      last few weeks ive been putting together some ideas on my next build
      im pretty sure i have most of it figured out how to do
      only difference between what im going to is that will have aworking water cannon on top the cab. other then that i think i can pretty much come close to it.
      the truck will be full functional
      i have the scale at 1/11.5
      rails are 843mm long
      this will have full detailed interior
      opening doors
      sounds lights etc
      i know its a little early to show you guys, because i really cant start for awhile. but i can do alittle here and there .once i get the t3000 done ,then i can go full throttle on it
      in the mean time , ive ordered parts for the chassis,tire, rims and axles
      heres a picture of the 1:1 m978 hemtt heavy fire truck tanker 8x8 . i will paint it the same scheme

    Joe; I love building suspensions, models or real ones. I sometimes think that mine turn out really cool; until I see what you build. Holy Cow, you are in a class all of your own. Absolutely incredible!!!

  15. i did alot work lately on the hemtt
    the sud frame i mounted mounting brackets and added alittle more detail to it, but i think its ready for primer m978 hemtt heavy fire truck tanker 8x8
    the engine compartment. i received in the 65 turn motor and 16-1 planetary trans. this should give it plenty low in torque
    the motor and trans will be mounted where i have to build the resin m978 hemtt heavy fire truck tanker 8x8 motor arround it.
    ive also finished painting the fron axles and suspension. really happy with this weeks progress
