About Keith Forsyth (docdios)
FROM: ENGLAND - WEST MIDLANDS, UNITED KINGDOM

Keith Forsyth (docdios) comes from the small town of Stafford in the United Kingdom. He began his interest in modeling at an early age with armor being the main focus.

Hi Rob I should have half a dozen models on the IPMS Bulldogs stand this year and a DH2 on the IPMS Stafford stand, but nothing in the competition this year. Look forward to meeting you if you go, make sure you stop by and say Hi cheers Keith

Really cool looking vehicle. It's a shame that they (Italeri) don't do these anymore.

Hi Keith, Very nice model, i like the truck too much, but i think the photos too bright so i can't recognize the real colours. One more, the instruction maybe not correct about the arrows direction at the back of the rear view mirror

The mirrors don't have a rightside up. The model shows a flat one piece mirror in the frame. They can be mounted either way, arrows aremeaning less. I had a set of mirros that I installed on my M816 wrecker that had a small convex mirror that would be on the bottom to help eliminate the "blind spot" next to the vehicle I could tell it was a model, there is no trash in the cab! Looks great, I'll have to dig mine out and work on it. Since I live next to Ft Drum, NY I get to seeall the different camo patterns in use. Climb to Glory!

I have seen it today in a flesh, and it looks much better live than on a pictures.

Brilliant work Keith, good to see it on Saturday.

Hey Keith, this model looks great and I was thinking about locating the parts to do this same thing. I was wondering if it is possible to use the M-978 Heavy Fuel Tanker or if the M-977 HEMTT would work with the conversion kit. I have have seen both advised to use, but I don't know much about these kits and wanted to make sure I wasn't buying a model that wasn't compatible. Thanks
