the cast wheels look excellent !

It would be great if you produce the tie down chains and tightening bar - that is used to keep the loads in place - this is badly needed for the kit.

cheers

Hello Miloslav! I see that you are doing a very nice job on this M1070 so far! I also saw that you will be producing an engine for it? Will this engine be sold as a conversion kit that I may purchase for my M1070 as well as my Hobby Fan M911? Will you be producing the Allison automatic transmission as well? I have mastered an Allison MD4560 automatic transmission in 1/25 scale. and I can send you one if you would like to scale it down to 1/35? Please look at my Fotki albums and you will see the album titled "Allison MD4560 transmission" and please let me know if you are interested.
Thank you.

As seen on ML :

The engine hood seems to be not totally right.

This is the wheels you are will be releasing for market? Can you take a detail picture of one?

Happy New year tyt...

Pascal: Already noticed on N54 - for me it is not a big deal - hope it could be, at least a little, fixed by positioning of the hood a little up in hinges...

Modell is correct. The error is in the establishment of the engine hood. When the hood sits directly on fender, then fall down too.

Hi Milo,
I think the technical term for the equipment is a ratchet load binder - it allows the slack in the chains to be taken up by torqueing the bar. I cant find exact military ones - but I found this

http://www.globalsecurity.org/military/library/policy/army/fm/55-450-2/Ch3.htm

and these civilian ones look ok -





some dimensions -

http://www.qdacsco-rigging.com/RATCHET-BINDER_158.html

I dont know if this is exact type the HET crews use - I would hope we can find an expert on the forum

cheers

Hello,

Not so sure that the kit is right, although I agree that the hood should sit 1 mm higher that it is installed in the kit.

I compared the kit hood front and back heigths, compared with the ones measured on the provided pic (see below).

My conclusion, it that the rear heigth is 3 mm too short (actual size is 2.6 cm instead of theoretical 2.9 cm).

The green line shows where the hood reaches the windscreen, if installed as recommended in the kit.

I understand. Here is a photo of my model with a simple modification

It surely looks better but the issue is that the wipers locating holes are too low on the kit.
They should be located on the windsceen part (B25), as they are just along the rubber joint on the actual truck.

So if you raise the wipers, you still are something like 1.5 mm too low, with your solution.

And if you raise again the hood, it will sit way too high compared with the lower part of the fender.

I think that model is very perfect. Therefore I add to produce new Wheels set because HB pattern is no 100% correct and all wheels in my kit is damaged.
I prepare engine w/ transmission and with Eduard PE set CPK.

Next update - winch
Small update for this weekend. I put together both the winch. A little problem is the narrow bend PE parts, because the material is quite hard.
