Here are some photos of my S/Line tow truck which was finished for the recent Central Victorian Model Show held at Nagambie recently.
The model is a spare parts build. The chassis has bits from 4 different kits, an air bag suspension from a Transtar 4070 kit, a repro resin cabin, modified tow body (shortened) with scratch built lifting gear. The fuel tanks are from the spares box, the exhaust system has been scratch built and the muffler has been made using a small filter from a plumber's tool box with some aluminium tube.
Hope you all like it!!





A photo of the S/Line and it's stablemate, a Transtar 4300.

Thanks Paul, have been practising for a while now and starting to get the hang of it!!

Thank you too Scummy. Yes mate I do like the old Inters. They make up the majority of my "fleet." I think there are about 18 finished models and probably another half dozen on the bench, including a 190.
