Hello model maker

As already announced I will present here the kit AT-T by Trumpeter. There will be built several vehicle variants of this kit. I would like to start with the bulldozer BAT-1. I will show the entire construction phase, but will not go into different details due to time constraints. The essentials of the construction will be seen. The idea before the construction was to recreate the essential parts inside the vehicle. The construction begins with the construction of the chassis. The metal chains are used by Friul.
Here are the first photos

I'll take a seat also here!
I have the kit in my stash,
it was planned to be built as Bulgarian vehicle(12 vehicles delivered).
But I only found one picture(post-1989), couldn't find out where and in which role it was used...
I was considering coupling it with PanzerShop's BAT conversion, but then I read quality-wise the conversions is hit or miss...
So your build comes in very timely!

Yes, your thoughts are good. With Panzer Shop you do not need to build it, build the parts yourself. You will have more pleasure in the model. If you need help, get in touch, I will help you. will also show here several photos of the original, which you can use. Do not want to present this report for a long time, so it goes immediately with the construction of the interior. The engine, transmission, radiator, steering gear, oil tanks, fuel tank, controls and so on have been installed. Not all parts are in the kit.
But see for yourself.

The construction report continues in the middle and rear of the vehicle. The air filters and fuel tanks with pipes were installed. The preparation of the winch can be seen. The winch motor for the dozer blade has been attached. It has been movably built so that the rope can be rolled up and unrolled. It continues with the bracket for the pulleys on the vehicle's bow for lifting and lowering the blade. Here are the first photos of the model, photos of the original, I will still show. Have fun watching.

Best regards LKWMAN

First of all thanks for your answers. To the question, I have used testor color in this model. Meanwhile, I have chosen MIG colors.
Now first photos of the original, before it goes on with the model. Here is a picture between the engine and radiator, the V-belts can be seen. Renewing is a complicated job that I have had to do several times. Look at the pictures and compare them to the model.








Here I am with the BAT-1 in the area in fast driving




And now again to the model. The construction continued with the attachment of the shovel mountings, the installation of the winch in the stern and the supports with crane on the platform for the transport of the dozer blade. The drive of the rope wind from the engine was also rebuilt. It corresponds approximately to the original. Here are the pictures of the model and reference pictures.

The construction report continues with the construction of the cabin. The pressure cylinders to start the engine, the ceiling lamp, the dashboard, first aid kit, the rod to close the radiator grille and other things are installed. Here are the pictures of the model and the original.

The construction report goes on, the cab was put on and the work on the blade began. The cabin is removable, so that the interior remains visible. The dozer blade is made of plastic and becomes movable as built in the original. The chains were replaced by the company Friul T-44M. Here are the new photos.

Thanks, Today we continue with photos of the finished model. The dozer blade can be raised and lowered with the aid of a screwdriver. The blade for the blade can be placed in front of and behind the blade or on the platform. This is shown on the photos.

Best regards LKWMAN

Here are two more models based on AT-T. the kit from the company Trumpeter is used again. These are the trenchers BTM and BTM-3. the kit deals with the vehicle BTM-3, which I will not go into detail. It can be built from the kit so. the first version BTM already differs from the kit, I will also go into more detail and show corresponding photos. Both vehicles use Friul chains again. The chains on the excavator buckets are unfortunately not included in the kit and must be grown by yourself. But here are some photos.




The BTM-3











the BTM I talk about here, the first version there was.









Here are the original pictures of the models.

The construction starts with the BTM. It should be the moving parts important. This concerns the lowering of the working organ and the suspension of the chassis. the working organ hangs on a frame, which is brought by a winch in the appropriate working position. that's the big difference to the BTM-3. But it is complicated to model in the model. But here are the photos, how the construction started.

the next stage of construction, the support for the working organ, the big difference to the BTM-3. it is very complicated to build. It has to be built movably

Thank you Terry. It always goes to the model maker himself, what he builds from it. But you have to know these vehicles from the original, dei these conversions.
Today, the kit idea continues with the excavator wheel, which differs from the BTM-3 in the number of buckets and the shape. I made the excavator buckets out of plastic. It was one of the most complicated tasks on the model. Here are the photos.

Do not want to continue to document the design, so today the finished photos of the model. Everything has been built as mobile as possible, so the transport and working position of the vehicle can be shown. The comparison to the BTM-3 follows.

On the model BTM-3 I enter at a later date. Today another model based on AT-T, it is the mine excavator MDK-2M. This model was built before the kit of Trumpeter AT-T appeared. It was completely self-made of plasic, the chains are metal chains of the company Friul, which have been changed. The model has been built to be movable so that the dozer blade and the sling can be changed in position. so are all job opportunities, as it is in the original, representable. The cab originated from a ZIL-151 cabin, which was cut in the middle. The cabin worde widened in the middle and used a third window. Here are some pictures of the finished model.

best regards LKWMAN

Here, the MDK-M loaded on low loaders, as it was often seen in the 70s on the streets of the GDR. The low loader pulled from the truck Kraz-214. The low loader is self-made.

Today another model based on AT-T. It is the AT-T with planing direction OTT-M, of this vehicle there are unfortunately no original photos, but I have seen this vehicle in the original. The raising and lowering of the dozer blade takes place via the rope wind in the rear of the vehicle. The rope can be led to the left or right of the vehicle. The conversion of the vehicle took place in the respective troop units. Here are the first pictures. Starting kit here was Trumpeter.
