once again your posts have been an inspiration for one of my creations. (I need to look less at this site…)
let’s start with the tank:
Looks like there’s something missing in your post …
Looks like they are both coming along well.
seats from Mutt
Some detail addicted
Brake system (from old m551) and wiring glued
tank wheel, from standard m923 rim and duplicate resin tire (somewhat enlarged from the one proposed by Realmodel, which made a thin version…)
brake drums from t-70
Nice job on the tank.
it’s…two half tank from Monogram/ Revell to save te front-bottom wall
rear layout it’s quite complete
Exaust protection from leopard 2 air intake mesh
Looking nice so far. Small world, I’m putting the new wheels on my M1062 this morning. I’d like to build an M818 towing the redone Real Model tanker one day.
Is the front axle on an airlift system? I only ask because my (identical) kit was a little high on the front axle until I modified / corrected the type of wheel I’d fitted. The sub frame wasn’t seated properly first time out.
to correct the height of the trailer, I used the fifth wheel of the tractor as a reference.
I did not touch the rear axle but detached the front axle and adjusted it via two threaded screws in the tank
new wheels are coming!
Looking Great…like all the work you have done so far.
