Thanks !
  6. Hi all: I know that the AMT/Ertl IH 4300 Transtar kit -- if built out of the box -- has the issue where the front wheels are not centered in the front fender wheel openings. Has anyone done a build with this corrected ? The front springs are molded into the frame rails so it's a bit tricky -- hoping someone can post some pics of their solution to fix this. Thanks!
  7. Last week
  8. Nice work. Can’t wait to see it finished. I have driven a lot of Mack’s and they have front row seat in my heart massive engine !

    Hello! Fellow Plastic Cowboys!

    Welcome ! I have recently joined myself and remember pay $ 8.95 or so from the auto world catalog easy back when. eBay is great for finding the classic plastic-but wow the price lol. Honestly I pay it because I find value in the old Ertl kits. They were the best back in the day and still are, even forty years later. Keep on truckin !
  10. Sweet build. Nice paint and chrome. Really nice round nose MACK

    Welcome to the group
  17. I started this in 1980... really i did, but then lost everything except for the engine, cab, hood, sleeper and completed interior. All of this was painted in 1980 and except for the cab roof is original paint. Bare metal foil was done in 1980 and has survived in pristine condition ! These parts were literally sealed in Tupperware until last summer. As luck would have it AMT re-released the R model so I have used it to complete this model. Soo many adjustments in this kit. I have added so many details that it has become maddening lol-but I think worth it in the end. Completed pics will follow upon completion. This is to represent a working truck so subtle weathering will be found throughout.
  18. Here is the extendable flatbed from Great Dane. Being a late 1960 early 1970 offering i had to update and modify. I changed the headache rack from the solid one to a "headboard " style. added a tool box from AITM making the frame and refit it with super singles. I also replaced the weak i beam bumper with an ample square tube complete with Meng bolt head details.

    I have been following the site for about a year now and just joined in order to show my trucks and comment on all the good builds i see. I have building seen 1975 and just recently started back after about a near twenty year hiatus. So nice to see someone is finally putting out a truck model magazine, thank you Lee Hartman. As a kid that was only a dream but we did have many good contributors to a truck model column in Scale Auto Enthusiasts magazine. I am so glad to see a lot of folks casting all types of parts for the hobby. Back in the day we only had a few guys doing it and they are not any more, luckily some their masters live on at AITM and GW resin to name a few. Some of the stuff is lost forever like Clint Freeman's items. After my time in the Navy, first Gulf war, I drove tankers for about 13 years and transitioned into a new career around 2010. So many of the builds I see here motivate me to be a better modeler- so to that I thank you all. And yes I am subscribe to the school of thought...Build the classic plastic !!
