International Transtar 4300
International 4300 conventional built as a well-used tractor complete with primered panels, broken glass and grime all over. 12/06
International Paystar 5000 tractor
With all the Paystar kits that I use for kitbashing, I have discovered that I need to build at least one Paystar from time to time.
Nearly box-stock except for the dual exhaust, lift axle, winch tower and spoke front wheels from Auslowe. I stripped most of the chrome. Krylon School Bus Yellow is the color with Duplicolor gloss black for the hood and chassis.
International Transtar 4200
I bought this International 4270 back in 2000. It was an "Ebay gluebomb." Not painted, but assembled and glue smeared. I tore it down and painted it in mid 2001. It has sat in a box on the workbench being moved around ever since. FINALLY I decided I should rebuild the poor thing.
Three years to build! The paint was good and cured.
International Powerdermilk Biscuits. Evan Hermel started this truck, it was featured in Scale Auto Enthusiast in '02, and Evan sent it to me to finish.
International Transtar II
Transtar II co4070B. Built box stock, except for modification to the front axle to allow the tires to fit under the cab properly.
International CO4000 - TIME/DC
1966 International co4000. This started as a Transtar II 4070B kit, I backdated the cab for the older look, with rounded headlights, plain grille and body mouldings. I shortened the BBC, wheelbase, and made TimeDC logos on the computer. The truck has been weathered.
International Transtar II singledrive
International Transtar II co4070B. Resin daycab from Spaulding Trading and Shipping. Crouch Brothers decals from STS too. Built in 2000?
International Transtar 7up
International Transtar co4070. I cut down the cab for a daycab, shortened the kit wheelbase. The truck was inspired by a truck a neighbor drove back in '73. The 7up logos are from Microscale's HO train catalog.
International Conco. CONventionalCabOver, designed for fleet use in the 1970's. I scratchbuilt the hood, grille, fenders and interior. A junked Transtar chassis was the donor, and a left over Paystar cab and accessories was used. Gateway Transportation decals are from Spaulding Trading and Shipping. The Conco is also available in resin from Spauldings.
International Paystar 5000
International Paystar. Built fairly box-stock, I added spoke wheels, and an RNK diamond plate tool cabinet.
Here's a shot of a real Paystar that inspired mine
International CO4090 - Indianhead
International CO4090 Transtar. The 4090 sits taller than a co4070, and can take larger engines. This started as an ebay junker. I cut down the cab, raised the cab, cut down the wheelbase, fuel tanks, and scratchbuilt the bumper and air cleaner. Indianhead was a tanker company service the midwest.
