This is not a direct reissue of the 1973 Ertl kit #8000 as those molds/tools are long gone. It's not a re-pop or a re-issue.

The new version of the Transtar CO4070A cabover is a 100% NEW TOOL. Round2 using an original Ertl #8000 kit had it 3D scanned to create CAD drawings so that the kit could be reworked and created again. Each part had to be removed from the sprues and scanned. The NEW TOOL will feature new parts layout, a new chrome tree with different chrome parts than the original. Some shapes that the original kit didn't capture or didn't fit as well as they should have been corrected.



Here are some of the subtle changes you will see in the Round2 NEW TOOL AMT branded International Transtar CO4070A:

  • 1 color plastic (no red plastic to cause paint issues)
  • New parts layout.
  • Cleaner molding parting seams.
  • Non-chromed 5th wheel.
  • Non-chromed spoke wheels.
  • Non-chromed air cleaner piping.
  • Non-chromed manifold and lower exhaust pipes.
  • Air horn shape corrected with open trumpet ends - no more flat end with large visible seam.
  • Right hand step reworked to clear the tire.
  • Front axle placement adjusted to clear battery box.
  • Front axle track-width narrowed so the tires sit under the cab properly.
  • Optional chrome plated 10-hole Alcoa Front Runner steer wheels
  • 1 piece vinyl tires
  • Separately molded windshield A-pillar wind deflectors.

Round2's art department produced a new instruction booklet, new decals and new box art (in the flavor and style of the original kit).


You won't be disappointed with this NEW TOOL kit. It builds as easily if not easier that the 1973 Ertl original.  (text by by Warren D)
