« on: January 02, 2017, 11:13:52 AM »
I was recently given this Home Hardware Freightliner with a set of doubles Not the best detail on it but I thought the set doubles are cool,first time I have seen a set like this.It is made by Ertl.I have a couple other Home Hardware trucks and am curious as to how many other Home Hardware 1/64 diecast models have been made.

The 9900i and 9900 looks quite nice, interesting to see them, seem to remember a Transtar COE too maybe but not sure. I am working on one in 1/87 scale, a Prostar with B-Trains, should really get back to that one!

I got my brother a White GMC from Spartan Express with doubles from ERTL a few years ago for Christmas. Roadway had a set made as well. You're right they don't have as much detail as other manufacturers out there, but they are a SOLID model.

Home Hardware has a TON of models out there in the market.  I bet with all the variations they've done in 1/64, they gotta be pushing 20-25 different ones.  Ertl had 4 that I know about.

Ertl
The Transtar COE with van trailer
They did a IH 9300 with van trailer
Freightliner C120 w/ doubles
IH-S series straight truck flatbed, with mixed lumber load

The SpecCast Liberty Classics versions

They have a few with the K100 COE cab
They have a bunch with the T2000 cab, van trailers, flatbeds
They have a bunch with the Pete 379 cab, van and flatbed versions

I believe they also had French and English versions as well.  They are out there.  Every time I search eBay, I seem to find a new one I've never seen before.

Oh nice! I haven't come across that one in our local store over the years, it would seem like one of the later ones out there.
