I would just like to present Another one of my projects, The Modelcollect 1/72 scale Pershing 2 Missile with M983 HEMTT tractor.
Lost and lots of wheels...
Making these wheels is a bit challenging, sing the instructions aren't exactly clear where the parts fit together. i made a few mistakes putting the wheels together. i also had to sand some parts to make them fit.
Beautiful detail on the wheels.
The level of detail is impressive, especially on the engine. though this will be covered up.
I encountered some difficulty with the trailer stand.
I do not remember exactly which part but there is a problem on the instructions with E49,( and possibly E48)
The initial part on the instructions doesn't reach the trailer stand.
However, when substituting it for E47 (and E46 for the opposite side) it fits well.
These parts E34 AND E33 dont have tabs to attach them.
so i resorted to making tabs for the parts E34 and E33 to be attached to.
What a beauty.
I Built the launcher with moving parts to raise the Missile or down. I used an addition of brass wire and plasticard to replace dome of the original parts.
The kit is designed to have moving parts, however they break very easily.
The missile needed plenty of filling and sanding.
The first shade of green after i primed the model black. i didn't like this shade of green.
This is the Pershing missile once it was completed. i changed the shade of green with a mix of sand, brown and green.
On the same day that i completed My Nuclear arsenal, i had a military parade.
Here is the show room...
To conclude this build. i would just like to say that Modelcollect did a great job at detailing the Pershing 2 missile and the HEMTT tractor. When i first heard of this model i knew that this is a must have in my collection. However, this model is not that easy and straight forward to build because of fragile parts and small errors in the instructions. It is better suited for an experienced modeler.
Thank you for taking the time to see my project,
