thanks Jim - I am following one of this manuals - I have a plenty of them

But anyway - what you meant by "there were hydraulics also" - you mean some additional tubing?

There is a lot of manuals on the web, I have to find the right one, I thought I had this in my notes, I will have to go through 8 note books of referance materisl, Darn now I want to start mine. I am right at the end of finishing a 7 foot long radio control submarine. I may take a brake and clean my desk and break the kit out. If I find the piping detail I will send it to you.

Thanks a lot Jim! PM sent...

There was some time from my last update, so there it is - I am working hard on the trailer. Continued on the suspension - especially the pistons of high adjusting actuators (dampers). I wanted the chrome look, so I started to searching for proper aluminium tubes to replace original plastic ones:

The trailer goes together nicely, but the number of all the parts is just enormous...

Wiring started:



Than the drum brakes...



Finally the wiring finished:


All together:

Today´s progress - glue two pairs to trailer to obtain the stability and desired wheel steer angle.



Than I paint the bottom of trailer - I believe the suspension is in black matt colour...


Later today I´ll want to connect the pipes and continue with connection of the rest of arms...

Thanks for looking!

Looking good Pavel! I see you added a cable to the rear left and right sides? at the mudflaps. what reference did you use for that? I missed that and should add it as well.

good luck with the rest!

Glad you like it!

Here is next progress - clear coat, decals, wheels test fit - to ensure, that keeping the geometry on this model is PIA... But I have all suspensions working (dampers), so it is not a big deal, it will be adjusted when the base is ready

Here are the promissed pics:

Looking REALLY cool Pavel! cant wait till the moment I get a that stage of the project.
I will add the wire on the rear of the trailer, should not be a problem at this moment.

You should build another M1070 and put it on the M1000
that would be an insane combination

Absolutely agree - I am starting to build another CPK version in one or two weeks - at least few pics together are in plans, but permanent load will be Mig´s wheel loader
