Promoting Excellence in HO Scale Vehicle Modeling

International Emeryville Truck Tractor - By Jim Groeneweg

This classic International Emeryville built by Jim Groeneweg features a modified Athearn chassis, scratchbuilt interior, and a scratchbuilt Detroit Diesel 6-71 engine. Mirrors, steps, and windshield wipers were made from staples and plastic. The Puget Sound Casting resin cab was extensively re-worked by adding dummy windows to the rear of the sleeper, refining the door lines, and modifying the grille trim. Check Photo Gallery 42 for another look at this tractor with a trailer.
