This LT9000 long nose Aeromax is a bit of a rare bird. They were made in diecast by Ertl as part of their 1/87 scale Racing Champions series and come with a closed auto transport trailer (also diecast, it weighed a ton). I cut it down to a day cab and scratch built the grain box. Also used a Malibu wheel that I drilled out the vents in the rims.

Very nice job, Chester. Any chance you took a 'before' picture?

Bruce, sorry to take so long to reply but I was on a fishing trip.
This has been painted and detailed but essentially the tractor here is what I started with.

DJ, Many of the accessories (horns, wheels, air cleaners etc.) for modern trucks I get from Truck Stop Models or Ralph Ratcliffe Models. The Jordan parts can be ordered directly from them but must be done via snail mail as they have no email or web site. The address is below. I pay $1 per sprue for wheels and usually order several at a time (at that price why not?)

DJ, If you write them, they will send a sheet with all of their prices and payment requirements. IIRC, I used a personal check.

Chester, thanks for that 'before' picture. It really gives us an idea of the amount of work that you put into the transformation.
