"Very nice!"
Tex Jester
While healing from a shattered leg, I took up these kits as a way to pass the time; I can remember building some as a kid. Found I REALLY enjoy them! So far, I have the White Freightliner cabover (first kit), the Autocar A64B, the stretch flatbed, and now this International - that's my experience. This kit is better than I am; I had some issues because I don't know better. There are some inconsistencies that I noticed, me being a long haul trucker (I'll post a photo of this truck next to my daily - a Peterbilt!).... First, most of us put our pillows right behind the driver's seat, not the passenger. Next, the spacers in the drive tires aren't wide enough and the tires touch. The kit itself is a dream to build, and I may give another a go at some point in the future when my skills improve greatly. The parts like mirror brackets and handholds are very thin, much more realistic - but much more fragile as a result. There is quite a bit of flashing to be removed and smoothed; some of the sprues are quite thick where they meet the parts. Some of the molds look like they're a millimeter off from each other. Despite some of this, the fit of almost all parts were perfect.

"International 4300"
robby359 (East Bernstadt, Ky)
This is 1 of Ertl's great old kits. These old kits were very nice for their time. They are still fun to build. This is 1 of my favorites that they did. This version is molded in white rather than the yellow that the original was. The only real flaw with this kit is the wheelbase. It needs to be longer. It is fine if you build it as a day-cab but if you use the sleeper it is really tight. Overall it is a very nice detailed kit.

Good builder - Instructions are well done and clear. Flash is light but I did have one line that was heavy across the back of the cab that required a file and some sanding. Detail was clean and crisp. Parts fit was excellent and the only issue I had was fitting the rear axle, It sits a little far back in the frame, so I had to stretch the driveshaft but tha was the only real issue I had. I painted it black with lime green fenders. I painted the interior leather tan with black accents. I would recommend this to all builders.

This is one of my favorites to date. This version is molded in white rather than the orange/yellow color from years past. I made a modification to the frame (stretched it a bit) and opted to forgo the sleeper and paired it with on of the flat bed trailers for a construction scheme. painted it to match and it looks great. The chrome parts seemed to be a little over the top and I ended up sanding and painting a few of them to match other areas. Overall it's a very nicely detailed kit. I'll be trying this one again, maybe with the sleeper this time S. A. Lund - WA.
