Promoting Excellence in HO Scale Vehicle Modeling

International RC-180 Livestock Truck - By John Raymond

Here's a photo of a Sheepscot International RC-180 cab on a Herpa/Promotex chassis. The model is a replica of a livestock and general goods truck driven by John Raymond's father-in-law in the late 1950s in New Zealand. The full-size truck was an International ASC162 powered by a 354 Perkins diesel made in Australia and rated by its owner Bert Watchorn of Watchorn's Transport as the most diabolical truck he ever owned.
