Actually a Trumpeter kit.
Fit is generally good, wheels poor and I have a resin set coming soon.

I’m in.

Thanks.
I think it stands too tall and I might cut the stand down.

Dan,
Well done, looks promising. Coincidentally, I have a similar project on the go at the moment,
but in 1/72 scale. It will be part of a series of ‘technicals’ that I am working on. The first is complete,
depicting an armed Land Rover during the Civil War in Chad (photo attached).
You’re quite right, the rocket launcher is too high. Perhaps the two images will give you a better idea,
compared with the height of the vehicles.

Looking forward to seeing the result.

Paul

Thanks much.
Love the camo pattern!
I get a kick out of these technicals and their crazy weapon set ups.

I’ve got the Trumpeter box somewhere in the stash- it came with a multi barrel rocket launcher towed behind. I’ve never seen this boxing before.

Your rocket stand would probably be okay if this had a roof like a pick-up but it looks like a roll-over waiting to happen on this chop top! Apart from the height of the mount it’s looking pretty damn good.

Like Karl said if the truck had a cab then the two stories is needed, I would probably remove the bottom level/cage.

Here’s the Trumpeter version-

I think you all are right about the height.

No reason for it to be that high. They have a very minimal blast signature. Remember some poor Jihadist has to hand load those rockets into the tubes. At least with a roof he’d have a place to stand. Thing is, they don’t even need that huge honkin’ launcher. You can launch rockets very accurately off of a pile of rocks.

I lowered the frame.
I think it looks much better.
Thanks for the inputs.

Outstanding!

James,

If you were referring to the Africans in the Chad scene, they are 3D printed items (1/72 scale) from FC Model Trend.

Excellent job so far Dan!
