little trucks are still trucks and fun to build, had this Boley Crew cab on the go for years already, just decided-for what ever reason- to finish it off. The cab was stripped and re-painted, grille added with BareMetalFoil on surround, lopro tires on 5 hole steelies from Dennis Aust, a stake deck added from another Boley truck mud flaps and a taillight panel on the back. Apex Construction now has a 2014 LoPro Durastar Crew Cab

painted in 1970 Ford Grabber Blue
the 7600 is shown beside the 4400 (Durastar)

Jim,
Nice collection.  I wanted to know where did you get the paver behind the blue dump truck.

Doug: Grabber Blue is a match for M-O? I should check, I have M-O mixed in a different bottle, I''l check to see if the formula is the same. And yes, an M-O is in the future, has been for many years!!

Dave: the paver is a Kibri item, not sure it is available any more but you may catch one o eBay if it isn't. Oddly enough, got it from a guy down your way, Bob Leinbach from Boxcar Hobbies in Yakima. It was on a trip down to see Dennis Aust-to pick up our first casting of his. Regret to have to add Bob has passed away since! If you need a kit # to search, give me a shout and I'll look up the box it was in.

Here is an IH 9900i that uses a Jacobs resin cast cab/sleeper with a modified Rick's decals hood grafted onto it, rides on Dennis Aust wheels tires, air breathers and has A-Line fuel tanks with scratch built battery boxes, exhaust stacks and mirrors finished in Nissan's Daytona blue automotive base clear paint.

The trailer is a Promotex aluminum 48' tridem step deck that has Dennis Aust 5-hole wheels with Roco tires added all around, added bulk head and angle tubes braces on the frame. The load is a Kibri bucket from a front end loader along with a Norscott CAT 163H grader "chained down" with wire strands. A-line safety stripes added on rub rail.

Mr.Groeneweg,sir  :) I thought you might like to know that you are having an influence on those of us that model in a different scale than HO.Though I do model in HO my primary scale is N and it seems that Showcase Minatures has just released a older version IH quad cab.

The reason I brought this up is I am going to do one of my N scale quads like your blue Durastar with a short flatbed,if I can find a dump box the other truck will be a dump truck.

Catt: I never did respond to this but wondered now if you ever got your crew cab done up on N scale??

Found this IH 4900 model while unpacking after a move, somehow this one never did get attention, it is a build of the early 90's, cab is a Life-Like U-Haul model that is mounted on a scratch-built chassis, lengthened Lindberg dump box with Walther's spoke wheels, yes, the pewter cast ones. Painted in Grabber blue
