Hi Piotr -
It appears that you and I are building different versions of this truck! Thanks for the nice words. You know, with so many versions of the M1165A1 running around, there are just as many versions to make! I did some homework on my build before I started, specifically referring to images I purchased from Rob Skipper a few years ago, and some in theater images. As the source of the operational photos is unclear to me, I opted not to show them in the other post - I've cropped one and included some from Rob to clarify what I built:
Above you'll see the distinctly different elements of the truck - specifically the bed rails, and tools on the hood.
Unhappily, I'm good and jealous of the etch materials you are using - they look great! I though used scraps from the left over etch pile, lead foil,wire and whatever I could find to illustrate the intent, maybe "demonstrating convincing realism", and no, likely not perfect (lol) - below, a couple of pics of the truck in use, in fact, the first inspired the overall look of the build:
And there you have it - we arent building the same thing! lol - I'm really looking forward to your build - I really like your work very much -
Sorry, didn't mean to disrupt your build blog! again, I am really looking forward to it!
Cheers and happy model building!
