Thanks for your PM Milo, I've replied as requested.

I think you should consider making the double wheel sets for the trailer. I've just built four wheels, (Two pairs), and the amount of clean up required is rediculous. They took forever as there's flash everywhere!!

Damon & Jim,
Thank you. For 15 years I made a really huge number of models. Some good, some less good. Also, I've had a lot to build and paint. But still I want to invent and produce new models and conversion sets.
Engine set will add to the e store after its completion.

Here's the radio rack in the cab (from Primeportal) :



But this picture shows the earlier SINCGARS version (not the later ASIP one ).

Empty rack :

Nice progres - you are faster than me!

I am still curious how you can paint it after completion - I am scared of camouflage painting even now, when I have some underpaint on mine - that body is so complicated!

Miloslav has a special paint dipping tank. You carefully lower the built kit and the paint just adheres' to the proper parts staying away from any clear pieces. Then its into a drying booth. During the drying process the final weathering starts to bleed thru the paint and Voila! A totally painted and weathered model in less than a minute
