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).

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...

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

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!

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.

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...

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?

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

It was just a joke man! Really - don´t 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??

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.

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.
