This section is for builds that are not strictly Tamiya or Heng Long. For instance, replacing the electronics from a WSN or Matorro, or even a scratch-build.

Did some work for a friend to build a German 1943 Eastern Front Fuel Trailer from a set of plans found from an Austrian exhibit.
We used a little artisitc license, but this trailer can hold 2x Wehrmacht 200L drums and has workign leaf spring suspension and a jockey wheel and the wheels have bearings.
Also got 3d printed tyres and a sprung loaded and articulating tow hitch

We also have an option to use 40mm offroad knobbly tyres with slightly different wheel design

Dont share any of the files I'm afraid, but happy to print at a cost with the oil barrels included.

Also one of our friends shared some pictures of his fuel trailer showing off some other parts we supplied like the crane for his Bergepanzer

Received my fuel trailer and Maybach Tiger engine today! Absolutely top notch museum quality feel to these models. Hefty and solidly built. I almost hate to paint them. My Collection grows.

Stop it! Just kidding of course. By the way, hats off to your packing and shipping dept! These models could’ve been run over by a Tiger tank and I think their packaging would’ve kept them from any damage. Very impressive as always :clap:

Yea Catherine does a great job of wrapping carefully. Its maybe ott, but we care about the models we produce and we know they can get a rough ride in transit.
I dont want to try that tho, I have a feeling Catherine may have to reprint the models after a tiger tank driving over them lol
