    @grumpy,

    Sorry for my oh so late reply, I think it will be unnecessary by now but I feel like replying anyway.
    Yes, if you have the money I think it’s worth it by far because the end result will be more realistic, especially the tires.

    What did you buy in the end?

    Very good close-up photography had been done for this build. Something like this takes a tremendous amount of patience and discipline.

    Hi Boris. Excellent work!

    I am in the midst of building the HobbyBoss M1070 with the M1000 trailer. I am stuck on getting the ducting hooked on the connectors. And there’s a lot on this model (more than 4 meters).

    May I know how you did your ducting on this model? Thanks very much.

    Hi @rollingrock!
    Very sorry for my late reply, are you still stuck on this question?

    I used superglue and bought myself some very small diameter ducting on a Dutch online store. I did not use the original ducting since I did not like it, long time ago but I think I found it to stiff to work with.

    Does that help you?

    Do you have any pictures of your work< very curious (-:

    Thanks for the reply Boris. I have put the M1070+M1000 quite aside though to give way to a couple of Russian AFV projects. I think I have found a solution though, using 0.7mm heat shrink tubes to hook the ducting onto the ports. I just have to be careful though that I don’t heat up the part too much as it would easily melt.

    Got bits and pieces still in sub assemblies. 😉

    Thanks Boris.
