Hi!

Who makes the truck models?

Sorry if I missed the explanation in a previous post.

Primarch

I knew someone would ask that before I had time to check!

I kept them carefully in a bag with the product code on:
CM14

I think they were supposed to be Chinese, but Chinese stuff is so often based on Russian kit, Maksim may well be correct.

I didnt note the manufacturer as I've bought them 2 years running at Salute (UK convention) & since I know the stand & the guy running it, didnt think I'd need the name... Ooops.

I'll try to look it up ASAP, but it probably wont be til monday
:(

That army is looking waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay cool. I can't wait to see all the re-enforcements from FW painted up as well.

Also, thanks for the advice with the flying bases, I wanna do some like that and never knew how to!

It makes me feel ashamed as to how much you paint in a week compared to how little I do. I am very jealous!

Cheers

Chris

CM-14 is a Scotia code.

And the great majority of Red Chinese kit was modified from Russian kit.

It's definitely not a US M-548. Sorry, L-4. The cab is all wrong.

I would think that the peice would look off next to the "larger" 6mm Epic pieces.

Does it look small, Tuffskull?

Shalom,
Maksim-Smelchak.

Just a guess off the top of my head, late at night?! ?:;): ?

Weapons Hold Status! ?

Nothing in either of my Janes or Warsaw Pact Armies book? ? ?

Sometimes 6mm/ 1/285th models are not always accurate renderings? ?

Hmmm... more research is needed... ???

Maksim is correct in that it is a Scotia piece

CM14 Chinese Type 56 artillery tractor

http://www.scotiagrendel.com/scotia/sco ... china.html

Useful links

my knowledge of Chinese armour is virtually non-existent, but I am guessing that the following Chinese artillery tractors are close relatives of the Type 56.

Type 60
http://www.sinodefence.com/army/transport/type60.asp

Type 77
http://www.sinodefence.com/army/transport/type77.asp

BTW the Chinese don't just copy Soviet vehicles either

That's where I was heading next ... good research, Jimbo! ?

And yes, amazingly the Chinese do come up with some of their own designs... the K63 APC is a good example. No Western army would use them, but the Iraqis had some in the first Gulf War. I remember seeing the burnt out hulls on the news... not an amazingly resilient vehicle... :D ?

And of course, their version of the Hummer is... well... "fascinating"... ???

Well, it looks like I don't need to do much research then!
That certainly is the correct identification.

They are a little small against Epic stuff, not perfect by any means, but they work out OK I think - better than most of the transports I looked at.

I only ever buy proxies like this at shows where I can see the models first & always carry a Leman Russ and/or Chimera so I can make a comparison on the spot.

Very useful think to carry in your pocket that, a MBT... :oo

Peter,

Hi!

Primarch.


Thanks. I wasn't aware that over 1,000 posts was laudable.

I'd prefer just to be regarded as a good contributor and valued member.

Shalom,
Maksim-Smelchak.

Days 9-13, Days on Dartmoor
Well, OK, so Wednesday I was still at home, but I worked all day, then packed & went out so nothing got done at all!

Anyway, for the shortest entry ever, Nothing got done at all from Thursday to Sunday as I was hiking on Dartmoor  :D
