Minuteman III booster transport vehicle

20 December 2014 - 05:59 AM

I just found this while cruising around on the inter-webs today.

looks like a Pete 362 with lots of wheels hauling a trailer with a rocket booster or an unarmed Minuteman III intercontinental ballistic missile.

 

I also found an article from 2008 stating that a Minuteman III booster transport vehicle tipped over on the gravel access road, dumping the 75,000-pound rocket booster on the ground after the road gave out under the truck. No injuries were suffered but it did take $5.6 million to recover.

1/25 scale Peterbilt hoods

How many of you out there would buy a resin Peterbilt 378/357, 388, 389, 367, 365 hoods in 1/25 scale. I know that there is 1/24 scale versions out there but if your like me and only like to build in 1/25 scale. The hoods are not built or molded yet because I wanted to know how many of you would buy one before I start making them so I don't wast my time and money.
