Not trying to be a show off or anything just trying to share some past builds. I think maybe I have been working on this truck/trailer campaign for the past fifteen years!

Scratch built 4 ton semi-trailer.

Converted 2 axle semi-tractor.




(I did not know at the time that these tractors only came in hard cab models!)

Scratch built Ben Hur trailer and scratch/converted 1 1/2 ton Chevy 2-axle truck.

Still don't know what I might be interested in building for this campaign unless it might be a FlatRack trailer to go with my HEMTT LHS.

I didn’t build a 1:72 kit since...well, so many winters. I was planning the Sd.Kfz. 9 with the Sd. Ah. 116 tank transporter from Trumpeter, but Tat will be doing that one



No worries Raul. Please don't let my planned build stop you from doing so. Cheers, Tat

No problem Tat. The Morris (Ford actually) Quad plus the 25 PDR will be a real joy to build.

Cheers

As a newbie to armor modeling this is an excellent opportunity to acquire the Miniman gooseneck trailer. Tankograd Am Sp. #3004 has 2 photos of what I believe is a M983 towing a M870A1 trailer. These are the only photos I have been able to find to date. Taking advantage of some of the beautiful work you guys have posted I think I should be able to build a credible model. Planning time!!!

Let's just say I got a deal I couldn't refuse on it. But I had to bite the bullet on this one. Been wanting a M911 since the 90s

This one sounds very interesting. I think I can work this nicely with another campaign I just signed-up for.

I'll be building this kit for the "Improvised Ingenuity" campaign.


So, if you agree, I'll build the FAMO with the Sd.Ah.116 trailer.


I've been planning to put these two together to represent this picture.


I'll enlist if this passes muster.

I hope you build the Bridgelayer as shown in the photo with a blown final drive and the track re-threaded to allow it to be moved. Either way it will be an amazing project.

Hats off to you!

This would be my most desired Truck / Trailer project if and when Trumpeter would bless us with the MA3 Semi-Tractor and 3-axle tank transport!



(I was going to scratch/convert the tractor using the new Scud kit but now the project is on hold till this kit comes thru.)

Hi Mike, I have to agree with you, I am sitting on pins and needles, waiting for this monster to come to my nearest hobby store/on-line vendor.

That is the plan. Since the kit has individual track links, I should be able to build it as it's in the pic.

For producing either power or speed, gearing and stroke are equally as important as cylinders and displacement.

Offenhauser Indy cars were only four cyl but with monster displacement and stroke.

Just trying to offer more encouragement for this campaign and help keep things moving.


M1 Limber by P.S.P., AFV Club 155mm Long Tom backdated to WWII and finally a home built Mack NO6 7 1/2 ton artillery tractor.
