It looks like you need a set of 1/35 set of keys and it would start and drive down the road You had one picrure of the truck hooked to the trailer with a red hose hooked up, at this point if you hooked the air, electrical would there be hoses for hydraulics . I have the kit but I am not ready to start it yet. Great job

Well Jim, I already tried to start it, but there was so much smoke from cold engine, that I rather left it for outside of my workshop...

There was some delay, so IŽll have to update my progress a little. It is almost a year from when I started this build...uuuf...

Today, the base basics was finished - it will consist mainly from a simple road - maybe one or two figures...There are some pics to show I am not finished yet...

MR tight ups and turnbuckles...great add on!


Base from a modeling clay:


Few pics after wheels was added:

Wow, that is cool. That looks like a large base for clay. What kind of clay did you use? Is it like milliputty? Anyway, the model looks totally awesome.

That an awesome build. One thing having read through this and a couple of others where do you get the bottles of water coke cartons smoke cartons etc, they really make the cab look great, may have missed it in threads.

hey Pavel,
thanks for that everything ordered. Main kit arrived and commenced with the build on the trailer however i am have major dramas trying the connect the ducting no matter how long i hold it on with the super glue it soon as i let it go it just falls of, can you offer any advice on the best way to do this as it would be a shame to build it without it.

AllanP
PS im using ZAP CA superglue fast curing

Hi Alan

Well, I am drilling out a small hole before I glue the wire/hose everytime...without it, it will not hold too long...

Wow that is awesome and I like the tracktor better. I want to do one with my old M1 ABV but when you put a large load on this type of trailer. What's the military's way on chaining down this type of heavy load. (Like yours)???

Wow this is amazing I can't wait till your all done. I have one of the HET's and I just started back modeling again and I wanted to do this massive kit but I thought I should start slow and something small. Your work is just so inspiring and helps me wanting to keep going.

Happy Modeling

This is quite a nice build you have going. The HET is a beast and you are moving at quite a clip. I can't wait to see how the Loader turns out. I like you choice of red! Great work.

Your rendering of the piece seems much more ccurate. I think the NATO tri-colr paint job is great. I din not mean to step on your idea... I think I saw someone doing something similar to my load back in 2010!. Remember, there are no truly new idea - we all learn from each other. You need to make yours better than mine - which it looks like you are on your way to doing so.

It was just a joke man! Really - donŽt expected that with almost the only civil loader on the market I will be original too much... But thanks, I am glad you like it - I love yours, no doubt!

Btw - yours is a resin piece from Accurate, am I right??

Thanks Pavel

Yes,It is the Accurate Armour M1070. Nice model... took about 4 years to build. The Tractor was a gem. I was forced to exercise/improve my soldering skills. Trailer was nice too, but had some casting flaws/air bubbles that were fairly significant in the load bed. Funny, I found those same MR tie downs - they are very nice. I purchase two extra packs as I was afraid they would go out of the market before I could finish my UK M1070F. I have completed a Warrior MRV for the load. Maybe I'll done in 1-2 years - who knows! Keep going. Displaying your piece will be a challenge. I got a plexi display case and it is definitely the star of my collection - also keeps the dust out.
Good luck.
Mike
