1940 White WH-4 H&NT Trucks Version 1.0
MSTS Scenery Object
September 7th, 2009
Original model by Frank Musick and Tim Muir
Original textures by Niko Moritz, used by permission and modified by Frank Musick and Tim Muir

There are three models in this package. One is a White WH-4 tractor painted for H&NT Motor Freight Lines. The second is a matching trailer. The third is a complete rig to be used with the carspawner. All versions have unique names so they can all be used in the same route together.

These trucks are not perfect replicas of their full size counterparts. The vehicles in this series were never intended to be. The textures were meant to make up for any deficiency in detail, allowing a lower poly count. To that end I sought the help of two extraordinary artists, Niko Moritz and Tim Muir. Niko, a first class illustrator and modeler, was kind enough to grant his permission for the use of his artistry to texture this series of models. Tim is responsible for most of the modifications. He was able to morph Niko's work into many of the combinations that texture the trucks in this series. He also suggested or furnished important details for the models such as mirrors, chrome trim, spotlights, foglights and the distinctive "Stop" lights.

Wow, love that rusty detail of the engine visible in the wheel-well!

It's nice to see a White truck represented! White was as big as Mack and Kenworth, and like Chevrolet was nationally popular. Two biggest mistakes that lead to the companies downfall was the Model 5000 with weak fiberglass body construction during the 1960's. Also the switching from the proven diesel engine to gasoline engines, the new engines were named “Mustang” and “White Giesel”. Both mistakes led to loss of sales. It's fatal mistake is the number of acquisitions it purchased Freightliner and Sterling in 1951, Autocar in 1953, Reo Motors in 1957 and Diamond T trucks in 1958. WMC retained many of the different nameplates, but merged Reo Motors and Diamond T under the new moniker Diamond Reo. The company had over extended itself with acquisitions and fell into heavy debt.
