  1. Trumpeter ZIL135 w FROG7 rocket

    Has not happend much on it latley. Mounted the fenders to it and are waiting for the paint to dry on the wheels.
  2. Kenworth W-925 OLD vs NEW comments

    No they have not. Some of the frame crossmembers have numbers but the rest you have to compare the parts to the very bad illustrations on the drawing to see if you have the right part...
  3. Trumpeter ZIL135 w FROG7 rocket

    Got some paint on it at last, took longer then i thought it would do. Btw, the PE hinges for the rear platforms are not fun to do...
  4. Trumpeter ZIL135 w FROG7 rocket

    Yeah it is a beast. I have just started to paint it today but for the next one i am going to use spraypaint for it because it is very hard to get the brush to reach every part of the frame because of all the crossmembers and drivetrain. But it worked and if it does not look good i can always call it for "battlescars", most of it is not going to show anyways when it is done. Also found out how much i dont like working with PE parts this small.. unfortunatley there are alot of those to in this kit. The next step is to mount the fenders and skidplates then the frame is completed and it is just the rest of the body to do. Already started on them so there will probably bee new pic,s sometime next week with them on the frame. The supportlegs are also complete but will mount them afre i have tires on it, the manual had 2 choises for them, travelmode or combatmode. I decided to have it in combatmode, just because almost every pic of this thing on the web has it in travelmode and not combatmode ready to launch.
  5. Trumpeter ZIL135 w FROG7 rocket

    Done a little bit more. Most of the frame is complete, all of the steering linkage is in place, torsionbars for the suspension and mounts for the front supportlegs. Just missing some exhaustpipes but will mount them after the engines are painted. Both engine are done.
  6. Trumpeter ZIL135 w FROG7 rocket

    Started building on this just because i felt i needed a break from trucks and trailers. After about 10hrs of building this is how far i have come. There are alot of parts in this kit. Even the driveshafts are split up into 3 parts, mainshaft and the yokes that go in to the transferboxes. The transferboxes is between 5-7 parts each. According to the manual i am about to start on step 6 to assemble drivetrain for the 2 middle axles and by the looks of that page that is about 5-6hours of work..

  8. Scania T142

    Thanks, yes they do look good, only to bad that they are rarely seen on the roads anymore.
  9. Built this a few years ago and took these pic,s before i was going to paint it. I must have totally forgotten about it because i found it in a box today still unpainted. The 3 last pic,s is just to show how big the real thing was This is 1/35 and the Humvee is also in 1/35 Old pic,s + some new
  10. Trumpeter 1/35 Russian KV1 tank

    Thanks. The weathering turned out good on them, it was my first time trying to do it to. Yes, but they were built to work and looks was nowhere on their list of things their tanks needed to have. Unlike the german tiger tanks, they looked good but were totally useless during the russian winters. I have a few other kits of the different versions of KV1 and KV2 that i need to build sometime.
  11. Demag D7 + Nebelwerfer 1/35

    Built this so long ago that i honsestly have forgot what company made it. I think it was Italeri but i am not sure. Also in one pic i had the nebelwerfer in a weird angle so the tires looks crooked, but they are straight.
  12. Trumpeter 1/35 Russian KV2 tank

    Also one that i built a few years ago.
  13. Trumpeter 1/35 Russian KV1 tank

    Built this a few years ago.
  14. What did you get today?

    Bought this from ebay: And this: ZIL 135. They will probably look good next to my to MAZ 537 tanktransporter and KZKT 537 tractor once they are built... I actually know a person that owns a real ZIL 135 that was used for the luna rocket and that one is parked not far away from my parents house. Unfortunatley it is a non runner as both engines in it have siezed and the missile ramp is removed. He also owns a T-34 and 2-3 Diamond T tanktransporters from WWII
  15. Engine in Ford LTL 9000?

    It is that kit i am refering to, italeri 728. So they could basically have whatever the buyer wanted put in them? This could be fun when it is time to build it.
