Promoting Excellence in HO Scale Vehicle Modeling

1924 International Tractor-Trailer - By Randy Sawyer

From the workbench of Randy Sawyer - We are showing a 1924 International Truck Tractor and Trailer modeled in 1/87 scale completely scratchbuilt except for the wheels and a few detail parts. Styrene and brass were used in the construction, with strip wood for the decking. The model was painted with Humbrol enamels and heavily weathered with dry pigments and charcoal. The trailer is being loaded down with a fork truck by Snapperroo. The fork truck driver is an out of date metal figure by S.S. Ltd. This model is based on a photo found in the book, "American Work Trucks - A Pictorial History of Commercial Trucks 1900-1994".
