While I was home sick I did manage to make a few models (in between a lot of lying down and doing nothing). One of which I was building for a friend - who just wanted the model built - he would paint it etc.
This was the model:
I'd almost bought one of these myself a couple of times over the years - but had decided against it as I couldn't really see (apart from raid style one off games) how I would use this in a normal game. So I was interested to see what the model was like.
I took no photos during the build - which took a while - mainly because of frustration and time off to recover from pulling my hair out. The plans are fairly basic and I struggled at times to get certain parts to fit. Much of the heavy trailer infrastructure under the tray (no idea what it's called) had to be drastically cut and re-shaped to fit. The fold-down ramps at the back of the tray could not sit (IMHO) as shown in the plans so I had to dummy them up a little. My biggest problem was trying to get the paired wheels to stay parallel. Fortunately a lot of that in slightly out of view so I'll let you judge that for yourselves.
Here's the finished trailer - with T-55 for effect:
And now with Ural 375 tow (for greater effect)
I actually like the finished product... Enough to buy one for myself? Not sure... we'll see...
