I have an International KB-6 that I have been restoring for some time. It was an easy project to copy as it sits right here in my shop. 12:1 scale. This was back before I stained my tires black. There is an engine, trans, drive shaft. pedels on the floor, shifter,heater and dash. Wood is red cedar accents are maple.

With the detail you put in your wood models, I’d like to see the detail you are putting in the restoration of the actual.

I suppose you have one of those cats in the bed also sitting in your shop waiting restoration?

Really enjoy your posts… keep ‘em coming… by the way… this truck looks a little dusty… it deserves a little clean up!! HA…

Thanks for sharing Hunter71,

By showing the frame, you inspired me to build a full size Go-Cart toy from dimentional lumber for my grandson. Yep !

Good work buddy. I believe you’re on the artistic side.

Best,

Serge
