Hi Miloslav.
Looking very promising, that new tractor. Waiting to see more.
Why is the nose extended? A new engine type?
I tried to find the answers on the web, however, without result.

Thanks in advance,

Paul

Hi Paul,

The M1070A1 has a new 700 hp engine, a new transfer case and other improvements to the suspension and drivetrain. I'd love to see one up close.

Seriously !!! Your pushing the package way too far for me, but what a wonderful log you got there... I have the whole kit on my bench and to work with your product is very a pleasure and your inspiration is the most appreciated. Thank you very much for sharing such a passion with the rest of us.

Miroslav,
Do you have a build trick to keep all your tires and the suspension level and balanced?

I've noticed that trucks seem to be the worst at trying to stay balanced since the suspensions and frames are usually multiple parts on most big truck kits. You do a wonderful job and I just wondered if you had a trick.

It's easy.
First Glue the first axis.
Second Glue the back of the fourth axis
These two axes give the wheels (no glue) and straight.
Thirdly, put on a third axis, then the second axis. Again put on wheels without sticking and compare everything to the plane. Glue shock absorbers and upper arms. the axes are fixed. After drying, add a drop of glue to all the joints between the lower arm and the axis.
sorry for my English

HET mania continues.
After a long pause, I began completing the M1070A1.
I will upload photos of the building. This way I can correct any errors.

So far, the project has just been stopped, but I think I'll come back to it. By September, I am busy with the new M 54 Gun Truck.
