I can't speak to the build quality, but from a perspective of a truck enthusiast, I like the Lonestar.

I drove one briefly - It was a Prostar with a long nose.

There's no difference in build quality as it has the same cab and components. I don't think that the Prostar has particularly bad build quality in comparison to any other current truck (including classics).

I hope it looks more like the old Prostars.
-Said no one ever!

I prefer the Prostar. It has better handling and I prefer the looks.

Thanks Jim I'll check that out. I've tried a bunch of times to make molds with the mold putty and haven't gotten one to work. I've watched a bunch of tutorials and can't figure out why I can't get it to capture detail. Ugh. I'll either call alumilite on Monday or just break down and buy some rtv silicone.
In the meantime I've started hacking up some IHC 4900's to build a master 8100 cab. With as slow as this project is going I might finish the 8100 first.

I'm not surprised at all that the 9900i is being discontinued.  It's a pretty old design that has been around for almost 20 years, so it was definitely ready for some sort of change.  It seems to be a pretty irrelevent model in terms of sales lately, so I was pretty much expecting this.  I honestly have never cared for it as much as most other square hoods for some reason; it's hard for me to explain exactly why though.

The fact that International is at least keeping something besides the LT around as a flagship is good news to me.  Since there isn't anything else quite like it, I am very curious to see how it gets updated.  I'm not in favor of LED lights though; I have decided that on trucks they're too bold and hard on the eyes, and think it would be inappropriate to have on a flagship truck that is supposed to somewhat evoke the past rather than the future.
