Small stickers on the Model T's doors,
were impossible to remove without scratching the paint.

I've found that liberal applications of Testor's Cement,
will loosen the adhesive and they can be pulled off slowly.

Glue residue can be removed after the sticker body is off.

I'm not sure how this would work on large stickers.
It would take a lot of cement.

Use good ventilation,
and no smoking while doing this.

What I really like about Ertl's 1920 International are the wheels.

They should easily interchange with the Model T fenders,
as this appears to use the same fender casting as the Model T.

Actually, after a closer look
the fender castings are not that similar.

An early Ertl Model T (the red one)
has a different size for the underframe inserts.

I don't think they would interchange.
The International's black frame is on the right.

This might be because
one was made by the original Ertl Company.

The International is a "Scale Models" product
from the second Ertl Company.

The good news is that the stickers pulled off
rather easily if you can catch a corner.

The bad news is that the paint on this truck
came off too easily with the Testor's Cement.

I was cleaning off some of the stickers' residue
when body paint started to come off.

Advice is to test an area if you aren't repainting.

Regards, Dave L.

I was able to source some red wheels
and white tires for my Model T body.

Now that the stickers are gone,
I can revisit my Model T Fire Engine project again.

The ad. for a model and photos from the net,
give me the info. to scratchbuild a model.

Liberty Classics make a nice 1930s Ford Model A tanker version.

Clark gas was around in the thirties,
so this livery would be correct to use, as is, on a layout of that era.

Here is a nice example of an Ertl 1923 Chevy van.

The gas pumps are models of Tokheim #850s,
in production 1930 to 1939.

These fit my 1935 layout era nicely.

I am unable to work on projects right now.

So looking back through files, and came across these photos,
of Liberty Classics early Studebaker models.

I admit to their being favorite models.

Thanks for looking.

Regards, Dave L.

What a collection of vehicles David.


Would I be right in assuming,

you have more than a couple of vehicles in your collection ?

Peter

I do have quite a few,
but I have never counted.

:shocked:

It started innocently enough,
with the one little Studebaker in the photo above.

After repainting it, I started to look for others,
and now I have another hobby.

I enjoy most of all sharing my finds and projects on the Forum,
and I hope some folks have discovered this source for vehicles.

Regards, Dave L.
