Can you suggest some modern aftermarket equipment for me? I am not familiarized with much sets...

So before I can FILL the cabin, I finnished the wheels and started to work on jacks:


I almost forgot to show one of last equipments in cabin - oxygen filters...:


And here is the beast!


Thanks for looking!



Hi Pavel,

I enjoy watching your kit come together. That interior is looking good!!

May I ask where did you get that steel cable from??

Itīs a fishing cable (20kg - around 0.5mm) - they are made from relatively flexible steel and with various diameters and lenghts - check your fishing equipment store!

I used about 2meters for one reel - the cable packing goes about 10m, so youīll have a lot for another projects... :-)

Pavel- excellent work on the crew space! The added seatbelts, harness and dash wiring really add to the busy interior. Does the underseat detail on the drivers seat come in the kit?

Keep up the grand work

Camouflage started:






Some minor fix ups is still needed...

Btw, can somebody help me with a question - I am curious, whats happen with camouflage pattern lines underneath the car - is the camo "wrapped aroun", or does the lines end somewhere?

Looking good so far. You might want to remove the case of beer and the Playboy though. Alcohol and pornography are in violation og General Order #1 in Iraq. They wouldn't be there.

Playboy...pornography? :-o

Seriously, it means, that the soldiers cannot drink the beer during nightstops or any other time "after work"? I donīt know that, but...somehow it make sense...


Anyway, thanks for comments, I will replace it...

Playboy is an American men's magazine that features photographs of nude women as well as journalism and fiction. It was founded in Chicago in 1953 by Hugh Hefner and his associates, and funded in part by a $1,000 loan from Hefner's mother. The magazine has grown into Playboy Enterprises, Inc., with a presence in nearly every medium. Playboy is one of the world's best known brands. In addition to the flagship magazine in the United States, special nation-specific versions of Playboy are published worldwide.

We're all quite aware of what Playboy is thanks. Gino however gave you some excellent advice, while the porn might be there, the beer definitely would not. Do a little research on General Order #1, those of us who have been in the AOR tend to call it the no fun rule, no booze, no sex, no fun. It is something that can get you in an awful lot of trouble, and 88 Mike's are the last Soldiers who should have booze in the cab of their vehicle.

While I agree that Playboy is hardly porn these days, it is still against the rules. Fighting in Muslim countries in a very PC environment means we have rules we abide by. For example, while transiting Kuwait, weight lifting magazines with shirtless men are considered pornography and cannot be possessed.

Alcohol is also a big deal, when I was leaving Afghanistan, the base MP's busted a civilian contractor (rules apply to them too) who had cases of booze being shipped to him. They took it all and literally dumped/broke every bottle/can in front of the provost marshals office on Bagram. Made the whole area on Disney reek of booze for quite awhile.

Some NATO nations allow their troops to have booze/sex etc.. The Poles we lived with always had some, and some of the 18 series types were known to be able find things, others made their own MASH style, theoretically...

Thank you for important information. I have often seen pictures of Playboy in USAREUR vehicles, so I thought it was normal. It is true that Muslim states have a different view on these issues.

I think you're missing the point though, the porn might be there, the booze on the other hand would absolutely not. Keep the Playboy if you like, but lose the beer and replace with more water bottles. If you like, color some of them red or yellow. Drink mixes like Crystal Light and Kool Aid was very common.

This is a model colleague. In my no booze, just water, food, Playboys and Fine Scale Modelers.

While Playboy may seem tame to many cultures, it is Pornography in many Middle East cultures and forbidden. About the most racy magazines you would find in Iraq was Maxim and FHM. Not Playboys though (at least not out in the open ).
