    Looking for V100 chassis pics

    Hello Rory! Thanks a lot for your comment! Yes, I planned to add the third fire extinguisher, but I wasn't aware of the cable and the handle - now I also want to add those. Pity that the handle almost surely won't be visible after I close up the hull. Thanks also for the close-up on the...

    Old photos of 5 ton trucks - M813, M923

    Hello! Thanks a lot for your comments! I don't know about now, but back then in 2001 Kaiserslautern was as close to an American town as possible under German government - you could see Amreican Police cruisers on the streets (crewed by MPs in BDUs), there were American housing districts, on my...

    Thanks a lot for your comments! Tomorrow I'll try to post more! @Guyfang - of course it's hard to tell exactly after all these years, but I tried to illustrate the shot on the map below: I rememeber standing on the Von Miller Strasse while shooting the photo, I was biking along that street...

    Hello! Thanks a lot for your comments! I'm glad you like'em and I’ll gladly post some more: @Guyfang - since you mentioned Rhine Ordnance Barracks (near the Opel factory) - these were there: They also had an M578 cherry picker on display, but they would't let me in to...

    Old photos of 5 ton trucks - M813, M923

    Hello! Looong time ago - in 2001 I’ve been studying in Kaiserslautern, Germany and as a modeller from Poland I was fascinated by the presence of US troops and equipment literally everywhere around town. Back then I took some photos, I’m posting some of them and if anybody has some use for them...

    Looking for V100 chassis pics

    Thanks a lot, Rory! One question - one vet who used M706E2 in Vietnam mentioned a master kill switch located under the drivers seat, do you have something like that on your machine? Maybe you have a photo of it? I've been working on the interior. First I painted everything Tamiya grey primer...

    Looking for V100 chassis pics

    Thanks a lot for your kind words, Rory! Like I wrote, without your photos I couldn't do it! I removed the support structures from the axles, reinforced them with wire (it’s brass after all, not steel) and I have dry fitted the front axle. Let’s see if I can keep the wheels movable or if I will...

    Looking for V100 chassis pics

    Hello! Here are the photos I promised: As you can see I got a spare tranny cover from the printer. I plan to make the tunnel cover and the toolbox cover from styrene plate: Most important would be if it fits - that is if I got the dimensions right. Luckily it's not so bad...

    Looking for V100 chassis pics

    Hello everybody! I'd say I'm done with the axles. Here's what it looks like: And rear looks like this: I want to have a hole through both axles to be able to reinforce them with a steel wire. I want the wheels to be able to rotate and I want the front wheels to be positionable - a model...

    Looking for V100 chassis pics

    Hello! I have some progress here: I think I'm going to the printers with it to ask how much this is going to cost. I think I'll 3D print one, try to fit it to the Hobby Boss Body, maybe make some adjustments and then print another one. I still have to finish my axles, too. Thanks for...

    Looking for V100 chassis pics

    Hello! Small update - I drew up the transmission cover, since I felt it was necessary: I plan to use the parts I have for the top portion of the engine compartment. This is also to keep the dimensions of the 3D print down. Thanks for looking and have a nice day Paweł
