Hi,

coming up is a Tiran_5 Sh with KMT_5 mine roller device

kits used:
SKIF Tiran_5 Sh
KMT_5 device self built and scratched
Tiran details by Skif and Legend (left over parts)

the model is intended to have all hatches closed, and in transit to location on a transporter

Tracks by Trumpeter - 1/35 02035 Russian tank 1946 580mm

Wheels by an after market vendor, whom name I am not sure of

and surely lots and lots of scratched parts and components

enjoy and happy modelling [img]

Great sounding project, but...do you have photographic evidence of a Tiran (or any other IDF tank for that matter) being on a trailer with a mine roller device attached? My Merkava was a 'Nochri Dalet' equipped designated break-through vehicle and I can tell you there's absolutely no way you embark any trailer with a mine roller attached to a Merk...

hey

yes, sure I have photographic evidence of a Tiran_5 Sh tank that is equipped with a KMT_5 mine roller device; which is embarked on an early type IDF semi-trailer/trailer

the images are during operation peace in Galilee

I am struggling to upload the images

any suggestions please?

please let me know how you are uploading images so I can do the same

as for embarking a tank on trailer with KMT, yes, it is done in reverse mode

once I post the images you will notice how it is done

cheers
