Pics: Back to business for the new year: International 4200 and Freightliner M2
New Ray produces a line of trucks in 1:43 that are quite good and down right cheap to buy. These can be added to your fleet fo a little as $10.99-12.99 a copy depending upon the source. The cabs are metal and the chassis and bodies designed for different purposes are made of sturdy high impact plastic. The parts are fastened together with tiny screws allowing for disassembly for customizing. On these box trucks I customized the boxes to replicate one of my favorite carriers in Massachusetts. We often see them on the ferry to the Vineyard and on the island itself. Many of the actual trucks operated by Cape Cod Express have red cabs. Shown with the models are actual box trucks for each make.
