Moebius International Lonestar Truck Model Kit

A Moebius International Lonestar truck model.

Few new truck models are released, especially ones that might be all new 100% tolling.

Moebius Models threw away the book on truck kits and re-invented the whole truck model genre'with their all new International Lonestar.

Love it or hate it, the grille has an odd locomotive look to it, and that has captured the eye of many truck modelers. And real truckers as well.

This kit is fully loaded,and then some. Full chassis, engine, interior, it has everything you want and everyting you need to build an exceptional truck model.

I started mine by making a jig to hold the frame. I don't often build truck models, but having been brought up on models from the 1970s - mainly MPC and AMT kits, I know that the frames can be squashed and bent in the boxes. Or even if they are straight, they can be a bear to keep straight with all the cross channels and cross members glued in place.

The jig prevents all those issues and holds the frame square.

The modern diesel engine is highly detailed.

As with all truck kits, the differentials, and some other parts, are half assemblies. Simple clamps will hold them in place while the glue dries.

Masking tape is useful for mocking, and then gluing the multi piece interior compartment together. Deacls are provided to spruce up the interior, including wood grain decals.

There is mor than enough chrome to keep any truck modeler happy.

I used Plastruct sheet diamond plate to add some extra footing on the top of the chassis.
