Mirko Römer Still a long way to go. Waiting for the Tankograd HEMTT double edition. Safety belts and brake parts need to scratched next.

Maicon Werplotz Thats quite nice so far....the PE parts came with the kit?
21. March at 15:51:26
Mirko Römer Tetra Model Works, see pics attached. There's also a set for the Patriot trailer available. The Modelcollect kit has no pe-parts at all, but the MAN-series has very nice ones.
21. March at 16:01:29
Dave Flitton Looks really good!

Bryn Crandell Looking goof. Watching to the end.

Mirko Römer D-Day. Decision Day. Modelcollect provides us with a truly beautiful kit - but it's an incomplete hybrid... So does Tetra Models. The kit has got both winches, the smaller one on the right for self recovery and a bigger one, that can be mounted on the midship platform for towing engineer equipment up on the trailer. When I found rare pics of an M983A2 LET (Light Equipment Transporter), I discovered that it doesn't have the self recovery winch any more. It was replaced by a box. On the left, the fuel tank got some steps. The decals from Modelcollect only represent early M983 tractors used by air defence units.

For an early M983 the next problem arose from the Tetra Models set which is - apart from the following lines - really superb. It does have the late style footpegs of an M983 A2 /A2R / A4 but the big platform part for the lying sprare wheel that an M983 usually carries. On the other hand it lacks any parts for the self recovery winch bushings/roller housings.

Due to the decals I opted for the early M983 variant and scratched these parts. Next steps will be installing a winch cable and the small crane to the right of the engine. So much fun, thank you everybody… ;)

Treehugger Looks maybe like the type of trucks seen in Rambo First Blood. :)

Mirko Römer I closed the gap between roof and windscreen with some sheet strip, added photoetched wipers and bonnet fasteners. Gearshift was made of some bent wire.

Neuling Looks good. Deserves better pics.
18. February at 22:54:51
Mirko Römer Thanks for your nice comments. It's not ready yet, at least the wheels need more care and there a some more details, I could work on. And yes, it deserves a better camera! :) My own Smartphone made it look very green and grey - but if you need help, just ask your wife! Ok, a tan filter helped as well. What I used so far: AK RC 026 O.D., RC 301 Hemp, RC 024 faded O.D., RC 230 dull dark green, some Vallejo washes and pigments, Tamiya clear paints over alclad chrome, AK streaking grime, AK rust streaks, mig tan filter for NATO vehicles, brengun wipers and small chain. You see, it's some sort of a prooving ground...

Mirko Römer Just a quick glimpse with cellphone pics
22. December 2018 at 16:24:42
Frank Krüger I like the model. Looks great! Beautifully dusty ... :) And I like the pictures too.
22. December 2018 at 20:04:11
Mirko Römer Thanks, Frank! The model has it's flaws. The mudguards were too wide, no MAN livery, the Chassis lacks some struts, the crane was wrapped for a reason. Some parts could be finer, check that solid wrecker boom. There's a reason why Modelcollect offers these kits in a pre-built and painted Version. Otherwise it was joy to work on, no surprises. A real beginner's kit, highly recommended.
The model was painted with AK's Real Colours FS 34079 Forest Green, lightended in some areas. Absolutely fantastic colours, very convincing. For giving that dusty look I used Vallejo Pigments Light Sienna after a wash of Vallejo's Dark Green wash.

Frank Krüger Mirko, many thanks for the great information. It's always exciting to see how other model makers are doing and what products they use. On the way, we can learn a lot from each other.
I wish you on this way beautiful Christmas holidays and a happy new year !!! :)

Neuling Yes! I`ve just finished the Meng Bradley kit (1/35) and remember well all nuts and bolts of this apc. You really made the very best out of a kit in scale 1/72!
23. December 2018 at 18:48:47
Mirko Römer The base sand is from Utah Beach, Normandy. Totally wrong for Baghdad 2004... The kit was a pleasure to work on, big fun. The blanket was made from lead foil which I bought on Ebay - the seller turned out to be Modellfan-author Raimund Schäler. Thanks, Raimund! :)
