Looks Great! good detail the weathering looks real nice. One thing though and I had seen this in an earlier post. I think that the front wheels should turn slightly. It would seem to add more to the story. But it is a great peice. top Notch.

AWESOME!
Looks great and very realistic! Is the truck it the Italeri HEMTT?
The figures are excellently painted and the water bottle inside the cockpit is lovely! Where did you get it?

Yes, this is the Italeri truck. A bunch of additions were made to make it more correct. The water bottle (there are actually two in there somewhere) is from the Tamiya M1A1/A2 kit, kindly provided by Brent Sauer. I think you can get a bunch from Accurate Armor.

I kept this one simple for shipping/traveling purposes. It's not mine to keep.

Dan, that's been bantered about here by some of the guys, but I don't think there is enough photographic evidence out there for someone to do it right. The M88 is a mean looking track. And that scene at Objective Curly would be neat to make as a dio.

How did you find the kit anyway? Did the parts come together well? Am thinking of getting this kit so any feedback would be great.

It is easy to find here in the US. Most hobby shops have it, even.

Wheels need replaced with AM ones for sure. Detail is soft but there. Eduard does a nicer job with it, and provides the logos for the front and for the mudflaps. Pro Art does some nice detail sets too. If you leave the door open or windows down I would suggest getting the Pro Art interior set.

Awesome! Nice job on the figures! Maybe flatten the tires alittle to give the truck some weight. What do you think? My hats off to you for a job well done!

Yes, I agree on the tires. I should have done that. I think it is too late for this one. The mountings are a bit fragile. Forewarning for others. Do this before mounting them. Actually they are a little flat but not enough. I should have done just a little more. Of course you do not want to take too much off.
