Looks like an enormous kit.

It would be presented in the "500+ Campaign"

Some people say the launcher and radar kit is build one or the other. Can you let us know if it has enough parts to build both.

The rear engine side from the Trumpy tractor is very poorly detailled, and this is quite visible when the model is finished !!!! !


What is missing :



Any pictures, informations ? TIA

I wonder if the Real Model HEMTT Engine will fit it? It is very well detailed. It also includes the missing brake cylinders as well.

According to this video (53 minutes in) the clear parts are packed separately with padding. I really can't fault Trumpeter for this; their protective measures are better than average.

Pascal, I suggest dipping the scratched part in Johnson's Kleer (I think that is the European brand name) acrylic floor polish. It has worked surprising well for me.

Hello Pascal, I have some leftover Italeri HEMTT windshields to spare. They might do the job. If interested, drop me a PM.

N,
I got the tractor on the mail last week. Glad to see it goes together well.

Pascal, Is there any wiring digrams or parts for it on the trailors. I was wondering if at least the Generator set has power cables to the launcher section.
