Here’s an old build from 2014 It was posted on the old website.
thanks for sharing that, I was looking for builds since I plan to start mine soon.
too bad its still not used by the US army
This has been on my bucket list for a while so I am along for this build. What was the time frame for the use of this monster?
the marines and army used it in Operation Iraqi Freedom i believe
The following Pics. show how I made the Track adjustable , otherwise it’s too slack. This way you can adjust it to your taste.
Nice to see you posting this. I have the same kit in pile of kits to be build before I depart the 3rd rock from the sun.
Donald I love the work to make the track tensioner “live”. Do your recall as this was awhile back and thinking out loud, could you not just remove a track link to make the track less slack?
Thinking back I don’t think that was an option as the track would be too tight.
This was quite a while ago and my memory doesn’t work all the time.
Looking at the kit parts I think they molded the Track Mounts in the full closed position, that doesn’t look quite right.
Thanks for posting this again - I enjoyed following the first time!
I’m currently re-posting all of my previous builds there’s a lot of them.
I look at this as my legacy , for when I’m gone no one else will ever remember that I was here.
I thank you all for reading and watching . I hope and wish my efforts help at least in some small way
I always wished Meng would do a civy version .
Or at least some aftermarket folks provide the conversion
This guy built one using 3D printed parts a few years ago on the old AutoModeler (auto side of Armorama). He says he got the parts from www.firecatdesigns.com, but the website doesn’t seem to work anymore.
Thanks Gino - too bad ( for me ) about the parts not being available.
Excellent idea to repost this blog. Thank you for taking the time to do so. I think I downloaded most of it last time but on my old computer. Now it’s right here in front of me again but on my new computer
Actually I’ll be reposting all that I recovered.
Now here’s the rest of this one.
Now the finished Pics.
That finishes this build.
Looks great. Thanks for sharing this build again.
