Body Style Information: Designed to hold nine automobiles (which are not included with the product), fully assembled, and factory painted and decorated, these Lonestar models have brass trailers and tractor cab head-rack assemblies, etched stainless steel mirrors, plastic tractor cabs, trailer brake details, and trailer light lenses.

With two-hundred of each tractor cab number produced, these were manufactured in an extremely short (total) production run of four hundred pieces.

Prototype Information:
The Ford L series (also named Ford Louisville or, for the 1988+ aerodynamic models, Ford Aeromax) is a range of heavy-duty trucks that were assembled and marketed by Ford between 1970 and 1998. The first dedicated Class 8 truck produced by the company, the L-series range replaced the N-series short conventional (derived from the F series). Produced as both straight trucks and semitractors, the Ford L series encompassed a wide range of models through the Class 7-8 GVWR ratings in medium-duty, severe-service, and vocational applications. The line would become one of the most popular series of trucks Ford ever produced.

The L series was produced in the Kentucky Truck Plant near Louisville, Kentucky, which gave rise to the nickname "Louisville Line" trucks; as part of a 1996 redesign, part of the model line officially took on the Louisville nameplate.

Following the sale of the Ford heavy-truck line to Freightliner in 1996, the L series was discontinued by Ford at the end of 1998. Freightliner would concurrently take over production of the Ford L series, opening its Sterling Trucks subsidiary; the L series became the Sterling A line, Acterra, and L line, remaining in production until 2009 when Sterling Trucks closed operations.

Road/Company Information:
Some items are designed to have their owner add whatever company marking they choose, usually in the form of decals or dry-transfers. These items are painted in a generic prototypical fashion but with all company affiliation deliberately left off.

Brand/Importer Information:
Lonestar produces a line of the highest quality 1/87 (HO) scale vehicles, trailers, and accessories available today for the experienced modeler. Our goal is to provide you, the model builder, with the absolute best quality product you can buy to replicate vehicle modeling in 1/87 scale.

Our products are scaled from original builders' drawings and our kits include some of the most intricate injection molded parts available in the hobby today. Our leading edge kits have introduced to 1/87 vehicle modelers concepts such as photo-etched stainless steel panel inserts combined with a plastic body and utilizing laser cut wood material to represent the wood decking of the actual prototype where appropriate.

Lonestar Models was launched with their Barrett 50' Eagle livestock trailer kit. This kit introduced our unique combination of plastic body molding with stainless steel side panel inserts that set the 1/87 scale vehicle modeling world on end! Since then, we've continued our pioneering products by introducing the Trailmobile 40' flatbed trailer utilizing a laser cut wood deck, our lumber delivery truck, the exceptionally detailed Wilson 43' Pacesetter grain trailer, and our ever expanding line of truck and trailer accessories.
