    Hi Ben. Could you rephrase the question in layman terms. Are you referring to the rotatable wheel in front of the tracks?

    Will do when the weather permits. Thank you.
    The M915 kit contains both semi-trailer and tractor. I heavily modified the kit to make it a single flatbed. The kit is great and well detailed. I just don't like the tires mounting method. They could have improved in that area. I was hoping for something more like Italeri's Tyre mounts. The most easiest tyres to mount.
    Much appreciated.
    Thank you kindly.

    The M972 Flatbed/w Excavator
    This is a build I have been working on for some time now. It's a heavy modification of the M915 kit from Trumpeter. As always, I decided to spice things up a bit. I wanted to do something different. So, I kit-bashed the trailer and tractor to bring forth this combo unit. The name came about by using the first number of the M915 and the 2 last digits of the M872 trailer. Hence, M972, which is a combination of both.The Hitachi excavator is from Hasegawa which I built as a burnt out model. The idea came from the pic I found while searching the web. Lots of pics. Hope you like the results.
