Yes...I could imagine how dificult to build resin kit like this is...again, big WOW to all who managed to complete it...

About the case, I am thinking about the same, can you post or send me a pic of your display case?

Loader after few pigment storms... almost ready to be tightened on the trailer:




Due to its enormous weight, I have to think about quality of the connection with the trailer - together they have 0.519kilograms...

Dear Pavel,
Thanks for the detailed info you show us.
Your combination of 'drafted' civil equipment, loaded on pure military trucks shows a more and more common sight in modern armies, the most during peace keeping and enforcing missions. (Though the other way round is common as well: quite some military stuff is hauled into mission areas by civil companies.)
Hopefully, you will show us more.
But where did you find the load securing chains? I need some myself to buckle my Dragon MLRS to Trumpeter's Franziska SLT trailer.

Paul - you are right, this is the theme I like most on military trailers...dirty, war tired trailer + shiny new civil equipment...well, I was not succesfull with shiny new stuff - the Mig´s dozer is too simple for that, but it do the job...

Boris - tell me that...this is my biggest project so far in my life, in matter of time and space...but I like this kit so much, I still keep it coming - WOW to that!

IF you put this monster on the construction ground and take a shot, it will totally fool me

Great job

I just got in the tie downs from Germany that you are using and I must say they did a good job, and they can be used on other projects, but they were pricey though. Thanks for the idea

Well I am finished... This was my biggest project so far, longest build, most parts to put together, largest...jeeez so much superlatives in this box...

I have to take a drink...




There will be some work on it in the nearest future, like a figure etc, but the kit itself is done. I´ll take some pics of it ASAP...

Your build is very good. Thanks for all the time and effort you took to create your build blog. What a great project. Here is a pics of those JMK cases I told you about.
The Big one came with a separate base. The smaller one has an integrated base (very nice).
