I posted about these kits some time ago (HERE) and recently saw a good offer on the internet for a set of five so being a sucker for cheap-as-chips offers that are too good to refuse, well of course I ordered them - and just got them a couple of days ago.
I did a bit of chopping up and these reliable workhorses might be able to serve in a few modern game scenarios in other roles rather than just as the basic truck
I had an old 1/87 scale Roco Dragon Wagon that I was never going to use so I cut off the cab and swapped it for the M35 cab.
I'm pretty sure the M35 wouldn't be suitable in this role for towing a huge load like this, I don't think it's powerful enough, but I might be wrong, and please feel free to leave a comment in the comments' section if you do know.
In any case, in spite of any inaccuracies I can live with them as these are just gaming models.
However, this next configuration really is pure fantasy. A long wheelbase and multiple wheels.
The platform and crane came off a toy. Be kind to me, in my mind's eye it looks at least feasable.
Next step will be painting, I'll try and update this article once they're painted with some pictures.
Keep safe all.
