Seems like a lot of new truck&trailer kits are going to hit the shelves in the coming months.
Is there a chance that another Truck And Trailer Campaign is set up for 2018?
I will surely join, if one is announced: my to-do list includes several couples...

Ditto Mr. K - a BIG thumbs up!

I really like the rusty decking.

Do not understand why Takom did not go for the three axle trailer???

Hi,
I apologize for being late. I finally finished this combo. Length is about 26 inches.







Thanks for this great campaign and for all your comments.

The winch? It's just an imaginative removal.
On the military truck Kraz-260, the winch sits at the rear of the chassie, below the bed. On this -6446 tractor, I fixed it in a new position instead of throwing away. Maybe it's a what-if structure.

Thank you for your comment.

Mr. K, I like what you have finished so far. Where did you get the information on the winch?

Hi,

Some progress until today.



Andrew (Firstik), could you extend the deadline until Sep 10th? I want time to perfectly finish it.
Regards,
K.

A somewhat better photo of those arm rests on the D7:

Looks like the vertical side of the plastic chassis tub is slightly warped inward. I think you have one solution to the problem and you have taken care of it.

I probably would have clamped the fender to the chassis tub till the glue dried in hopes that the fender would pull the chassis side outward. Would have been just my luck I would have ended up with two warped pieces instead of just one.

The gap I mean is this bit right here:



It's less a gap I guess and more a shallow indentation. I thought it was for the bottom of the sliding side panels to fit into, but of course that was before I realized they were sliding.

Gap from the top??? Not sure what you mean. There should be no gap between the fender and the body side.

The sliding side walls on the model can be made to actually work if you are careful with the spacing of the tracks and the gluing.

p.s. The Sd. Kfz. 10 at the Patton actually came with black leather pads running along the tops of these sliding side doors/walls. They made for very nice arm rests while driving! I doubt they were original WWII but the Patton did not add them and all the upholstery on the vehicle matched; seats, back rests and arm rests.


Hard to see in this photo but they are there.

Nicely done. I like your weathering, not overdone but enough to make the vehicle look used.

A bit more progress on my Sd.Kfz 10:



In the following two photos you can see a gap between the hull sides and fenders.





I thought the sidewall parts would fit in here and fill this, but I realized that they actually fit into railings and can be moved up or down. I'm not sure if the gap from the top is supposed to be there and I'm considering filling it with some very thin sheet styrene.

I consider my entries finished:




Images are not the best possible, but the couple is almost half a meter/20 inches long...

The level of detail in the current D7, Sd. Kfz. 10 kit is far cry (great improvement) over even the best kits of a few years back.

Got some more work in. Interior bits painted and glued down, and the dashboard decals applied.

How were the MG's and the tracks on your kit ?



John the whole kit is pretty well detailed it was a shame to close it all up. The tracks went together without a problems Dragons link count was pretty much on the money
