Thank you Revell Fan for all the great display boxes! They look fantastic!
You are welcome!
P.S.: I know it's a bit late for Easter but there are some Easter Eggs in these kits..! I don't want to tell you what they are, maybe some of you find out?
P.P.S.: Any need for an 1:18 version???
A little "finger practise": The Landram trailer.
More coming soon.
This add-on is a simple recolour and kitbash of the established Landram parts. I have completed unfolding and adapting the parts and am now making some quick and dirty instructions. Anyone in for a test build?
BTW, this concept is based on an idea by our admin @Rhaven Blaack .
WOW! I love it! You know what this means? You are going to need a bigger BOX, or at least a seperate box for thr trailor.
Having trouble typing because an ad on the page keeps moving the page up and down. Have to reload and get my typing in while it reloads the page. If I have a lot to say I have to type in MS Word then do a quick swipe copy and paste. Like for this time.
I can try to test it.
You are correct!
Great! I'll PM you as soon as the instructions are ready.
Very cool looking! This video clip shows what something like that might look moving along. I can watch these Hagglunds BV206 running around all day! What a toy to have.
Now that's a great find, John! Thank you! This will give me some inspiration on the coupling.
On the BV 206 (AKA the Small Unit Support Vehicle in the US Army) the coupling is a drive shaft and two strut. The vehicle steers by articulating the front and back cabs with the struts. There is a BV 206 on Paper Replika, but the rear cab is a bed style. My unit had SUSVs, they will go nearly anywhere, they are amazing in the Arctic.
I have studied several images of the BV 206 and found out that there are some cables running from the towing vehicle to the trailer. What's most interesting is, the shape of the back compartment where the cables emerge from the towing vehicle is similar to the back compartment of the Landram. So I guess the design would actually work!
The Russians have taken this to the extreme with their double track vehicles. This vehicles rear unit is carrying 50 tons!!
Holy moly! I am impressed!
I have always admired Russian engineering. Sometimes, a faux pas, in the U.S., but i don't care, they make some really impressive stuff. Russia is a great country, I wish things would smooth out so we could have a huge block of normal people to counter the insanity that is taking place elsewhere, of which we, like Russia, are in reality, on the same page. IMHO
INDEED! Just imagine, despite all the great and successful missions from NASA, it seems that the US techs get more sophisticated and elaborate but they neglect the simple things. Everything is supposed to get faster, cheaper and "easier". However, no-one really knows how to operate the Saturn V any more (even though we still have two of them at our disposal). The Space Shuttle was decomissioned after 34 years. But the Soyuz has been flying since 1966 almost without pause and any major changes and catastrophies. And it continues. And continues. And continues. Russian technology. Solid, simple, efficient and sturdy.
