A couple of new hoods have appeared on my bench over the last couple of days. When done they should make building some of Aarons USFS trucks on the main page fairly easy!!!
So, here they are, a tilt, and a bat-wing hood for an IH Loadstar. Before the question is asked, yes they will be casted, and yes there will be standard, and crewcab versions!!!

Do those work on the newly released International semi or would it be better to get the Ford LN?

Been a while for an update, but here goes!
First, the ALF Eagle raised roof is just about done! Here is the first test pour.
Image

With the cab will be included a set of interior panels to add some detail to the sides of the cab.
Image

These panels will be available seperatly, for those that are building a standard Trumpeter cab. The oly modification that will be required will be to shorten the rear "post" area.

Second is the Loadstar project.
Thinking of the fire department applications first, I've been working on a travel-crew cab as the first cab.
Image


Next may not be quite a "fire" truck, but, it could be a cool tanker, or a dozer transport, or something. Its an International 9400I Series semi. I'm starting with the 9400 hood, but I have plans for the updated Paystar 5000I hood also.
Image
Image

Thats it for tonight, and hopefully it won't be too long before the next update!!

BTW, Dave, how's the Spartan coming? That rig Zoli posted is ringing a bell with one of my planned projects, and the Spartan you're working on would look loads better than the KW W-900 I had planned. ;)

I think I'm down to an A/C unit for the roof, and deciding on what I'm going to be doing for interior panels...

Finally got the interior panels figured out so they turn out!!! It was a frustrating experience! The mold even hit the wall once, but it bounced back! :shock: I hope to have the info to Chris soon, and then when hes feeling better they'll be on the site!

With a big Thank You to Daveski25 for reviewing my latest cab, I'd like to announce it is available!!!

As seen in the "reviews" section, it is a raised top ALF Eagle cab that fits the Trumpeter kit. With each cab, there are also a pair of interior panels to replicate some of the interior detail that is missing from the kit.

Price $35.00 plus postage

I will also have just the interior panels seperatley. With just a minor trim on the rear upper corner they will fit the Trumpeter kit cab.

Price $10.00/pr. plus postage
I will get the info to Chris ASAP to have it available from my site, but if you need one before the site gets updated, drop me a pm, or an email.
