Hi,

This is my first post, I hope you enjoy what I present.
After seeing some photos I took courage to face this challenge, to build an M-1079 CMHT, I used the kit as a basis of M-998 (Academy), some accessories Verlinden, Armorscale, Tamiya and Legend and the rest was built in Scratch.



The dimensions were made with reference to this picture (Prime Portal Site).



Looking for more references, I found this picture that made the project more interesting.



Already with the ideas on paper, I began the project...



















While researching some more, came the idea of making a trailer with a generator, and that's what I did...







Were built new bumpers for the model ...







The model was painted in standard NATO, with armored doors and generator in the sand, the inks used Lifecolor.




The first test with the positioning of the load...









To complete the model, weathering...













The model already finalized.











Note:

The right was to use these wheels...



Do not put due to the model is almost ready, when they arrived, the suspension would be changed, and I was afraid that did not support, for being weak.

Hope you enjoy, and I apologize for grammatical errors.

Hugs...

Welcome to Armorama Sergio!!

Excellent work on a subject that is seldom built.

We can always use another HMMWV fan here.

Thank you all,

This model was very nice to do, usually take at least four months working on a kit, it came out in two months, I took my vacation ...
My regret was not doing the conversion on a Tamiya kit, the Academy, in my view is very weak in details ...

Hugs,

SÚrgio
