Hi all,
I came back after a dangerous illness, and again I want to model.

The model I received as a Christmas gift. Due to the fact that years ago I photographed this vehiclein detail, for the construction resin model of AA.
I immediately began to build. At first glanceyou can see lots of detail and quality work from Hobby Boss.

Chassis & suspension.

I started construction of the chassis. (Photos tomorrow)

Very excited to see you posting again and feeling better, esp with the HET as a step by step build.

Glad you are doing better

Looking forward to this, I am hoping to get this kit and build the M1070. I don't have room for the trailer right now

Miroslav - this is excellent ! great to see this SBS - even bigger thanks for the reference photos.

I was studying instructions and noticed on the M1000 and noticed no instruction step for the engine cover retaining straps and even the handles - but they "magically" appear fitted on step 32. I have not checked the etch frets to try and find parts yet.

cheers
Mark

by process of elimination - I think

Sprue J part 3 - bonnet/hood strap/catch x 2
Sprue J part 19 - interior cab door handle x 2
Sprue K part 28- bonnet/hood handle x 2

I dont think anything else? except part G4 not labeled in Step 1 of instructions

cheers

Sorry I'm still in the chassis.
Here is a small error. The left tank is positioned so that the filling hole is too low. It is necessary to turn the tank, filling the hole - more up.
