    I must confess I bought way too many of these when they came out

    Nice! Is that the stock wheelbase?

    International 4200 built in 1989

    Very nice! Even as-is. Even though it doesn't look like it would take an awful lot to bring it back up to 100%

    Lovely! The local gravel pit once had a similar unit to this.

    This was a quick and relatively pleasant buildup of the old Ertl Precision Series kit. You know, the one with that diecast frame that seems to scare off many a modeler. I didn't have too much trouble with that, but the diecast front spindles sucked, so I made new ones from plastic strip. Other than the roof top A/C unit and the decals it's totally box stock and finished in Tamiya flat yellow. I also cut away the exhaust stack and replaced it with aluminum tubing.

    I have not, but I have a few military kits I want to get around to sometime. This one is a done deal, Showroom pics coming soon.

    The engine is in. Not much will be visible once the cab is on but I have it some weathering. I tried Vallejo pigments for the first time and I'm reasonably happy.

    This is a kit I've wanted for a while. I recently was able to nab one at a not-too-terrible price. The diecast frame gave me pause, but it turns out to be a minor matter. The diecast front spindles were useless and replaced with new ones fabricated from styrene. The tractor will be weathered to resemble a semi-retired rig, no pun intended. Much of the hit chrome has been stripped. The metal frame has eight pins, meant to protrude through corresponding holes in the bumper to simulate bolt heads. Things didn't quite line up, so the pins were filed off and replaced by heads cut from straight pins. More building and detailing to come....

    Love it! Just the right amount of dirt and schmutz.

    I've wanted to build this for years, so I'll definitely be keeping a close eye on this project.

    I love it. Some very simple changes on an uncommon rig add up to an unmistakable design.
