From Wikipedia, the free Encyclopedia

Western Star Trucks Sales, Inc. is an American truck manufacturer headquartered in Portland, Oregon, and a subsidiary of Daimler Truck North America, which is an independent subsidiary of the multinational Daimler Truck.

The 4700 Series was Western Star's entry-level model and was available in truck and tractor applications, both with a 110-inch (2,790 mm) BBC. In vocational applications, its engineering helped reduce upfitting time and costs for body builders, and could be outfitted for virtually any vocational application. For on-highway use, the 4700 was available in a daycab and with 40" sleeper configuration and was primarily used in short haul applications.

Model Details
1:50 Scale
Material: Die-cast Metal with some plastic parts

A Collection of over 60+ Model Cars ranging in the Following Scale. 1:12, 1:14, 1:18, 1:24. The higher the Scale, the more detailed the features on the Model can be seen.
The Museum publishes all the models it purchases, and they are added to the Museum's Website. The guy who does all the work is 76 years old, got his webpage Diploma in June 2017, and runs & pays for all the work on the website.
This is a 1:50 Scale model, which we intend to be part of a diorama. Even at this small scale, the detail is astounding. Even down to the engine, an immense amount of attention has been done.
So a good addition to our heavy trucks, but we will be getting new additions in the future. So despite the scale, I have given it 5.0/5.0 Robin Finlay 08/01/2023
