Bending the mesh for the winch cover.
A little more finished.
Looking good. The winch cable end is not correct though. It should be a clevis w/a removable pin so it is easy to attach other pieces to it. Like below.
Some come w/the Tamiya M26 Dragon wagon. I’m not sure where else to get any.
Perfect. Where did that one come from?
I think it is from Tamiyas 2 1/2 ton truck acessory set , it has a vice and other repair tools monkey wrench Etc.
I like the result of the Artistic Wire you used for the winch. I will have to grave some. Thanks for sharing!
I wanted to display the crane in the deployed position but you need the side support arms deployed. While the support arms are posittionable thebase pad is molded onto the arms in the travel mode.Here is how I fixed that.
Here’s it all painted and installed.
I left the jack posts loose they’ll be glued in at the finish.
Just a little more assembled.
Very good built so far, pay attention to the grove crane.
Trumpeter has made it a bit easy for himself. Found a good photo on printerest.
I assume the crane that you are talking about is the equilment hanging on the rear end ?
I talk about the crane.
Here is some more info on detailing the crane. It is meant for the Italeri crane, but most applies to Trumpeter’s too. It is missing all sorts of hoses and lines.
Thanks Arty , but I’m not planning to super detail it.
I’m old and I’m not shure if I’ll wake up the next morning.
It’s all a question of time.
Thanks for the reference!
