Charles King built this M977 Hemtt. As he says....

..This vehicle is used to mount two 150-kw, 400-hz diesel engines that are interconnected through the power distribution unit and are mounted on a 10-ton M977 Hemtt. This is usually used in conjunction with Patriot missile systems....

Thanks Charles.

Really like how Charles constructed this kit. Subtle weathering and not overdone.

Great work on the detailing inside the driver panel too. Well done!

Charles once again you out did yourself. I like this one, has a balanced out look to it. Your cargo bed is sharp, nice detail work inside it especially with the tiedowns. Great Job man...

Thanks everyone. Just to let everyone know that this version I tried to build is called the EPP which stands for ELECTRIC POWER PLANT. The real vehicle is the prime power source for this mobile power generator.

Sorry Charles! I should have said this in the first post! I copied your text submitted with the pics, but somehow missed that bit!

I must say this is a very impressive build. I love the details in the cabin and the tie downs. May I ask how you did the tie-downs? I never knew of this version of Hemtt. I seem to learn something everyday. I have been looking at some of your work and they are really impressive. I see you build alot of usual stuff. Makes a nice change from the everyday stuff you see. Good job. Can't wait to see more of your work.

Have you entered any competitions with your work.

Thanks for your comments. The tie-downs were done simply taking a thin styerene rod and placing it the length of all the holes in a row. Then I just turned it over and voila. Simple and not too complicated.

The only model I ever entered into a competetion were the M1075 and a old model I had built a long time ago. The competition was over two years ago. I didn't get anything.

Yeah, it's simple but I guess there are other ways to acheive the same results, probably better. Maybe others have a much better way than the one I used. But like you said, it's simple.
