1⁄35M911 & M1A1
The M911 is the resin kit from Hobby Fan, and the M1A1 is from Tamiya. The instructions did not show the colour, so it was based on a real one. Tamiya’s Desert Yellow was mixed to the rate of 1 Desert Yellow to 3 White. Oil paint was used to rub off the colour, and weathering with set A,B of Tamiya and pastel. The lights and priority lights are from a mass of resin, so we had to pierce a hole, and then replace with a transparent piece of plastic. The fuel tank area has two options (a large tank and a small one), but we chose the small tank in order to add another axle. Computer electric wires were used to make an air pipe from the tractor to the trailer, we also added the chains for the trailer because the kit does not include any. Notice: in the instruction, the arrowhead’s direction of rear-vision mirror is opposite side compared to the real one. Rear-vision mirror was made with a decal. The tires would connect with the ground because the chassis was twisted (producer’s fault), therefore, the whole axle had to be rebuilt.
