I am already started to build this amazing beast from HobbyBoss, pics will be after weekend, but I am already thinking about a paint - would love to have EURO pattern with sand engine hood, or the opposite like this one for example: can you help me with a pics? Ive found only the this one pic and a video - a lot of HETs with different colors of the cabin and hoods are at 3:08... put italicized text here

Merry Christmass to you all!

Hi Pavel

As far as I can tell, the M1070 pictured in your post is fitted with the CPK (Crew Protection Kit) armored cab. I guess it's why you often see trucks in NATO 3 tone camo scheme with sand-painted cabs.

Here's another one :



You'll have to scratchbuild the CPK cab to match the M1070 in your picture...

Merry Christmas

Either scratch it, or wait for a few months until some Am company releases a conversion.

I should have added "...if you're really in a hurry" ! I had absent-mindedly forgotten about the conversion set that's in the pipeline "somewhere"...

Hi Gang,got mine on friday - damned near got a hernia carrying it to my car !,Definately worth the 110 GBP i paid for it !,just going through the instructions which show everything right down to the hydraulic lines definately means that this is no weekend build.
Plan to build mine OOTB but in the overall green scheme (bit a "Googling" in the offfing there) as i think that it looks well sexy like that !.but i will follow other people`s builds avidly as you can never have too much info about problems that might occur during a build.

Talking about overall green M1070s like these :





I guess this scheme would be OK for the very early production batches in the 90s...
