1/35 Trumpeter M1078 LMTV Standard Cargo Truck

Post by Beno on Sat 04 Sep 2010, 2:16 pm

Caution! Military content past this point.

Just finished this one last night. It's been on the bench for some time now but I'm happy how it has turned out. This is a fairly expensive kit ($87) but builds up very nice. The truck was constructed out of the box and I added some stores in the back, mainly so I didn't have to weather up the tray too much.

I have read that the interior in incorrect, but as I was not modelling any particular vehicle it didn't matter.

















Thanks,

Ben.

Good to see they've got the important supplies in there although I would have expected a slab or 2 of VB...

Well it is a Yank truck, they wouldn't know a good beer if it glassed them in the face, and it would have to be XXXX or Bundy Rum if it was Aussie army for me.

Thanks for the comments all. I think it's my best job at weathering so I am pretty proud it. Slowly getting better at this model building game.

And sorry Shoey, you started breaking up on the 2 way after saying something about 80 series $#@%^%&* shhheeeaaaaazzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz. It must be the hills around here.

Who cares if it's Army - had enough of those when I was in the forces. Your truck does remind me of the beer trucks that used to supply us with nourishment on the field (don't know what happened to the food)?

Nice build mate!
