Good review
did Trumpeter leave room for an aftermarket engine in your opinion? or would the cab have to be reworked?
Thanks

Hi Jim. Yes, I think there is room to add an engine.

I have been toying with the idea on a standard M1078. I would make the cab hinged so you could tilt it forward to show off the engine.

I am surprised Trumpeter didn't add the engine and cab tilt like they did on their Chinese 50-ton Tank Transporter. That is a really good kit and quite the sleeper. You don't realize how nice it is until opening the box.
