Promoting Excellence in HO Scale Vehicle Modeling

International RDF405 Truck Tractor - By Stephen Del Sesto

Steve Del Sesto built this International RDF-405 truck tractor, starting with a Sheepscot IHC R-230D. Steve removed the pit fenders and shortened the hood area and reshaped the grille area. He recreated the front fenders and headlights, added some cab steps, and then fabricated the exhaust and aluminum stack. Frame, wheels, and fuel tank are from the scrap box.
