This one was built in a week. Mostly stock with engine swapped to IH V-8 and wheels swapped with 4070A.

The 4070 was always my all time favorite cabover. The very first truck I built back in 1973 was the 4070A, so seeing this brings back memories. It's also kind of ironic because I just rebuilt a 4270 and used the 10 holes from the 4300. Nice work as usual.

Thanks Anthony! The Ertl IH kits were always my favorites. I built a few of them in my younger days myself. I liked them because they seemed to fit together like they were supposed to.
