    Well, now that the time has come that I am close to finishing my USS Essex CV-9 I thought it would be nice to get something new started. In late 2011 HobbyBoss released this beautiful looking kit and I couldn’t resist buying it. E.T. Model has been so kind to send me review samples of their products for the M1070 & M1000 HETS, so that is gonna be fun! I got these extras:

    I plan on buying some stuff from Voyager model as well. The anti IED sensor looks pretty nice I think. Any pictures of the real vehicle with this sensor are welcome.
    Well, time for some pictures, what am I gonna use:

    The last days I have been busy building the Gooseneck of the M1000 trailer. Realising that this was the easiest part of the build, I know I will be very busy with this build!
    But I like it, and that’s important!

    The gooseneck went together very well! and is detailed with E.T. Model E35-133 M1000 Trailer PE set

    Here are the pictures:

    I have been very busy with the 1/35 M1000 trailer the last two weeks but am proud to say I almost finished it with ET Model’s E35-133 M1000 Trailer set as well.
    The build of the Heavy Equipment Trailer is a lot of fun and very challenging because of all the duct, PE and aligning everything the right way.
    Please scroll along with the following pictures to learn more:

    this was during the progress of getting the cables / ducts where needed.

    started with attaching all the cables (M1070 Truck Transporter & M1000 HET)

    The control box of the M1000 HET trailer (I guess?) the left one shows ET Model’s and the right shows how it would be without ET Model.
    The hatch can be opened and closed.

    the controls of the M1000. note the difference between ET Model and HobbyBoss (M1070 Truck Transporter & M1000 HET)

    The storage box on the left side of the M1000 trailer. again, left ET Model’s, right HobbyBoss.
    Note the hinge and the lock.

    Painting the woodland camo on the M1000 trailer was a real challenge for me because of all the gaps and such. At first I painted the M1000 trailer’s bottom in NATO black, switched it around and painted the trailer bed and gooseneck NATO green. After the trailer bed was painted in base colour I found it the easiest to paint the rest by hand to avoid over spray and all the hassle of masking the trailer.

    After the NATO black and NATO brown were applied on the trailer bed and the gooseneck I airbrushed a gloss coat on top of it to seal everything and make it ready for decals and weathering!

    Here’s a shot of the gooseneck:

    The trailer bed from the top:

    Top M1000 woodland camo (M1070 Truck Transporter & M1000 HET)

    Painting the rear with an airbrush would have been very difficult with a lot of masking. painting by hand was the solution

    M1000 NATO camo (M1070 Truck Transporter & M1000 HET)

    M1000 woodland camo paint (M1070 Truck Transporter & M1000 HET)

    When I find some time I will continue with either the M1000 by applying decals and weathering it, or I’ll continue on the M1070 truck tractor.

    I hope you guys like it! if you do please let me know by liking or leaving a comment, I’ll appreciate it 🙂

    The M1070 Tractor build is a very time consuming build. All the aftermarket PE and other sets make the progress go very slow, but I have some pictures for you for now.

    The chassis is as good as finished. Some detail need to be added after the base coat has been applied to make sure I can easily reach everything with my airbrush. I started with the rear of the M1070:
    The towing system with a lot of PE:

    I made some progress with the interior of the cabin. ET Model’s interior set and Real Model’s interior set came to great use and add some nice detail to the cabin of the M1070 truck.

    I made a start with the Crew Protection Kit (CPK) by ET Model and found it easy to be used. The CPK is nicely detailed but its a pitty you have to put all the bolts on the plates yourself.

    In this update of my M1070 Truck Tractor build I will show you guys the in base coloured chassis, the installed Crew Protection Kit (CPK) and the painted resin engine created by Real Model.

    The chassis is painted in base color and is ready to be painted in the three color NATO camouflage pattern
    Here are the pictures of the chassis with the rear deck:

    M1070 Chassis (M1070 Truck Transporter & M1000 HET)

    Next up is the painted M1070 resin engine by Real model. This engine is a work of art and soon a review of this engine will be published on MSM. The engine is ready to be weathered and attached to the chassis of the M1070 truck. After installing the engine, a lot of extra wires / hoses etc have to be scratched to represent the correct engine installation.
    Please check the following pictures:

    Next up is the Crew Protection Kit also known as the CPK. This kit is designed to protect the personnel in the cabin from attacks. The CPK exists of thick armour plates that are mounted around, on top and underneath the M1070 Truck cabin.

    The past time I have been busy handpainting the remaining two NATO colours on the M1070 Truck. I used the following colours:

    • Vallejo Black Grey 70.862 (NATO Black)
    • Vallejo Russian Green 71017 (NATO Green)
    • Vallejo Saddle Black 70940 (NATO Brown)

    The green was applied by airbrush and the black and brown by brush. I choose to do this by brush to save myself a lot of struggle masking the fragile surfaces (lot of photo etched details). Even without the PE the masking of this truck would have been a hell, and airbrushing freehand would not get me the hard edge camouflage I want.

    I installed Real Model’s engine as well! with all the extra hoses etc around it. I used Miloslav’s build as a reference for the hoses, the rest is just fantasy. Anyway, Im very satisfied with the result!

    Here are some pictures of the chassis with the installed engine:

    NATO painted CPK (M1070 Truck Transporter & M1000 HET)

    Decals CPK (M1070 Truck Transporter & M1000 HET)

    a sneak preview of the weathered interior! lots of dust inside!

    Ow, forgot to mention, the decals are applied as well, so next up is the weathering of this monster! after that the remaining parts like blast panels, antennas, mirrors etc etc will be applied.

    Do you guys like it this far?

    p.s. the road wheels and engine hood are dryfitted so might be slightly of axis.

    That was it for now! next up is weathering the M1000 trailer! looking forward to it as it will be a real challenge to weather this trailer nicely.

    Thanks for watching!

    Thanks for asking, I’d be happy to assist you. What do you wanna know in detail?
    I used the following aftermarket sets:

    I have the feeling I forgot one, but I think thats it.

    please let me know if you have any more questions.

    Sure, You mean these?:

    I used copper wire in various diameters. I have a large amount of them here from .2mm to 2mm and they are great for detailing.

    to create the twisted cables, cut a few x diameter wires in the same length and put the end in the head of a powerdrill. Once in, slowly start rotating and the wires will twist beautifully (-:
    It’s very easy to do, let me know if you have any other questions
